Update: How to sew a clutch and finish it

Hi all!! Hope you are having a relaxing Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to pop in and share a little update on a past post I did about making your own clutch purse….

A long while back I made a Youtube about how to sew a clutch purse. It has been viewed over 25,000 times. Y’all like the clutch purse…a lot. I have also had many questions about it…and so here is an update to answer some of those questions…I hope this helps yall ;)

1. What size are the clasp for this clutch and where did you buy them?

The only place I have found that carries this size and style is a buyer on etsy from Hong Kong. I would suggest buying 5 or more at a time to make the shipping worth while. I buy the 18cm clasp. Here is the link on Etsy. You may have to message them and tell them how many you want to buy…then they will set up a listing for you to purchase. They are an  18cm clasp with grooves just on the top…not on the sides.

2. How do you finish the purse?

Yes…an important step that I completely failed to leave out of the video. I am so sorry about this!! Here is my attempt to make it up to you….A photo tutorial…on how to finish your clutch purse….

  3. I just watched the video…. WOW!! it was GREAT!!! I can’t wait to try my hand at it…. I think it would be a nice Christmas gift for the girls on my Christmas list

  4. Elizabeth says:

    I cannot seem to find the measurements for this clutch. Can you please tell me how to find them? Thank you and I just love this clutch!!

  5. Hello!
    I can’t wait to make these for my bridesmaids! It looked from the video like the fusible interface and fusible fleece were slightly different measurements from the actual fabric… Can you please share what that would be, or should I just do them the same size?

    Thanks a million!!

  6. I was wondering if I could use a 19cm instead of an 18cm? What would that do to the clutch?

  7. Theresa says:

    Great video and I am glad you clarified the end. Do you have a pattern that you use because I wanted to make an oversized clutch. The clasp I want to use is 10inches or 25.4 cms, how would you say I should approach that? Also another question is with the 18cm clasp can I give the purse more height or width?
