The Encore Clutch is a curvy, pleated clutch with a zippered top and wristlet strap. The pleats allow for plenty of space inside without making the pouch seem obviously large. With three sizes and a piping/faux piping option to accent a center feature panel, you’ll be sure to find the perfect combination. The large size has card slots in front of a pocket that fits dollar bills or an iPhone 6. The medium size features card slots in front of a smaller patch pocket. The small size has a single card pocket. Measurements are provided for any size hardware, and the bag is suitable for quilting cotton or home dec fabric.

Classy Wristlet!

This is a great wristlet. I have done many of Erin's patterns, the original wristlet included. I still love that one, but this one is unique. It has that special feature fabric used in the middle that really gives it a classy look. I made the large size and did a black overall fabric with a black and white floral feature fabric in the middle to give it a classier look. the way the bottom corners are done give it much more room inside. This size would be perfect for an evening out when you don't want to carry much. It was so easy to follow. I didn't know I could do piping, and Erin's instructions made me realize that now I can! Great pattern, and I will be making many more!
