I made two cork clutch bags following the Craftsy Class Mix & Match Clutch Bag Techniques.  In this class, Jannelle MacKay from Emmaline Bags teaches how to sew a basic clutch.  The class includes templates for different flaps and body front styles to create clutches in many different styles.

It was my first experience sewing with cork and the first project in my new Sailrite. I hated my Sailrite since I got it but I think that now we are becoming friends. It is not a replacement for the regular machine, but for thick layers of fabric, the sailrite definitively works.

For my first clutch I chose the pointed flap and Trapezoid Front Body. I combined Pollock Cork with waterproof canvas and added gold edge trim and chain strap.

In the class, you’ll learn how to adjust the flap to fit any edge trip. The fit was not perfect in my first clutch, but I nailed it in the second one (scroll down for pictures).

Pattern: Templates from the Craftsy Class Mix & Match Clutch Bag Techniques

Hardware: Edge Trim and gold chain from 3DAN Supplies

Cork Clutch Exterior Fabric: Pollock Cork and Waterproof Canvas

Stabilizer: EVA Foam Underlayment

The only changes that I made were (1) turn the bag through the zip pocket and (2) used EVA Foam Underlayment (commonly used for floor installations) in place of foam interfacing.

For the interior I used quilting cotton (remnants that I had from my Harriett bag and Passport Wallet)

The class include instructions in how to sew card slots, a lipstick pocket, and an interior zippered pocket with enclosed zipper.

For my second clutch I chose the pointed flap and the pieced front.  I combined black and silver cork with waterproof canvas and added a silver edge trim and chain strap.

For the interior I used red satin fabric.  I like the pop of color!

I also made the card slots, lipstick pocket, and interior zippered pocket.

I highly recommend Mix & Match Clutch Bag Techniques. It is suitable for beginners.

I love these clutches and the class templates.

    Makes a really good fold over clutch bag, with optional shoulder strap, pockets, card slots etc.

    I recently started sewing with cork, and I found it to be quite addictive, so I wa.”, “These quick box pouches feature a unique twist on the classic – two zippers at the top, each with its own separate storage space.
