Somehow, the pattern received a great response in the few weeks leading up to this year’s Lunar New Year celebrations, so to thank my readers, I had decided to showcase some of their works in a Lunar New Year post.
Unfortunately, life got in the way and the Lunar New Year post became a Chap Goh Mei post (15th Day of Lunar New Year celebrations) instead ;P
Without further ado, please take a look at the wonderful clutches made by my readers this Lunar New Year!
I hope you had fun making them and received a lot of joy this festive season ❤
So, if you read my last post, I had made a PDF pattern for an Ang Pao Clutch. In this post, I’ll write a tutorial which will hopefully lead you step-by-step in creating your own clutch.
This tutorial was inspired partly by this Taiwanese tutorial on Youtube. However, I found the last part where you have to turn the entire lining inside out very difficult to do and would often cause the opening to stretch out and distort the shape of the flap cover.
I hoped to minimize the need for turning things inside out in my tutorial; however, it involves a few more steps. Because of this, I would consider it an advanced beginner pattern. Nonetheless, beginner sewists are more than welcome to try if you are up for a challenge!
