Simplicity 2205

This cute little summer clutch purse was made using Simplicity 2205. Pattern directions call for using fusible interfacing, and also fusible fleece. I did use both, but I'm not thrilled with the fusible fleece. I usually use the fusible interfacing and then sew in canvas-weight fabric for added stability.

There is one interior pocket, perfect for a cell phone or camera:
A band wraps around the clutch, and uses a magnetic snap for closure:

This bag meets my personal size requirements for a clutch, and it was an easy and quick project!
I just might make one or two more :-)!
