This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!

Sara Lawson, April Rhodes and Caroline Hulse designed beautiful new collections for Art Gallery Fabrics! AGF Limited Editions include eight quilting weight prints, plus two of the prints in knit and one in voile. Sara shared her free Brookfield Bag Pattern featuring Jungle Ave. prints, April Rhodes showed How to Sew French Seams with her Arizona collection and today Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline shows you how easy it is to make the free Date Night Clutch pattern! The Date Night Clutch shows off Caroline’s new Gleeful fabrics with style.

Gleeful is happy, bright and feminine; it’s perfect for a Date Night Clutch and it releases in July!

You have a chance at an early fat quarter bundle of Gleeful! Comment below with a favorite Gleeful print, tell us what jumps out at you from the stack or what you’ll make with Gleeful.

This easy-to-sew clutch will be the perfect go-to for your next date night or girl’s night out! It fits your essentials, PLUS it’s easy to sew them up in all your favorite fabrics!

I am so honored to be here sharing a project with my soon-to-be-released fabric line, Gleeful. This fabric line is full of cheerful prints, bright colors and easy to use fabrics. I can’t wait for you to see it in person! Until then, you can see some project I’ve created over here.


  • Printer, paper + tape
  • Date Night Clutch PDF pattern
  • Two 11″ squares of fabric or one fat quarter for the main fabric (pictured here: Cheerful Echo by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery Fabrics)
  • Two 11″ squares of fabric or one fat quarter for the lining fabric (pictured here Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements in Banana Cream)
  • 1/3 yard Shape Flex (Optional)
  • One 10″ x 4″ metal clutch frame (similar here)
  • 527 multi-use glue or B-6000 glue
  • Scissors, coordinating thread, sewing machine
  • Chopstick or some other sort of “poker”

Step One:
Print the PDF pattern, tape it together matching the circle in the center and cut it out.

Step Two:
Using the pattern as a guide, cut two from the main fabric, two from the lining fabric, and (optional) two from Shape Flex interfacing. If you choose to use interfacing, iron it on to the wrong side of your lining fabric at this time. Be sure to either cut out or mark the two notches on the sides.

Step Three:
Starting with the lining, start sewing (using a 3/8″ seam allowance) at one notch and sew to the bottom corner, across the bottom and up to the next notch. Repeat this for the main fabric.

Next, we will box the corners by taking the seam line from the bottom and matching it with the side seam line. This will create a triangular corner that you will then measure down 1″ from the peak. Mark this spot and then mark a line parallel to the point (OR perpendicular to the bottom seam). Sew across this line and repeat for the other corner on the lining fabric and the two corners on the main fabric.

When all your corners are finished, clip them so the seam allowance is 1/4″.

Step Five:
Turn the lining fabric wrong side out and the main fabric right side out, then place the main fabric inside the lining fabric; be sure to match up the side seams. Pin in place starting at the notches and all the way around the top. Sew these in place (using 3/8″ seam allowance). Be sure to leave a 2″ opening across one top for turning. When you’re all sewn up, turn your clutch right side out and press. Pay special attention to pressing the seam allowances.

Step Six:
Top stitch the opening in place and begin to glue to the inside crevice of the metal frame clutch. Add glue to the crevice and use a chopstick or other “poker” device to stuff the edge of your fabric. You’ll want to be sure it is smooth and even. Start on one side, let it dry for about thirty minutes and then move on to the next.

All glues are different, but to be safe let your clutch dry for 24 hours before use.

That’s it! Wasn’t it easy? I can’t wait to see all of the clutches you create!

Happy sewing and thanks for reading! I’d be honored for you to take a peek at my blog or my photos on Instagram!

  1. Pauline says:

    Just stumbled on this now so if the comp has not closed, I would accept any one of them. They are all so beautiful, colourful, bright and cheery, I would not be able to choose.

  2. Cheryl Hovey says:

    OMG!! I want them all!! They are stunning. But,,,,, if I have to pick only one it would be:
    Lively Buds
    I think I would probably make a purse out of it or a beautiful summer dress for my grand daughter.

  3. Linda says:

    I think Preppy Fleurs is my favorite print from this lovely new line.

  4. Kim D. says:

    Adorable bag and I love the Cheerful Echo fabric that’s it’s made in.

  5. Liz says:

    Love all the patterns, but I think Untangled Ribbons is my favorite. Just love those stripes! I would definitely make the clutch. I love bags in all shapes and sizes, and of course colors!

  6. Beth says:

    These fabrics are all so pretty — I love the color palette. Untangled Ribbons is calling my name though. I can’t wait to make the clutch!

  7. Debbie says:

    I like Springs Sun,because it looks festive,and it would pop along side other rich prints.

  8. Susie says:

    Oh this fabric is a delight! I love all of them…. the two that stand out to me are Charms Abloom and Untangled ribbons! What fun!!

  9. Catherine golden says:

    Lovely bag but I have TWO questions.
    1) when you stitch from notch to notch for the TOP seam, do you start sewing exactly where you starting sewing the bottom seam? Then there would be NO gap where there is not a seam at the notch location.
    2.) Where do you start to glue in the bag to the handle. I have always found this part very difficult and especially to match up the sides. Do you start gluing in the middle and work towards the sides? Or another way?

  10. Emily says:

    Caroline, I love your blog and that you made knits! I gotta try your Springs Sun knit.

  11. Barbara Bradford says:

    I have fallen in love with the feel of Spring Breezes and Spring Sun… I am in desperate need of a travel bag this summer, but then saw some of the collection done in knits… great collection

  13. Kathy Kauth says:

  30. Jeanne says:

  32. Laurie says:

    The Lively Buds is SO cute! I would love to mix these prints into some quilts.

  33. Rebecca says:

    Like so many others, I’m going to say “After the Rain” is my favorite. I’m a sucker for the polka dots! So cute!

  34. Heidi G says:

    After the Rain is my kind of print! Polka dots! I also really love the simplicity of Springs Sun.

  35. Jody says:

    They’re all great – such bright, cheerful colors! I think I like Gleeful Echo the best.

  46. lielebeesje says:

    I love this fabric! At the moment, After the Rain, is my fav! I’d love to make a bright, cheery baby quilt with this fabric line!

  50. Jo Robertson says:

    I love the look of After the rain in Voile

  51. Heather C says:

    Cheerful Echo is absolutely fabulous!

  52. Brooke says:

    I love the clamshell print and want to make some garments with it

  53. Niki says:

    I am in love with “After the Rain”! What a perfect color. I love non-geometric polka dot prints because they are easier to sew with.

  54. Karrie Smith says:

    The cheerful echo is probably my favorite print. When you look at the stack, each print *pops* out individually to me, which is something that normally doesn’t happen. When I focus on an individual print, I can see it as the main print, but the others submit to the background. For this stack, each fabric does that for me! Usually it’s only a couple that do that for me in a stack. This fabric is definitely for making a small quilt, a clutch like Caroline made, a bag, and would look great as a dress! (just one print at a time, not all of them!) Each print is really unique, so I really like that.

  55. Gina in MO says:

    It’s so difficult to choose one fabric fav of the bundle, so I’ll just say I lean toward any of the florals. Thank you for the Date Night Clutch tutorial.

  56. Flor Chavarria says:

    DO I really have to choose? Love the purple with large flower, but then I like the wiggly print and I like the stripes, hmmmmmmmmmm some pretty purses.
    I have never made a clutch

  57. Barbara P. says:

    I love the Cheerful Echo (teal scallops) used in the sample bag. Beautiful! I would also make bags, bags, and more bags.

  58. Jenniffer says:

    The Lively Buds jumps out for me

  59. Catherine says:

    I like the stripes, but they are all beautiful,

    Would love to make a lap quilt for my granddaughter using Hyperreal Garden line. Just love the prints and the colors seem to swirl/blend well.

  195. Lisa Marie says:

    The whole stack is gorgeous! Springs Sun does jump out at me because it just looks cheerful.

  196. Elizabeth K says:

    I love the fabric you used on the clutch. I would copy your design exactly!

  197. Joanna says:

    Such fun fabric. I would choose After the Rain though Charms Abound is a close second. I would make skirts for my two daughters with the fabric.

  198. Alexis says:

    I LOVE Preppy Fleurs!

  199. Terry D says:

    Fabric in beautiful colors makes me feel Gleeful — and this fabric does that. I love the main print with the navy background and green, yellow and pink roses. Wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway and good luck with this line!

  200. Sandy says:

    Cheerful Echo makes me think of the beach!

  201. Jennifer says:

    I love all the Gleeful fabrics but I guess if I had to pick just one, I would say my favorite is Preppy Fleurs. I’m totally smitten by Gleeful! And by this clutch ๐Ÿ™‚

  202. Jenny says:

    Preppy Fleurs + Springs Sun = Adorbable combo! Love the collection.

I love the yellow knit & think it would make an adorable Out & About Dress! I’m also lovin’ the blue with white polka dotted voile! Thanks for sharing the tutorial!

  211. Gina says:

    I love the charms abloom print. I’d probably make it into a skirt and after the rain in voile caught my eye for a cute blouse.

  212. Marti says:

    All the prints are lovely, but I have had a fascination with navy lately and After the Rain is just lovely.

  213. Kelly Wilson says:

    Very nice collection! The Lively Buds is a favorite – I love that color combo with lots of white.

  214. sarah says:

    I love yellow and pretty yellows can be hard to find so Spring Sun is my favorite. The fact that it comes in knit is amazing– perfect summer dress for my little girl. I’m also loving After the Rain. Thanks!

  215. caitlin l. says:

    love them all, but especially after the rain.

  216. Jolien says:

    I love Charms Abloom! Pink & flowers, not much more needed to make me happy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Springs sun is another great “neutral” I’d say! ๐Ÿ™‚

  217. Barbara says:

    I love the vibrant yellow of the Springs Sun fabric.

  218. Hanna says:

    I love the After the Rain fabric.

  219. Jess Z says:

    preppy fleurs

  220. Alli says:

    Those are such happy fabrics! I love them all, but I guess I like Untangled Ribbons the best. I’d make a cheerful baby quilt with them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  221. Love the scallops of Cheerful Echo, but I also think After the Rain is fab!

  222. Penny Owings says:

    Oh my goodness! The Gleeful prints are so much fun! The Charms Abloom pops out at me — it’s pink!!! A beautiful pink with white and some bright green!!!!! My favorite colors! I can see it as curtains in my craft room! I’d love to make one of the Date Night Clutches out of it too! (Maybe a couple!!! They would make great gifts!)

  223. Judith says:

    I just love the cheerful yellow of Spring Sun. And it comes in a knit! I can definitely see myself sewing with it in both substrates this summer.

  224. Amy says:

    Love the bright pink with the white flowers. So sweet!

  225. I would make my granddaughter a dress out of that big floral with navy background.

  226. Erika says:

    Love the Spring Breeze print!

  227. Debbie says:

    My favorite is Lively Buds. It would make the most delightful sun dress.

  233. Barbara Lasky says:

    I love how bright and cheerful the Gleeful fabrics look. I am drawn to the blue and green squiggles on the white background.

  234. Kristen says:

    I meant charms a bloom ๐Ÿ˜‰

  235. Mihla says:

    I adore all the patterns, but the sweet simplicity of Charms Abloom really grabs me.

  236. Kristen says:

    Love them all!! The blooms a breeze one is pretty special though!

  237. Becky M says:

    I can’t decide between cheerful echo and after the rains!

  238. Serena says:

    Charms Abloom is really sweet.

  239. Tori says:

    I love this fabric! And what a cute clutch. If I had some of this scrumptious fabric I would make a fabulous bag/purse…or maybe a backpack!

  240. Heather says:

    So hard to choose, the bright colors speak to my soul but if forced I’d have to puck the yellow squiggly print.

  241. Robin W says:

    Thanks for the tut! For some reason, I am intimidated by these purse frame thingies. Pics always help! I love the Preppy Fleurs print – outside my normal. And Gleeful – well that just sounds fun!

    As for fabrics – they are all so lovely, but if I had a choice, then – Lovely buds and Spring Sun speak to me the most!

  244. Juliet H says:

    I love spring breezes because it is so versatile and can be a blender/stash fabric! Thanks for the chance!

  245. Leandra says:

    Ooooo how pretty! These fabrics just make you smile and feel happy! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like the loopy lines – especially the blue and green version. It reminds me of happy doodles while daydreaming. I think it would make a cute journal cover! ๐Ÿ™‚

  246. AnnCP says:

    These are such happy prints! I love them all. Spings Sun is happy and the voile print, After the Rain, would be a fun one to make a top or backing for a quilt (excited to try that!). Excited to try doing this clutch technique!

  247. angie s. says:

    I love After the Rain print. Haphazard poka dots. So many possibilities.

  248. Michelle Olsen says:

    I love Springs in Breeze & Cheerful in Echo. I’d make a tote bag or some zippered pouches with the fabric (:

    Ahh, so cute!! I think the Untangled Ribbons is definitely my favorite print – I could see that as an adorable skirt, maybe with the yellow springs print as a border on the hem! Though, if I win the FQ set I will most likely turn it into a quilt. I’ve been wanting to make one out of really big HSTs and I think this would work out well! ๐Ÿ™‚
