How to sew a small wristlet phone clutch with interior pocket

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire! 

Today, I am here to show you how to sew a small clutch that is designed to hold an iPhone 6 or smaller. This particular design is unique because it can be worn on the belt as well as the wrist. The clutch closes via a classic snap and there is an interior envelope style pocket to hold those items you need to keep secure, yet accessible at all times.

For this project you will need to precut the following fabric pieces:

(8) 4.5″ x 8″ pieces of home decor weight material

(1) 3″ x 26″ piece of home decor weight material

(1) 2″ strip of sew in hook and loop tape

(1) 1″ d or o ring

(1) snap set (www.snapsource.com)

For my sample clutch, I used a great linen/cotton/canvas blend from the Hawthorne Threads in house collection:

Today I am here with our final sewing tutorial for 2017 in which I will show you how to make a wristlet key fob.

When I owned my brick and mortar boutique this style of key fob was one of my very best sellers. Everyone loves these and therefore they are the ultimate gift!

To make one fob you will need a piece of quilt weight cotton fabric that measures 4″ x 12″ and a like size piece of iron on Pellon interfacing. Plus, the key fob hardware set which you can find for sale at Joanne.com

I hope you enjoy the project and all of your handmade holiday gifts are well received! I will be back next week with a round up video to closeout our year as well as to provide more details about my vision for the channel in 2018.

Until then, please know the creative genius in me, celebrates the creative genius in you!
