CLMQG Holiday Gift Workshop...Clutches!

Shelley has posted a supply list on the CLMQG blog and on Facebook. We must have a confirmed number of attendees who would like to participate in the clutch demo by October 1st. An order will be placed for the frame handles in advance and to ensure you receive one, please RSVP on the MQG site or you can leave a comment here on this blog posting. The cost is only $5 for the frame which can be paid at the time of the class.

Here are the other supplies needed:

The deadline for ordering a handle set is
Wednesday October 1

Supply List:
ONE FQ Non-directional Decorative fabric for outside of clutch. (Cotton may be used)
ONE FQ Cotton fabric for lining.
1/2 yard Heavy weight fusible stabilizer Pellon 808
1/2 yard Fusible fleece Pellon TP971F

Please prep before demo:
Pre-cut your outer clutch fabric and lining to 13″ x 13-1/2″
Pre-cut your fusible stabilizer to 12-7/8 x 13-3/8″. (Your stabilizer should be 1/8″ smaller than your outer clutch fabric)
Pre-cut your fusible fleece to a 13″ x 10″ piece.

Basic supplies:
Sewing machine and standard foot. We will not be sewing 1/4″ seams.
Rotary cutter
Coordinating thread

SewMod will bring additional supplies including iron, transparent tape, mat, glue and your pre-ordered clutch frame.

Don’t forget to bring any embellishments that you might want to ‘bling up‘ your clutch with!

We will be making a clutch that is not pieced. Piecing the clutch results in too many seams to work around. So please, for your first one, bring the supplies stated and prepped before class.
