DIY Wedding Clutch with Lace Bow How To:
Cut two 9 inches by 15 inches rectangles from the fabric*. Note: The project sample was created by using the reverse side of the suede fabric as the lining. If you choose not to do this, purchase additional fabric for the lining and cut one rectangle from each of the main fabric and the lining fabric.
Cut one 8 inch by 14 inch rectangle from the foam interfacing/stabilizer.
Place lace edging across the right side of the clutch fabric, situating it 1 ½ inches up from the front edge. Top stitch along either side of the lace edging. Diagram A
With right sides together, pin the front and back of the clutch together and stitch around the outside edge using a ½ inch wide seam and leaving a 4 inch opening along one side. Clip the corners. Diagram B
Turn right side out and insert the foam interfacing/stabilizer. Turn in the opening along the side and hand stitch closed.
Fold the bottom edge of the clutch up towards the top forming a 3 ½ inch deep pocket. Pin. Topstitch around the outside edge of the clutch, stitching ¼ inch away from the outside edges. Sew snap to the clutch. Diagram C
Cut a 18” length of lace edging and fold in half, overlapping the two ends. Using a needle and thread stitch the end together and then wrap the thread around the center forming a bow. Stitch back into the center to secure the thread wraps. Diagram D
Cut a 1 inch by 2 ½ inch rectangle from the main fabric. Fold the edges in towards the center and then wrap around the center of the bow, overlapping the ends and stitching to secure.
Stitch the bow on top of the lace trim. See project photo
