I am serving as a Young Woman leader in our ward at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.
We made these clutches for the Young Women ages 12-18, to hold their books, important papers and a pen and a highlighter.
We made them out of a placemat.
These are the measurements, you fold up the bottom half of the placemat 4 l/2" and then stitch in vertical lines.
It's difficult to see, but the lines are all stitched, and the ribbon is sewn on.
These are the books we added in the pockets, although you could add any books.
One of the leaders is going to make one for her Cub Scout, because he has books that will fit in the different pockets.
I am going to buy some scripture or value cards to insert into the 4" pocket on the right.
It's a tri fold clutch that is perfect to grab and take with you to any meeting.
All your books are in one little clutch.
We made about 25 of them and will be adding some candy canes tied into the ribbons :)
