Since I have a newly reorganized sewing room, courtesy of my boyfriend and a trip to IKEA, I have been sewing like crazy. I made the 3 smaller clutches (4 1/2 x 9) the other day, and the larger (12 x 6) a little while ago. I just winged the small size, and it was super easy! I used snaps as closures on the small clutches, first with a snap setter, with poor results, then resorted to a hammer. I gave up on the bigger one, because of finicky fabric, and used black velcro. I would really suggest trying a bag like this, because they sew up fast, and are instant gratification. I made two for Halloween, and the other two for anytime bags.
