How To Make A Makeup Bag or Clutch Purse From Quilted Fabric
1. Make a pattern. I used copier paper and taped it together – one sheet wasn’t quite big enough. This purse pattern is 11″ X 14 1/2″.
Cut the fabric along the outside of your paper pattern.
3. Double-fold the edges of the fabric. Note: the side you are turning it in toward will be the lining of your purse. By double-folding it no rough edges will be exposed.
4. Pin the edges.
5 / 6 Sew all of the edges using your sewing machine.
8. Pin the location where you want to put a button hole. The pins will be a guide to keep your stitching straight. Sew the button hole – using a satin stitch on your sewing machine – and then cut the center open.
