Heidi Clutch from Swoon Pattern

I have this pretty shibori rayon cotton which I really love. I thought it will be great to make fold over clutch. Then Namrata suggested I try Heidi - the free pattern from Swoon Patterns, when I saw the pattern, I know this will be perfect project for the shibori.

 The problem is I don’t use Vinyl or leather. So after scanning my stash, I thought this raw silk in coffee brown will be perfect combo.



I marked 3/8” from the top of the accented panel piece and clipped along the curvy edge. And slowly ironed the seam in and pinned it to the main exterior fabric and top stitch with 1/8” inch seam allowance.
And I loved how this turned out.

I used metal zipper for both top and exterior pocket. I added fabric tab for both top and pocket zipper so that the metal teeth won’t get in the way. Frankly, metal zipper still scare me 0_0



Attaching zipper in the curvy top was quite easy. Just make sure you mark the middle of the zipper and the fabric and start pinning from the middle. I like to attach the zipper to the lining first and then to the exterior fabric. 




For some people maybe attaching zipper this way is too much of work, but I personally feel this will give more security since the zipper will be used a lot.



That’s quite a fast project to do and know I will make more ^__^.

And as I was taking photos for my fabric shop, ideas keep brewing in my head. So, look forward for more Indigos and blues.
