Welcome to Day 3 of The Wanderer’s Clutch Sew Along.

This is a big one, so get your sewjo ready. I am so excited to be seeing you all share your clutches in my facebook group as you sew along, be sure to check out what everyone is making and drop them an encouraging comment.

Today we are going to create the back phone pocket, zipper tabs, attach the zipper and piece the whole clutch together!! Grab your Escape Travel Set book and work with me step by step to complete your Wanderer’s Clutch.

                                                                                                                                      How gorgeous is this Wanderer’s Clutch by Les Envies De Charlotte.

Let’s get started.

  1. Create your back pocket as per the instructions. You may like these extra steps below, kindly provided by Susie from Twirl Girl Boutique on how to add a phone safety strap to your back pocket. Susie has made this one with raw leather, however the same could be made with cork also.
  2. To add the phone safety strap: Add a magnetic snap to the centre of the exterior piece of the back pocket. Cut two pieces of leather(or cork) 1 1/4″ Wide x 5″ Length, attach the other side of the magnetic snap to one of the leather strips. Place the strips wrong sides together and stitch. Join the magnetic snaps together and stitch the raw edge to hold ihn place, snip off excess leather and continue to create your clutch as per the pattern instructions.
