The Flip Clutch Wallet Sewing Pattern

So… my latest pattern release is The Flip Clutch Wallet. A lovely spacious ladies wallet and phone case.me purses2

It’s such an easy fun make, and comes together pretty quickly too.

It was also my first foray into cork, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I’ll definitely be using more of it going forward.

It can be made in virtually anything though – quilting cottons, wool, vinyl or leather, and has a wide range of options for endless finishes. It’s such a fun make. Once you have made one, you won’t be able to stop.

It is the perfect accessory for carrying all your essentials: coins, cards and notes. It even has a handy compartment for your phone. A functional and firm wallet with a convenient wrist strap option.

I wanted to design a wallet that was different to any other sewing patterns, obviously we all know and love Emmaline’s Necessary Clutch, it’s probably the best known bag pattern available, so I wanted to make sure my creation was a completely different option.

I first considered what my wallet needed to be for my lifestyle – Obviously I need to carry change, notes and credit cards, but I also often carry more than one currency, as I am often in other parts of Europe. When I grab my wallet to head out to the shops, I don’t always want to carry a handbag, so somewhere to keep my phone safely, without chance of it falling out was a necessity, room for my car keys, and for carrying it, a removable wrist strap

The Flip has a really generous zipped pocket at one side for change and keys, and a phone pocket large enough for an XL phone and maybe a lipstick at the other. The centre panel folds out to reveal 8 credit card slots; each slot being able to hold more than one card. There are also two separate pockets for bank notes behind the credit card slots, which easily fit UK or US/Euro notes – If like me you carry notes in two separate currencies, you can keep them in the two separate note pockets. These are all held securely together with a magnetic clasp.

The generous flap securely fastens with either a magnetic clasp or a twist lock. Pattern pieces are included for both rounded and V-shaped flaps, and I will be issuing new shapes for the flap free here on the blog.
The wrist strap gives you the option to use it as an evening bag.

With a host of alternative options that come free with the pattern for wrist strap application, flap shapes, adding Emmaline Bags Metal Edge Trim and twist lock fastenings.

I must also say thank you to my lovely testers who spotted my daft mistakes and suggested some really worthwhile improvements to the wallet.

Here are a few of my talented tester’s wallets
