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 two?)  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.  Interfacing/interlining is not required-yay!  However when you get your frames, its worth checking to see if there are gaps in-between the frame and the case. If you prefer your finished clutch without the gap you can experiment by adding some Medium loft iron-on fleece to the fabric, then attach the fabric to the case in the usual way.
