  • Skein of DMC® Pearl Cotton, Red 321
  • Fat Quarter of fabric for lining
  • 1/2 yard of non-fusible heavy weight interfacing
  • Magnetic snap
  • Embroidery needle
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Sheet of sewing tracing paper
  • Pen
  • Sewing machine
  • Thread (to match the cork)

    It is recommended that a pressing cloth be used any time the iron touches the cork.



  2.  
  3. To print the template, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
  4. Using the template, cut one flap from the stitchable cork. Using the pen and tracing paper, transfer the heart image to the right side of the cut flap piece in the spot indicated on the pattern.
  5. Place the cork into an embroidery hoop so the marked heart can be seen. Stitch the heart using the Pearl Cotton thread and a simple satin stitch. Then remove from hoop.
  6. Pin the embroidered flap piece to the second 10" x 10" piece of stitchable cork, right sides facing. The 10" straight side of the flap piece should be pinned to one of the 10" sides of the square cork piece.
  7. Stitch in place & press seam open.
  8. Using this sewn piece as a template, cut a piece of lining fabric the same size as the sewn cork pieces.
  9. To create the clutch, pin the sewn cork pieces right sides facing to the lining fabric. Stitch around 3 sides of the clutch. Leave the 10" flat side of the clutch open. Be sure to back stitch.
  10. Clip the sewn corners, turn the clutch piece right side out. Press.
  11. Using the sewn clutch piece as a guide, trace the clutch shape onto a piece of heavyweight interfacing. Cut out the interfacing 1/8" inside the line that was traced. The interfacing piece should be slightly smaller than the clutch piece.
  12. On the flat 10" end of the interfacing, cut off 1/2" of interfacing.
  13. Slip the interfacing into the clutch, pin in place to temporarily secure.
  14. On the lining side of the clutch flap, place a mark where the magnetic snap will go (it is recommended the snap be placed behind the heart). Place one half of the magnetic snap, according to the package directions. The snap should feed through the interfacing and the lining fabric, but NOT the cork.
  15. Fold the bottom part of the clutch up and the flap part of the clutch down and mark where the other half of the magnetic snap should hit on the clutch.
  16. Place the other half of the magnetic snap on the clutch in the marked spot. This time the snap should go through the cork and the interfacing, but not the lining fabric.
  17. Fold the fabric and the cork of the 10" flat side of the clutch under to enclose the raw edges. Pin in place. Using a sewing machine, top stitch the 10" flat side of the clutch, catching the folded fabric along the way.
  18. Fold the clutch so that the magnetic snap is snapped. Pin the two sides of the clutch. Unsnap the clutch, but leave the pins in place. Stitch the two sides of the clutch 1/4" in from the edge of the clutch. Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of the stitching lines.
