hello,  Like so many other craftsters have said, this is a great clutch!  Thank you so much for the tut.  Have you or anyone used this pattern and added a strap.  I'm looking for a clutch with a wristlet type strap. thanks.

It would be very easy to add a strap. Make the strap, turn it and iron it with the right side facing you, then place the strap in between the two outside pieces (right sides together) before you sew the outside piece of the clutch together. Does that make sense?

Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.

i used a pattern very similar to your tut and added a strap.  I used a piece of trim, not a ribbon, but similar for the wristlet part.  I'm away from my home base, right now, so I don't know the pattern number.  I got confused, so I'll try to post my problem.  My clutch turned out OK, even though it didn't turn out like the pattern.

I've got to learn how to post photos.  thanks.

Thanks for the toturial!, it was all very clear and easy to follow. The only  thing I didn't get was how to do the pleat, I ended up with a smaller purse, as I use the decimal system not the inches (?) one i might've made a mistake when re-measuring the project, or i did to many pleats.
I also added a hang, so i guess i ended up with something not very similar to the clutch Wink , still, you can clearly see your pattern there, great job!

Here are some pictures:

Awesome clutch, thank you for sharing the tutorial!
I linked it in a series I'm writing for my blog (http://rock-n-roll-stops-the-traffic.blogspot.it/2012/05/diy-from-head-to-toe-10.html#more), hope you don't mind Smiley

Thanks so much for this tutorial! I've never sewn anything to a pattern before so this looked quite scary to begin with, but I was surprised about how easily it came together. I used a different fabric for the handle section though, as I used scraps so didn't have enough of the main fabric but I'm pretty happy with it  Smiley
There's no fastening though, I didn't have any snap fastenings and was so excited about getting it finished, so think I'll just pop some velcro or something in later.
