DIY Step-By-Step Foldover Clutch

Europe and the United States super popular folded handbag, the usual style only a large pocket. Here I added a pocket and zipper pocket to the front and back of the bag, so that there is a place to put your wallet, change and cell phone~~.


1. 25 cm side length of the surface of the fabric and lining each 2 pieces, the best use of cotton and linen, canvas or PU leather to do the surface of the fabric, this kind of fabric is thicker and more solid, you do not need to add another lining.

2. 2 magnets

3. 2 zippers, cut one of them into 23cm long, and seal both ends with a cloth head.

4. 25cm of decorative lace

5. a small strip of leather, about 1cm wide, for the small loop of the bag strap (can be replaced by a strip of cloth).

6. one piece of back zipper pocket fabric: 18cm wide x 20cm long. 7. one piece of front patch fabric 23cm long x 25cm wide.

7. front patch pocket fabric 23cm long x 25cm wide, half of this will be folded inside so I used lining and surface fabric to piece it together. You can use a whole piece of tablecloth for this, or if piecing with lining fabric as I did, you can piece it and then trim it to the desired size:

Making the back zipper pocket of the bag

1. First, take a piece of fabric and sew a decorative lace about 5.5cm from the top edge; fold a small strip of leather over the right edge at 1/2 height, slightly off-set, and sew it in place.

2. Draw a box for the zipper about 10cm up from the bottom edge, the height of the box is about 1cm and the distance from the sides is about 5cm:

3. Draw a box of the same size on the back of the zippered pocket cloth, with the top edge of the box about 2 cm from the edge. Then lay the pocket cloth on top of the table cloth so that the two boxes overlap and position them with a bead pin. Then sew a circle along the line of the box, and then cut the inside of the box into a ">----<" shape, taking care that the cut against the corner of the box does not cut the stitching:

4. Tuck the pocket cloth through the middle of the cutout and turn it out the back to smooth the edges of the zipper box with an iron:

5. Position the zipper on the back of the box:

6. Attach a one-sided presser foot for sewing zippers to the sewing machine and sew the zipper along the edge of the box:

7. Fold the zipper pocket fabric up and sew the two layers of pocket fabric together along the edges:

Making the front pocket of the bag

1. Install the magnetic closure to another piece of table cloth and the front pocket cloth with the size marked in the picture below. Note that in order to increase the firmness of the magnetic closure, you should add a piece of rigid adhesive lining at the back of the cloth magnetic closure position, which I forgot to take a picture of the PP here:

2. Fold the patch pocket in half and fasten it to the surface cloth with a thin seam, not more than 0.5 cm from the edge of the thin seam line:

Installing the pocket zipper

1. Lay the zipper face down on top of the tablecloth to align the edges as shown below, then lay a layer of lining fabric on top of it, with the lining fabric face down and three layers aligned to the edges:

2. Sew the zipper and 2 layers of fabric fabric with the one side presser foot of the sewing machine:

3. After installing one side of the zipper, separate the surface fabric and the lining fabric toward each side, and then press the thread on the lining fabric side:

4. Then repeat steps 1~3 to sew the other side of the zipper and the remaining two pieces of table lining fabric:

Sewing the body of the bag

1. Align the surface fabric with the surface fabric and the lining fabric with the lining fabric:

2. Pay special attention to aligning the seams of the center table with the lining fabric, which is best secured with a bead pin:

3. Sew around the bag, leaving the return on the bottom edge of the lining, trim the 4 corners, then turn the bag over to the front and sew the return to the lining:

4. Tuck the lining inside, iron

Of course, you'll also need a carry strap for the bag, the kind that goes over the lobster clasp, over the top of the leather loop on the side of the bag, and you'll be ready to carry it out the door:
