Welcome to day 1 of The Wanderer’s Clutch Sew Along!! Over the next 5 days I will be sharing with you tips and tricks on sewing a Wanderer’s Clutch.

Before we kick off, I want to say a massive thankyou to each and every one of you who has purchased my book. The feedback I have received is just mind blowing, and the fact that my Australian designed and printed book is now all over the world in numbers I never imagined is just so humbling. Thankyou for helping make a long term dream of mine a reality, it means the world to me! I am so darn excited I am planning another one for sometime in the future!

I just love sewing these clutches up. (You should know by now I am obsessed with clutch making!!). They are a perfect way to use up smaller pieces of fabric and the end product is such a great size. I have made a number of these for gifts and people just love them. I can’t wait to see what you create as we travel along the next 5 days.

Grab your copy of my book, The Escape Travel Set and let’s get started!! If you don’t have a copy of the book, you can purchase one from my website now. (The Wanderer’s Clutch pattern is not available as a PDF).

Turn to page 10 of your book, cut and interface all pieces required.

  1. Watch this youtube video on how to add piping to the flap piece and how to add a magnetic snap.

You might like to join my facebook group to see everyone else’s creations as they join in the sew along.

I love how piping makes the fabric pop on the flap piece of the Wanderer’s Clutch. This sweet panda version by Little Seren is just adorable.
