Sewing: Oversized Envelope Clutch

Monday, January 16, 2012

I'm a huge fan of three things; color blocking, stripes, and triangles.  This is my attempt to incorporate all three things into an oversized envelope clutch.  I wanted to make an oversized clutch to accommodate my iPad along with a few other essentials (phone, keys, wallet, lip gloss).  You will also see this style clutch in my etsy shop once it's opened : )

I love this style clutch because it's extremely versatile and very fun to make I might add!  Here are a few ideas that I have for the Envelope clutch:
  • Add interior pockets
  • Work with leather/Suede
  • Mix leather and cotton for a day to night look
  • Screen printing/block printing
  • Use feminine & flirty fabrics
  • Color Blocking
What are some key things you look for in a clutch?


  1. Tori, I'm loving the color blocks, stripes, and mixing of fabrics. Ive been looking for a cute iPad case too, and these sounds just beautiful! I can't wait to see what combinations of all these design elements you come up with! I am saving my money until you do :)

  2. Love these, Tori! Especially the striped one because I'm addicted to stripes ;) I also like how you styled them for the photo. For a clutch, I would definitely like interior pockets. Oh, and what about a removable, cross-body strap? That could be a fun way to take it from day to night.

  3. I really like the blue stripes..OPEN, OPEN :) I always like pockets: one for cell phone and one for other stuff. But I am not too picky.

  4. Oh these are just gorgeous Tori.

  5. sooo lovely! i especially love the stripes! best of luck prepping for your shop--you'll be amazing!
