The Peek-A-Boo Clutch by Emkie Designs has been on my wishlist for some time but it took a little longer for me to get around to sewing it than I would have liked. And now after sewing it I am kicking myself for not trying it sooner.
About the Pattern:
For those who haven’t seen this pattern you get two clutch styles to make in the one pattern so it’s definitely value for money. Style 1 has large grommet style handles and a tab closure that holds the clutch folded in position. The clutch can also be carried unfolded by the handles. Style 2 is an elegant larger clutch bag with a small oval grommet and a tab closure. Both clutches have plenty of room and are a generous size clutch for you to fit all your necessities in.
Style 1 includes adding a zip pocket and slip pocket and is an optional extra for Style 2 plus your choice of fabrics including vinyl or cotton on the exterior.
I usually buy my own hardware separately for bags however this time I thought I would try the Handbag Hardware Australia and buy the Peek-a-Boo Clutch hardware kits. Well I loved it…so easy and had the hardware all wrapped up ready to go. Such an easy and stress free way to buy your hardware.
My Tips on Sewing the Peek-a-Boo Clutch:
- I got a little confused in the cutting so just for my benefit: for Style 1 the Style 1 & 2 pattern piece is used. For Style 2 the FRONT PIECE is the Style 2 only pattern piece and the BACK PIECE is the Style 1 & 2 pattern piece you used in Style 1.
And these are all my tips for the Peek-a-Boo Clutch because this is one of the best patterns I have come across for the instructions, photos and wording in the tutorial. This is also a quick sew (for both styles) so by the time I got my notebook out to write down notes I was finished sewing the pattern. It actually caught me by surprise how quickly it came together.
So…I will have to bombard you instead with the photos of my finished two styles:
