Angled Zip Clutch and The Sewing Summit

I am ridiculously excited to be sharing another free pattern with you today!! Nothing makes me happier than sharing something fun! This little clutch is just adorable. A little fun, a little sassy, super useful, and so very versatile!

It is such a quick sew, I can’t even believe it. Plus, the scrap busting options are endless. This could be really cute patchwork quilted to use even the tiniest of scraps! And most of us keep the supplies needed on hand. A zipper, some interfacing, and a bit of woven fabric. Boom and done!!

Now, the zipper is a bit longer than the ones I typically keep on hand (I buy 8″ zippers in bulk), but not so long that it will be hard to get your hands on. I really wanted to be able to get my phone in and out easily and still have room for whatever I want to carry. I made these versions out of quilting cottons, but this would be so fun and easy out of all kinds of woven fabrics. Accents in faux leather would be lovely, some great outdoor fabrics, suede. Endless options!!

I did my best to make these pattern pieces easy to make, while still having some unique features, so you should be able to trace and cut everything out of regular US computer paper, no glue needed, if you prefer to make pattern pieces, rather than cut fabric directly. This is definitely my preference if I’m planning to make more than one of anything. Measurements are quick and easy (and I hate gluing paper together), but for repeats, it’s just easier to have the pattern cut and ready to go.

Now I have even better news! I’m doing a sew along to show just how easy this pattern is to make up!! And to show a quick hack, if you’re scared of zippers or just don’t feel like adding one (the navy one with the periodic table lining). Check out The Sewing Summit! It is a week long event with some of the most amazing sewists, designers, and fabric experts sharing their knowledge with you. Free to attend live, or grab the videos forever at a reduced price ahead of the event. However you choose to participate, I’m sure you’ll be able to learn something new and exciting, and meet some new peeps in the sewing community!

Grab this free pattern right here, and be ready to sew it up with me! Don’t forget to tag me if you share anywhere, as I’d love to see your finished product!

Rebecca Page Roxy Wristlet

I’m blogging up a storm over here and couldn’t leave out this little cutie!! Let me just start this one with FREE PATTERN!!! Now I’ll dive into the awesomeness of this little wristlet.

I’m not a huge purse carrier. I adore them. They’re so cute and have so many wonderful features. But I’m apt to leave them somewhere or either swing from carrying a basically empty bag, or one stuffed so full of random stuff that it is rendered useless. More often than not, you’ll see me with either an ID wallet on a keychain, attached to my keys, or a clutch/wristlet of some sort. Something that I hold in my hand and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I can throw it in a larger purse or bag when the occasion calls for it. Super easy.

So this is truly the perfect solution. It is just the right size to carry around in my hand, or throw on my wrist with the handy strap, which is basically what I do with the ID wallets. But this can also hold lip gloss and my phone!! And my keys can go inside!!! WHAT?!

So let’s touch on options real quick. You can add up to six card slots to the inside, which is more than enough for what I carry around from day to day. Then the outside pocket is wonderful for cash or lip gloss or that to do list I always carry with me, then lose. You can leave off the key loop or wrist strap if you want a super basic one to carry about. And it was super easy to put together!!

If you want a quick, FREE pattern, that let’s you carry around the essentials, this is perfect!! Grab your copy here and let me know what you think!!
