The clean lines of this pintuck clutch from the book “1, 2, 3, Sew” will lend simple sophistication to your wardrobe. Roomy and fully lined, it is both functional and elegant. The magnetic snap closure keeps your belongings secured, while the fold-over style adds an interesting design detail. A technique often seen in tuxedo shirts, the pintuck is basically a knife pleat stitched down, so that the fabric is folded in small folds in the same direction and stitched in place, one fold at a time. This technique will add a crisp, defined look to any project.
You can make a nice evening bag in a washed silk or linen, but if you plan to use lighter-weight fabrics, be sure to add interfacing and provide reinforcement for the magnetic fastener.
1 yd/1 m twill,
Heavy-weight fusible interfacing or patch,
¾"/2-cm magnetic fastener,
Seam allowance: ½"/12 mm.
NOTE: This bag will be self-lined, so all of the outer and lining pieces will be cut from the same fabric. A
fusible patch is helpful to use for reinforcement behind the magnetic fastener, but a small piece of heavyweight fusible interfacing will work as well.
