Story Quilt's classic vintage clutch purse and pattern

I noticed that a lot of Japanese ladies love to use pretty good size and cute clutch purse when they are having their leisure outings.  The size of the purse is normally big enough to put some cosmetic items such as lipstick and compact powder, money and personnel document, and maybe a smartphone too.  It’s light and easy to carry around.  I like the idea so much (especially when I have shoulder pain sometimes).

With simple twist in the fabrics and clutch frame used, I am able to change the style of the clutch purse to suit my occasion.  Since I have got nice rosy vintage fabric, I prefer to make a vintage clutch purse today.  Hmmm …. Size wise , I have a few 12.5cm clutch frame, let met start with that size of clutch purse.

With just 3 pieces of fabrics for FRONT and INNER sides, and fusible interface or iron on batting and 12.5cm clutch frame, I am able to start my clutch purse project already. This project is just perfect for friends with all level of sewing skills.  And for friends with beginner sewing skill, it is advisable for you to try out clutch purse project, you will surely learn a lot of technique here.

Here is the result of my work, if you are fast enough, you can complete this within the day.  Hope you like my work ^v^

It has a larger opening and good size to put quite a number of goodies 

It is also a way to decorate your dressing table too.  I love the idea of making bag not only for daily use but also, I want it to be a decorative item at home.
