How to Sew a Glamorous Felt Clutch

Dec 05, 2011

Get a grip on style with a fan-embellished bag. In this article from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 5, Erika Kern demonstrates how felt can go glamorous with this simple-to-sew clutch. Wool felt has long been considered a fabric for kids because its resistance to fraying makes it one of the easiest materials to use. But it can also elevate a project beyond the everyday. Made from richly toned wool felt, this clutch feels lush, high-end, and completely grown-up. If felt doesn’t suit you, this pattern can work with any sturdy fabric.  A fan-folded flap detail lends a modern touch to this clutch’s simple half-moon shape. Sew on gems, fancy buttons, or vintage jewels or pin on a few stunning brooches to make a bag that’s uniquely you!
