TO MAKE UP

Cut the lin­ing fab­ric and in­ter­fac­ing to the same shape as the Clutch Bag, leav­ing a 1.25cm seam al­lowance.

Fold the Bag so that Rows 74-80 sit at the base. The bot­tom of the ex­tra sts from Row 8 should be joined to the row end of Rows 74-79. Us­ing Yarn A, sew the side seams to­gether.

EDG­ING

With RS fac­ing, join Yarn B into the top point of the flap.

Round 1 Ch1, 3dc into the point of the flap, dc in each row end and st, around the flap and the sts of Row 199 of the Bag, ss to beg dc. [122 dc]

Fas­ten off and weave in ends.

TO FIN­ISH

Con­struct lin­ing fab­ric and in­ter­fac­ing in same way as main Clutch Bag. In­sert into the Clutch Bag and hand-stitch lin­ing around the in­side of the flap, top of the sides and top front edge. Sew a pop­per fas­ten­ing to the in­side of front flap.

This cute clutch is lined with both in­ter­fac­ing and co­or­di­nat­ing fab­ric, hand-sewn in place
