The Captivating Clutch bag can be made in two sizes - the Starlet Clutch and the Leading Lady Oversized Clutch. This cleverly constructed clutch bag is packed with pockets and perfect for playing around with different fabrics and textures. Glitz it up for a glam, elegant evening purse or pair bright solids with funky patterns for an everyday bag.

The Starlet Clutch: Although small, this petite purse is packed with pockets - enough to hold everything you'll need for a day out and about or for a night out on the town. Use glitzy fabrics to glam up this compact clutch for an elegant evening bag, or go wild with bright solids, contrasting colours, and fun patterns. The helpful section diagram within the pattern will help you figure out where to use your fabrics.

The Leading Lady Oversized Clutch: Large enough to carry a tablet or e-reader with plenty of room to keep your things organised, this functional bag pattern has instructions on adding an optional strap to turn the clutch into a shoulder bag or cross body messenger bag, making it a perfect choice for work, school or travel. Why not make one for every member of your family? There's also a free tutorial for an alternative style flap for the Leading Lady.

Skill level:
Although it was originally designed as a beginner sewing pattern, The Captivating Clutch is classified as an intermediate pattern as it does require focus. If you follow the pattern instructions step by step you'll have a Captivating Clutch in no time.
