Necessary Clutch Wallet # 4

I finished this wallet a couple of days ago and am struggling to sew, blog, reply to emails, cook, clean, shop you all know the routine.

Anyway I took a few minutes to take some photos of my fourth Necessary Clutch Wallet by Janelle of Emmaline Bags. I love this wallet and am already planning on making loads more. Did you know they even have a Facebook group for this wallet. Great bunch of ladies on there who are so helpful and offer so many tips. They are even holding a NCW sew-along in August so I can't wait to join in.

Certain colours are so difficult to photograph and this blue is one of them. It came out slightly lighter in the photos.

This wallet is quite large and holds a number of things like cell phone, money for fabric of course LOLLL, loads of cards a lipstick and someone even mentioned it will hold a passport so would be ideal for traveling especially as Janelle has a tutorial on her blog on how to add a wrist strap or shoulder strap.

You can buy the pattern from HERE and you will also find the link to the strap tutorial there too. Janelle's patterns are really great to follow. Good instructions, photos and illustrations.

By the way what do you think of my new watermark. I can't decide between this one or my old one? I may play around with some more and see what I come up with.

Happy Sewing

  1. Hi Maria,

  2. It's beautiful! I have sewn some of these wallets and I know is addictive. That fabric is great! Is it home dec weight? The blue looks nice.

  3. I love this pattern and I love your fabrics, they are lovely. I've made two of them and I'm preparing the third is additive LOLLLL
    I understand perfectly about your time, Can we buy time somewhere??? because I need a lot of more LOLLLL

  4. Lovely wallet! It does look like a good pattern, it looks so professional

  6. It's so perfect!! With all these details!!

  7. This clutch is quite beautiful and I like the colors! This mix of blue, black and beige is so versatile. It must be a good pair to jeans and a chic outfit alike. But it must take quite some time to assemble and sew, though, with all those pockets...

  8. Oups... there was an "error message" right after I clicked on the publish button, so I writing my comment again. (It may appear as a duplicate.)
    What I wrote is that this bag is very beautiful! I love its colors. The mix of blue, black and beige is so versatile. It must pairs well with jeans and a chic outfit alike. But it must takes quite some time to assemble and sew, though, with all those pockets...
    As for the watermark... I like both. I find this new one elegant but the previous one is, I think, more easily read (for everyone).

  9. Great wallet love the blue and black colors.. Thank you for sharing where you got the pattern. On my to do list.

  10. Very pretty - I do love a good wallet! Thanks for the details.

  11. This looks amazing, what a great bag. It looks like a lot of work, but SO worth it.

    1. Thanks Julia. It's not as difficult or time consuming as it looks. Janelle's patterns are well written with photos and illustrations and you'll find that once you've made one you'll want to make more so they come together pretty quickly after the first.
