This time I decided to use some cut out pieces of fabric that were left when I was making some other projects. This little purse is a good idea when you don’t have a lot of fabric.

As normally, there was a lot of improvisation when I was sewing, so there won’t be any measurements with this project also. You should adjust the fabric size to the size of your metal clutch and if you have any problems you should check this page, where I found everything described better and more specific!

But if you’re more free style you can also follow this instructions 🙂

What you need:

– super glue

– scissors

– metal clutch

– fabric (flax, cotton, whatever…)

– pins, needle, thread

– sewing machine 🙂

Step 1:

You should cut out 8 pieces of fabric (4 for outside and 4 for inside layer), as you see on the picture. Again, check the website with a simple tutorial for more information. I used orange flax for the outside layer and the other, more synthetic fabric for the lining.

Step 1

Step 1

Step 2:

Pin the edges, leave one cm for the edges. You have to sew each side separately (outside and inside layer).

Step 2

Step 3:

Once you’ve made both layers you should turn the outside layer (orange) “on the outside” (so that you can see the edges from inside). The outside layer should be turned with the edges on the inside. Pin the edges of both fabric and sew 3 of them and leave one so you can later  turn the fabric inside out.

Step 4:

Through the one edge you didn’t sew out the orange flax outside so that you will get fabric like on the picture.

Step 4

Step 4

Step 5:

Once you’ve got the lining on the inside of the bag you have to sew all the edges (and of course the whole that is still on one edge), to secure them one more time.

Step 5

Step 5

Step 6:

I used super glue to stick the bag on the metal clutch. After you are sure that the glue works you can also put thread on the metal clutch (it has holes).

Good luck! 😉
