Babushka Clutch pattern from Spotlight
When my niece turned 11, Miss G wanted me to make her a little bag from a pattern that we picked up at Spotlight. It is called the Babushka Clutch.
She also picked the material to use as her cousin loves purple. It’s the easiest little clutch to make and you can download the pattern from the website. The pattern needs to be printed at 200%. Instructions are provided.
But this is what you should end up with:
- outer fabric, lining and interfacing for the main part of the pattern
- outer fabric, lining and interfacing for the lower front section
- magnetic closure
I have never made a clutch or used a magnetic closure so this was really fun and a challenge even though the pattern was simple. I had visions of the closure not matching up.
I also added a little handle to this pattern that I cut out as 10 inches in length, 2.5 inches wide and folded it in half after I sewed it together. I used the two fabrics and interfacing for strength.
And as a little something extra, I also made a matching little zipper pouch to be placed inside the bag.
Miss G also wanted one of these for herself and so we have picked up some of the Babushka fabrics that is now available at Spotlight that is shown in the top picture.
So have some fun with this little clutch. There is so much you could do with this. Add a zipper or mobile phone pocket inside or you could make the closure a zipper instead of a magnet which is what I am thinking of doing for Miss G.
Would love to see what you come up with!
