Make Your Own Clutch Bag
1. Make a sack (any proportion; bags shown, clockwise from top, are 16 inches by 12 inches, 9 inches by 7 inches, 5 inches by 5 inches).
2. Box the bottom corners.
3. Turn right side out. Pleat the top at the sides or in the middle; whipstitch to secure the pleats.
4. Hand-sew a flap to back of bag; add a small button loop closure. Or stitch a “waistband” to top of bag; cover seam with contrasting bias; then sew a long bias loop to inside of one pleat, a button to opposite outside.
