    Hello, I’ve watched your video over and over. I only have one question. When you fuse the 13″ x 10″ to the fusible Pellon 808, 13 1/2 to 13″ (centered) sewing on the long edge, but when you hold it up it looks like the 10″ is at the top, what I’m I missing. Other-than that I really enjoyed
    the video.

      Thank you! My rings were purchased from a jewelry making store in Downtown, Los Angeles, but they don’t have a website. Try Amazon.

    Anita, these are simply gorgeous and you do such a good job at instructing.
    About how much fabric would you say you need to purchase to make each clutch? Do you have a link to the animal print fabric you used? I hope so!!

    Keep letting God shine through you! You are such a classy lady!!

    God bless!

      Hi Yvette! Purchase 1/2 yard. I don’t have a link to the animal print. It was leftover from another project. I purchased it about 3 or 4 years ago at JoAnn’s.

      Thank you so much!

    This is an excellent video tutorial. It is quite inspirational. The possibilities are endless. You could add an inner pocket to the lining. I want to make a bag to match each of my outfits. And what an excellent ideas as gifts for someone special. I am writing from the UK; from Wales in fact.

      Hi Sarah! Yes, the possibilities are endless. I totally forgot to mention the tip about adding a pocket to the inside. Yes, some of my clutches have a small pocket inside. Your family and friends would love receiving these as gifts. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, Anita
    A Nice and useful video, pretty easy to understand and your language and how you verbalize and express every idea was very clear (easy to understand for a person like me that English is not my first language). I’m going to try to make one o two of those clutches.

    Keep the good work and God Bless you.

    Hi Anita, a couple questions for you. I have a singer machine, do I need special needles for the thicker fabric? Also, when you added the frame,I noticed you just pushed the sides in is there any way to secure the sides so they don’t pop out? Thank you

      Krista, I have the same question. Anita, is there a way to secure the sides?

      Hi Krista! Great questions!
      (1) I used a size 90/14 needle.
      (2) I just changed link in this post to exact frame that I used.
      (3) I don’t know of a way to secure frame. I’ve had no issues while carrying my clutches with fabric popping outside frame.

    Beautiful clutch purses Anita! I watched your YouTube instructions….easy to understand your verbal instructions, and very clear ‘how to’ illustrations. I could actually see what you were doing without any obstructions. Your body positions were spot on. Your video person (husband) is very good at recording! It is a blessing to be able to make our own clothing, accessories etc. I met a woman some time ago who covered some of her shoes (pumps) with beautiful fabrics from her fabric stash. Keep up the good work! I love your blog!
