|This is a review of the MINI version of this pattern, which is free, but does not contain illustrated instructions. The full version is bigger, with more strap options, and better instructions.|
This is a lined, mini clutch/wristlet pattern with zippered closure and two pleating options on the exterior panels.
One size. The finished clutch is small, but big enough for your phone, keys, money, and lipstick. You can get an idea of the scale in my photos.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! Mine look very much like the photos and the line drawings.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Even though there are no illustrations on the free version, the pleats are marked very well on the pattern pieces and I found the written instructions to be very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes really - these were a great way to use up small bits of satin leftover from other dresses I'd made, were very quick to sew, and totally useful if you want a little evening bag to match your outfit.
I used satin scraps leftover from my Matthew Williamson birthday dress and my swirl sheath dress and a bit of floral lining leftover from the former, too.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any changes at all!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would TOTALLY sew these again for myself to match a fancy dress - I'm always in need of little clutches like this! It was really hard to actually give these away! I made these for my husband's twin, teenaged nieces. They've pretty much only wanted cash or gift cards for a few years now, but this year I fancied giving them a little something extra to hold their gift. I was kinda hoping they wouldn't like them so I could keep them!
A fantastic little pattern that's easy, quick, uses scraps, and is infinitely useful.
