amber clutch {new pdf pattern}

You guys, I'm so excited as I have a new pattern to show you today. 

This is Amber Clutch ~ a super handy foldover zipper pouch in two sizes. 

Large: 7'' wide on bottom x 4 ¾'' tall x 1 ½'' deep when folded 
Small:  6'' wide on bottom x 3 ¾'' tall x 1'' deep when folded

The large one also features a welt zipper pocket on the back. It's just the right size to keep one's change, keys, chapstick, or other small items.

I used designer quilting cotton for both exterior and lining of these pouches. However, canvas or even kraf-tex paper or home decor fabric would work well as exterior fabrics (especially for the large clutch), just skip adding interfacing to the main panels and you are good to go.

This is an easy, beginner friendly pattern. I think anyone with just a bit of experience with zippers can successfully sew up this pouch.

I used metal zippers (purchased from Zipit on Etsy) for my clutches but you can definitely go with nylon ones if that's what you prefer/ have on hand. 

!!! This is a measure and cut pattern, no templates needed !!!

Materials needed to make Amber Clutch (large size): 1 FQ (fat quarter) measures 18'' x 21''
 1 FQ fabric A (exterior panels + zipper tab) 
1 FQ fabric B (main lining + zipper pocket lining)
½ yard medium weight fusible interfacing (I used SF101) 
1 – 8'' long metal or nylon zipper 
1 - 6'' long metal or nylon zipper 
2 zipper pulls (optional)

As usual, I enlisted help of some lovely makers to test the pattern for me. Here are their beautiful creations.

Ellyn used adorable quilting cotton with the addition of fabulous leather tags to made both sizes of this clutch. 

And then she even went ahead and cut into her own stunning hand woven fabric to make yet another clutch. Beautifully done!

And just look at these stunning clutches in Merimekko fabric Merja whipped up.

Lovely colorful clutch by Vicki.

And last, but definitely not least, we have this adorably spotty clutch made by Deb.
