For the Eve Clutch you will need:

Small amount - 40cm X 11cm (16"X 4½") of Satin for the Flap Inset (optional). (You can use your Lining Fabric if you like!)
Fusible Woven Interfacing: Mid weight - 120cm (approx. 48"). I used Pellon SF101 Shape-Flex (which is approx. 20"wide.)

Matching Thread. (I use Guttermann Polyester).
1 X 18mm (¾") Regular Magnetic Snap.
1 X 23cm (9") Zipper to match your lining for the divider pocket.
1 X 18cm (7") Zipper to match your lining for the coin pocket.

Fading marker or chalk.
Pins, tape measure & Seam/stitch ripper. (Just in case!)
Fabric & Construction Suggestions: For the Clutch in the cover photo, I used a Brocade Exterior and Satin for the Lining and Inset. However this clutch makes
up great in a lot of fabric types such as silks and quilting cottons.
I found that interfacing was necessary on the lining when using the satin however for fabrics such as quilting cottons, you
may choose to use less interfacing in your pocket construction and still achieve good results. In fact it will be easier on
your sewing machine if it tends to be stubborn at times!
The Inset is optional so make it fancy or make it plain!
