This rectangular minaudière is clean, classic and the easiest shape to work with.  Fix yourself up one of these beauties in well under an hour.

Pattern shape is a landscape rectangle. You will need: 2 pieces of  9in (W) X 6in (H) of each fabric for exterior and lining, and this glue.

Includes chain loops

Measures 6 1/2' (W) x 3 1/8" (H)

Here is the purse frame that you need to make those super-glam hard sided cocktail clutches.  When these clutches are covered in your choice of fabrics they look unbelievably professional, but at the same time they are incredibly easy to make (you can easily make one in under an hour)  For a sweet daytime look choose daytime friendly fabrics (and whilst you're at it why not embellish with some crochet lace and add a fabric flower or 2?)  For night time drama use deep coloured silks or satins, pop a big cocktail ring on your finger and look the business at your party!  The frame has chain loops to which you can add a hand or shoulder chain if desired.

I recommend using fabrics that are no thicker than quilt weight cotton (no interfacing or interlining is needed-yay!)

When you get your frames, its worth checking to see if there are gaps in-between the frame and the case. If you don't like the gap you can experiment with using some Medium loft iron-on fleece on the fabric. Then put the fabric on the case as usual.
