If making the clutch, skip cutting the pieces & steps marked as being for the wristlet option. Sizes: Three sizes are included. Select your size and then cut out the lettered pieces marked with your size. For example, if making the large clutch, select the pieces marked A - Large & B - Large. Seam Allowance: A 3/8" allowance is included in the pattern pieces. You can also use the edge of your presser foot, if the foot is 1/4" - 3/8" wide. The presser foot is an easy & accurate guide to follow. Cut on Fold: Some pieces may need to be placed on a fold when cutting. The pattern pieces are marked place on fold along the side that is on the fold. Square Pieces: These are drawn directly on the fabric using the marking pen/chalk & ruler. Interlining: The instructions are for using two layers of sew-in interfacing as interlining. One layer of cotton canvas, low-loft batting, or fleece can be substituted for the sew-in interfacing B pieces. It is recommended you use the sew-in interfacing A pieces on the flap. Scrap fabric can also be substituted for these, but make sure the color/print of the scraps won't show through your focus fabric or lining.
