Floral and Vinyl Fold Over Clutch DIY

Remember all those clutches/pouches I made last week? Here are the instructions to make the large one! You can easily adjust the measurements to make different sizes. Hope you enjoy!

What I used:
Floral tapestry fabric
Quilters cotton
Zipper (I used what I had: 12'')
Fleece interfacing
Boat Vinyl
Leather sewing needle
Zipper Foot
Sewing machine 
Basic sewing supplies

1. Cut two square pieces of tapestry fabric (10.5x10.5) and two pieces of interfacing to match. 
2. Cut a vinyl square (10.5) and cut it in half, leaving you with two pieces (5.25).
3. Cut two rectangles from your quilters cotton (10.5x15.5). 

4. Place your tapestry fabric and vinyl right sides together (interfacing in place on the wrong side) and sew together at the bottom.

5. Make sure everything is facing the right way (you're looking at the pretty side of the fabric and the vinyl). Now, force the seam you made in step 4 to lay flat and sew across. 

6. Fold your lining fabric over (right to right side) and fold your tapestry fabric over (wrong to wrong) about a quarter inch. 

7. Place the fabric wrong sides together and make them even on the zipper. Make sure that both fabrics on the same side of your zipper. Once your fabric is even, pin and sew. Do the same for the other side.

8. Open the zipper about half way. Fold everything over so the tapestry fabric is on the inside and you are looking at your lining. Sew all the way around. You can finish the edges with a zig-zag stitch or a serger if you like.

9. Turn everything inside right and you are done!

If you have any questions let me know, and if you make one I would love to see it!
