Tutorial Trial Thursday


This Post Has been Updated.

The tutorial I used for this project is no longer available. ;0(  BUT there is a pattern for this bag ;0)   Here is the link:


It’s five dollars and totally worth it!


Today’s tutorial comes from WeAllSew.com.  This is a site ran by Bernina and often has free pdf downloads or sew-alongs.  You should check it out!  Well I am in the process of learning how to make a weekender so I though I would keep working at my zipper skills!

Let’s see the results:

  • How long did it take? It took me about an hour and a half.  It came together really quick!  It was amazing!
  • Was it easy to follow? The pdf was easy to read and was written by Mimi Goodwin.  The pdf has lots of picture and clear directions.
  • Do you have any tips? I only had a little felt.  I was able to make two of these fold over clutches in three hours and one of them I just fabric instead of felt.  It was much easier to sew that one.
  • Would you make it again?  Of course I would!  I can see myself making this clutch often!  I love it.

Okay, here is what you have been waiting for the PICTURES!!  Can you tell I am proud ;0)  …and modest!

Okay guys, so what do you think?  I am in love!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!

  1. Ha! I ran across this tutorial a few days ago and knew I wanted to make one. The difference between you and I is……..you actually made one. Then you took it a step further and made another. Lol. They are cute Kare. Maybe I’ll get to one soon.

  2. modest and proud . .the best way to be! 🙂 love them . .my daughter would go gaga over the little animal clutch – too cute!

  3. I love the adorable telephone print on the second clutch! It is just so cute. I wish the little bags I jury rigged up for my first project came out as charming as yours. 🙂 This tutorial is definitely getting pegged for me to have a go at it soon!

  4. Awesome job. I love the fabrics you used. T-Mobile. America’s First Nationwide 4G Network

  8. You did a great job! Fun and vintage fabrics are always appealing. I bet you could sell these on your ETSY page. 🙂

  9. Hi! Before I purchase this pattern…is this an easy pattern to follow? I have a VERY BASIC knowledge of sewing, and I do mean very basic. I just know the beginner type stuff…
