This is a PDF sewing pattern for The Chattisham Clutch Bag, a versatile design in an understated 1940s style that can be made with either a wrist strap or a simple long strap. Ideally made in two or more contrasting fabrics, the Chattisham Clutch Bag is a sensible size for day wear but also makes up well in fancy fabrics for evening wear. It has a pieced front and a decorative tab on the flap. The pattern also contains instructions for an interior patch pocket.

The bag’s finished dimensions are: Height 9” (23cm) and width 14” (36cm). Long strap length is 38” (96cm) and wrist strap is 6.5” (17cm).

This PDF has 17 pages—10 pages including the cover, general, cutting out and step-by-step instructions, and 7 pattern sheets with the templates, which you must print and cut out. All of the templates are actual size. As two of the templates are too big to fit on one sheet, you must cut out and tape these templates together where shown. Instructions for this are clear.

You will need:

½ yard (50cm) of 54” (138cm) wide, or 2/3 yard (60cm) of 44” (112cm) wide exterior fabric
Piece of contrast fabric 14” (36cm) by 30” (76cm)
2/3 yard (60cm) of 44” (112cm) or 36” (92cm) wide lining fabric

1/3 yard (30cm) of 36” (92cm) wide fusible interfacing
1 magnetic snap set
