Learn a quick and easy way to line a clutch and insert a zipper. The clutch can be knitted, crocheted or sewn. If you don’t have time to make one then take an old block, fold in half and seam the sides. We will be hand sewing unless you bring a sewing machine. Supplies: scissors, lining fabric (uncut), sewing needle, thread to match zipper, zipper should be longer than your clutch, straight pins or clips, ruler, and thimble (optional). I have zippers, but they are white. I will bring an iron and cutting mat.
