Assembly

Pin felt to back side of Outside Panel so that 2 inches overhang the top and the bottom (this overhang will be folded down over the hooks to keep them from falling out). With sewing thread and sewing needle, sew felt to Outside Panel along the side edges.

Next, pin Inner Bands to felt about 2.5 inches from the top and bottom of Clutch. With sewing thread and sewing needle, sew side edges only.

Edging

With RS facing, join Color B with sl st in corner of Outside Panel. Ch 1, 2 sc in corner, sc evenly across to next corner, *3 sc in corner, sc evenly across to next corner; rep from * around. Join with sl st in first sc. Finish off.

Finishing

Fold the 2 inches of felt overhang to the inside of the clutch, then fold the top and bottom edges of the Outside in (as if you are folding a letter). Sew snaps into place to hold the felt shut, or tie with a pretty ribbon.
