This little clutch is the perfect compliment to both fancy evening wear and stylish daytime outfits. It looks just as great in silk as it does in denim!

Check my Etsy shop for kits to make this envelope clutch that include pre-cut fabric and interfacing!

finished dimensions
The envelope clutch lies flat at 11" wide and 6" tall. It has a flap with optional piping, a magnetic snap closure, and a 7.5" wide interior pocket.

Check out my blog for a free tutorial on how to easily adjust the size of this clutch (and add a zipper!) for a totally different look.

skill level
The evening envelope clutch is perfect for beginners, but fun for more experienced sewers as well. The pattern includes clear instructions on how to insert a magnetic snap, and how to make custom piping. The pattern can be easily adapted to create a larger or smaller clutch.

suggested fabrics
Medium-weight evening fabrics with some body, like silk or poly blend brocade, damask, shantung, taffeta or dupioni would be great choices. Silky and thin, but slighly stiff fabrics meant for window treatments are pefect for this clutch. Use the same fabric or something slightly lighter weight for the lining.

Avoid fabrics that are sheer, stretchy, knit, drapey, slippery, heavyweight, or with pile like velvet or faux fur.

materials needed
- 1/2 yard of self fabric and 1/2 yard of lining fabric
- 1 yard of lightweight fusible interfacing (I like Pellon brand Shape-Flex SF 101)
- optional: 20" length of 5mm cord and 1/2 yard of fabric for piping on view A
- magnetic snap
- scrap of felt
- basic sewing supplies + a zipper foot
