April from Forshee Designs was nice enough to allow me to test her pattern for her coupon file clutch. She released the PDF pattern awhile ago but I still wanted to post about it. The pattern directions are very clear and easy to follow. She has also included pictures for anyone that is more of a visual learner.
I don’t really coupon so I don’t need this as a coupon clutch. Instead, Lillian has taken it over as a marker case. It fits them perfectly and is definitely cuter than some of the cases that you can buy. You could also use this as a small purse or even a makeup bag. So even though it’s called a coupon clutch it does not have to be used as one.
When sewing this, I messed up sewing the hook and loop tape on. I did not know that you are actually supposed to keep all stitching on the hook and loop tape and none on the fabric. When I sewed it, the fabric pulled in, so the flap was a little smaller than it was supposed to be. When it’s closed it kind of makes the edges look a little different than it should (hence the top sticking out so much in the picture).
