M had described these closet clutches to me as she had seen it somewhere else. She thought they could be used for holding a sachet or jewelry or for hiding money or the family jewels. (Ideally, none of my readers are into burglary, since I've just given away a big secret). Honestly, this seems like a strange thing to me and like the angels, I wonder who will buy these? But, as the wise Preacher said, I don't have to sell them - just make them. M was really happy with them, so maybe she'll have no problem selling them.
The construction is really pretty simple. There is an outer piece with something decorative on the front, a lining/inside piece with a pocket attached. The pocket is divided into two (or three on the first one) with a line of stitching.
Two ribbons are stitched on where the top flap folds over. This keeps the clutch on the hanger when the clutch is opened and still hanging up.
I fused heavyweight interfacing to the lining piece. Two pieces of velcro keep the clutches closed.
