Bend and Snap Clutch
by Linds Handmade Patterns
With this purchase, you will receive a paper copy of this pattern sent to you in the mail with detailed pictures and step by step instructions on how to make your own Bend and Snap clutch. It includes full pattern pieces and will come in a resealable plastic bag with a vent hole and convenient hanging hole. A cut list has also been provided.
This pattern is designed to be used with any self-healing textile such as cork, leather, vinyl etc as some edges are left raw on the interior portion of the bag. You may use fabric for the exterior in order to show off a feature fabric but Do NOT try making the whole thing with cotton fabric!
This is an intermediate pattern in that it uses advanced bag making techniques that require the sewer to have a general familiarity with bag making. This is not recommended for someone brand new to sewing. You should be comfortable using a quilting ruler and rotary cutter or sharp knife (ie box cutter or X-acto knife) for cutting straight lines.
