To make the clutch:
Step one: Cut lining into a 12″ x 22″ rectangle. Cut 2 11″ x 21″ rectangles of fusible interfacing and iron to wrong sides of lining and dyed fabrics.
Step two: Sandwich lining fabric and dyed fabric together so that right sides are together (fusible interfacings will be facing out. Make sure edges of fabric match up. Sew short sides with a 3/4″ seam allowance.
Step three: Fold down seam allowance of lining and iron (see photo). Repeat on other side with dyed fabric. Turn fabrics right side out and press sewn sides.
Step four: Use a pencil to mark 1″ down from short side of fabric and 6″ in from the long side. Attach one side of magnetic purse closure according to instructions on fabric. (Cut slits through lining, slide prongs into slits, bend prongs outward). Make sure to only cut slits and attach closure through the lining layer. Repeat on other short side of fabric with other part of magnetic closure.
Step 5: Fold fabric in half horizontally / hamburger style. Lining should be on the outside and dyed fabric should be on the inside. Sew up each long side with a 3/4″ seam allowance. Trim seam allowances to 1/4″. Turn right side out. You’re done!
