Soft envelope clutch tutorial

Mother's Day is almost here! Why not make something pretty for your mom, I'm obsessed with bags big or small . A mom can never have too many right?

Here is how to make an envelope clutch such and easy thing to do, is most likely that you have everything on hand already.


 for pattern use small paper envelope size 3 5/8" x 6.5" 
main fabric (I used scraps from this)
linning fabric
light batting
sew on snaps
sewing machine 

Open paper envelope as this

Fold paper envelope on half, trace it with water soluble pen onto fabric.
Cut 1 fabric, 1lining,1batting on FOLD

Place main and lining fabric right face together, batting must be on the top of lining.
Pin and sew around with 1/4" seam allowance leaving a 2.5" opening for turning. Cut excess batting since it tends to expand as you sew.

turn inside out and press, sew envelope sides as shown below. 
sew the snap on and press.

Done!! Make one for you, one for your mom.




  1. Great idea!! I've actually been thinking about making a few to use as clutches :)

    Take Care,
