Flappy Friday Freebie

Back in the saddle –

New free flap shape for the Flip Clutch Wallet.instablog

Fashion dictates – and what better than to update the The Flip Clutch Wallet with a bang on trend saddle shaped flap.

I’ve made these in faux leather, but you can make in quilting cottons, cork, wool, leather, in fact virtually anything, just like the original.

If you already have the pattern for The Flip Clutch Wallet, all you need to do is print the 2 new PDF sheets below and exchange them for pattern pieces D and F (The flap outer and interfacing) in your original pattern

Everything makes up exactly the same, just follow the pattern instructions as normal – and place the magnetic clasp in it’s new position on the flap as shown on the new pattern piece. (If you are using leather or faux, I reduced the weight of the flap interfacing to Decovil Light or similar)

If you would like to really go wild with the Dior look, you could give your wallet a stirrup too.stirrupblog

Simply cut a strip of leather (or faux) 3/4″x 6″ – thread a 3/4″ D-ring onto the middle of the leather strip and fold in half, tack in place at the top, close to the raw edges.strap

When you place the flap pieces right sides together ready to sew, slip the little strap between the two flap pieces centrally on the curved edge, parallel to the flap sides, as shown here – you can use a bit of sticky tape to hold it in place, then just carry on as normal. When you turn the flap through your little stirrup will pop right out!flap
