I keep reading this thread over & over trying to get the nerve up to try to make a clutch like this.  Everyone's bags on here are just great.

Join my yahoo group Always Sewn With Love to purchase fabrics at or near wholesale prices

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

So absolutely functional! I can't wait to make my own and show you the results...! Grin Better than the genericness that comes with department stores.

Thanks so much for the gorgeous bag and easy-to-follow tutorial.  I just shipped one off to my dear friend who's studying in England.  But not before getting it to pose for a photograph.  Here it is:

And don't let fear of it turning out badly deter you, those of you who are drooling and wishing you had one of your own.  I had to rip the lining out of mine twice, and it is obviously still quite wonky and not nearly as classy and nicely pressed as the original Laurasaurus.  Plus I used upholstery fabric, which was way too thick to do what I wanted it to do and was unravelling like crazy...I don't know when I'm going to learn my lesson about that!  But still, I came out with something nice enough to give to my dear friend.  So give it a shot!

Well, I made one too and it came out good! It's a xmas present for my gf's mom. No pictures right now but I made it out of a thick brown wool for the outside and a bright pink cotton lining...I had a little trouble with attaching the lining to the outside because the fabrics are both very thick, but it went ok in the end.

A couple things:

I think for anyone who is still having trouble with the band-attaching that it's important to have a lining that's a little big, then you can do the fold-over and it looks more finished when you put the bands on.

Also, instead of doing the bottom seam and turning it right-side out, I made them like tiny bags and did the whole seam around, leaving a turning-hole. Then I used a crochet hook to pull the bands rightside out, I think it looks more finished that way and a little easier than having to fold the edges under. I also used heavy duck (canvas) for interfacing on the bands, it makes them nice and stiff and it wasn't hard to sew.

Anyways, thanks Laurasaurus for an awesome tutorial!

i've been wanting to make this clutch for a while! and since i was so inspired today i did. but i dont keep a lot of fabric around i tend to just get what i need when i need it. I used some old pants.
The outside is some boys khaki pants

The inside is some teal scrubs i had

I wanted it extra extra sturdy so there is really thin cardboard sewn into the lining.
I also wanted it to be extra extra big! Here's a picture for scale

I was sooo excited to make this because yours turned out so beautifully! I added a little pocket inside and used a covered snap button because I am still nervy about buttonholes. This is the first purse I've made that looks purse-like (and incidentally, my first post), so I'm pretty pumped up.

Here's what I came up with...

And here's the inside.

Thanks so much for such a great tutorial!!
