The peaceful days in the country are long over but there was still time to make this sweet clutch! If you want to reproduce it, here are the instructions!
- 2 pieces of inner fabric with 17"X 10 1/2"
- 2 pieces of outside fabric with 17"X 10 1/2"
- 2 pieces of interfacing with 17"X 10 1/2"
- 2 pieces of inner fabric with 8"x13"
- 1 button
Start by attaching the interfacing with an hot iron to the inside of the outside fabric.
With a table dish (this is a small trick from a practical person) round up one of the corners on the biggest size of the rectangle of the outer fabric, marking with a pen. Cut by the mark.
Use the small piece of fabric you have cut out to mark the opposite corner on the outer fabric and the two equivalent corners on the inner fabric. Cut out all three of them.
With a pin, mark the middle of one of the pieces of outer fabric (on the opposite side of where you have removed the corners) and with the help of a ruller mark 2 1/2" to each side of the center pin. Repeat the operation with all three other pieces of fabric.
Make a pleat in each piece of fabric by aligning the side pins with the center pin, making the fabric fold on each side.
Close the pleat on each piece by stitching over the folds with the sewing machine.
Place the two pieces of outside fabric, right sides together and secure them with pins. Repeat this operation with the two pieces of inner fabric.
With pins, mark the distance of 2" from the top on the two sides of each group of fabric and stitch all around it below the mark, backstitching in the begining and in the end..
Turn the outside fabric inside out and place the inner fabric inside of it, securing with pins.
Com cada uma das tiras de tecido interior, faça uma fita de viés, dobrando com o ferro.
With each piece of inner fabric, make a bias tape with the help of an hot iron.
Place each piece of "bias tape" of fabric on the top of each side of the bag, folding it towards the inside in the beggining and the end. Secure with pins.
Stitch all around the piece of fabric, on both sides of the clutch.
Fold the fabric down so that it overlaps the outter fabric. If you want, take the bag to an haberdashery store so they can place a closing of some sort on the inside of it. Stitch a big button on the front.
Agora mãos à obra e fico à espera de ver o vosso resultado final!
Now get to work and I look forward to see your final result!
