Can I recommend an excellent basic pattern for a clutch bag from Kwik Sew and it’s free!!. It is a free download from www.Kwiksew.com. The pattern number is 5001. The purse comes in 2 sizes – 9 1/2″[24cm] and 10 1/2′[27cm] and comes with the usual excellent Kwik Sew instructions and diagrams. It took me about 2 hours to make the small one. The purse only requires 3/8yd [0.35m] of fabric and lining.
