I present to you a master class on sewing a clutch bag made from homemade colored felt. I really liked the fabric with the painting “Khokhloma” on a blue background. Perfectly fit for an image with a denim dress, skirt or trousers! You, of course, can choose any fabric at your discretion. Clutch size: 22 * 28 * 4 cm.
For work we need:
– monophonic hard felt 1-2 mm;
– cloth chintz;
– double-sided adhesive web;
– bag accessories (3 carabiners, 3 half rings) at your discretion;
– thread (first wanted to sew in a tone, but in the process decided to take contrast – yellow).
Homemade colored felt is very budgetary compared to the factory one. You can take any fabric (chintz, coarse calico, thin knitwear) and just paste on a plain monophonic felt. Take a piece of felt, cut out the same piece of spider web and a slightly larger piece of cloth. We make a three-layer “cake” and iron it with a heated iron (on a steam with steam) on the entire surface.
We are waiting for it to cool down! Cut the right size!
From a monophonic and color felt we cut out a rectangle 30 * 28 cm, a strip of monochromatic 35 * 2.5 cm (depending on the width of the carbine), a rectangle of 8 * 6 cm from the fabric (you can also cut out a strip of 6 * 2.5 cm from the color felt ), A strap for a webbing made of cloth 130 * 2 cm. And two more rectangles for fixing half-rings 4 * 2 cm.
On one edge of the colored felt, we put a decorative stitch.
We put a strip in the middle of the colored felt, not forgetting to install a carbine on the end. To a monophonic felt, a colored strip (after having folded the fabric to the desired size and setting the semi circle).
To any of the sides, we sew ready fixatives for half rings at a distance of 18 cm from the bottom. Immediately sew a strap width of 2 cm, and do not forget to install the loops and carabiners on both sides.
Combine the slices face-in and stitch along the perimeter from three sides.
From the bottom, sewing a line of 4 cm, cut off an extra corner.
We turn out, steal the seams, attach the strap, and voila! Bag-clutch in the Slavic style is ready. Wear it with pleasure! Experiment with the color felt!
