Stacked Ribbon Clutch Tutorial~

1)  Lay the ribbon on top of the 6″ X 6″ fabric -right sides facing up.

2)  Play with the arrangement of the ribbon- don’t place ribbons at the ends, you will be sewing along this edge and don’t want the extra bulk

3)  Glue the ribbons in place.  If you don’t want them floppy or to catch on anything, you can sew them down or use fusible to secure.  Quick tutorial on how to do this here: make fusible ribbon.

4)  Sew the ribbons to secure along the edges

*if you’d like to use the swivel clip- Cut a piece of ribbon 4″ long X width of ribbon.  Slip clip in the ribbon and pin right sides out to one side of the bag {pin to the right side of the bag outside piece}

10)  Pin together the right sides of the lining

11)  Sew the sides and bottom of the lining
