I've been seeing keykalou patterns on craftster forever!!  I love her clutches and have wanted to try them out for-EVER!!  Well, guess what I finally purchased a couple days ago?  The three patterns I've wanted to try...so, here's my favorite one.  The wallet clutch...I love the shape of it.  My first try came out smaller than is called for in the pattern...I think that's due to me using the wrong batting/interfacing.  What do you think?

Partially opened...snap closure.  You can add a button over top of the snap, but I chose not to.

Completely open...there are two pockets which the picture doesn't show really well.  I have to say after using this for a couple days, everything stays secure.  I even had change in it that didn't fall out...and there's no zipper!  This held my cell phone, cash/cards, and other small stuff.  

Gonna try out a couple more today ...hopefully they turn out the right size.

Sorry!  I thought I uploaded this picture for the post but forgot.  The demensions are 6" wide, 4" tall.  I just finished another one...using the correct batting and it is 6 3/4" x 4 1/2"...
