Flourish Clutch- pleated, framed purse sewing pattern
The Flourish Clutch is an elegant sewing pattern for creating a framed clutch in a rectangle frame. This pattern is simple to put together and ends up with fantastic results. You can create it from luxurious silks and satins for an evening clutch, or use a beautiful patterned cotton for a more casual look. It can even be made with thin vinyl or leather. You can make it in three sizes. This pattern is best for intermediate sewers and up. Diagrams and a photo tutorial are included.
