The Simply Classic Clutch is a designer-inspired clutch that can be used daily or jazzed up for a sophisticated evening event. The quilting is optional, but it definitely gives your finished clutch that high-class look. Inside you will find two credit card slots and a zipper pocket.


Finished Size - 9"W x 6.5"H

Skill Level - Confident Beginner


We recommend using a Simply Classic Clutch Italian Leather Maker's Kit to construct this bag, however, it is not required. Cotton, cotton canvas, faux leather, or genuine leather can be used to construct this clutch. One exterior fabric can be used, or a contrasting fabric can be used for the slip handle.


Waterproof canvas, cotton, linen, or other similar materials of your choice can be used for the interior lining. If using cotton or linen for the lining, the pieces will need to be backed with woven interfacing like SF101, Wovenfuse, or other similar weight interfacing.


Since the clutch is quilted, foam is needed to give it the proper puffy effect. The amount of puff your clutch has is a personal preference; add batting or fleece for a puffier look. The foam and/or fleece should remain outside of your seam allowances.


Materials List

  • 1/4 yard of material for the exterior
  • 1/4 yard of woven foam and/or fleece
  • 1/4 yard of lining material
  • 1/4 yard of woven interfacing for the lining (if using cotton, linen, or other similar fabric)



  • 1 – #5 Zipper cut to 9”
  • 1 – #5 Zipper cut to 7”
  • 4 - 8mm Rivets
  • Edge paint as indicated (optional)


An accompanying YouTube video tutorial will walk you through each step.
