Fold Over Zipper Clutch

After being MIA for so long, the other day, I decided that I needed to sew something. I needed to make something that I could just sit down, and sew, in a single sitting. After trolling Pinterest, I figured a fold-over clutch was a pretty easy project. I had made zippered pouches before, and figured this wasn't far off, so I gathered a bunch of tutorials, and got to work.

I had a bag pictured in my head, I just had to recreate it. I choose to make my pieces 11" x 15". (Which made for a 10" x 14" finished product.) I knew I wanted a zipper, metal specifically. I had to buy a 14" zipper, it cost about $4 at Hancock Fabrics, and cut it down. I also knew I wanted a back pocket, and an inside pocket.

I also bough a 7" metal zipper for a back pocket, that was about $2.75. I used all the tutorials below, to create the bag that I had in my head.

Lastly, I added the bow. It is made from felt, the $0.25 a sheet kind, so I might replace it with something better, but not yet.

I love the way it turned out. The inside is black fleece, which I regret, making the inside of a purse black, is never a good idea...

Other than that I love it. Espeically now, in the winter, the pop of yellow is a reminder, that summer is on its way.

Here are the tutuorials that I used to create my bag:
