Fiducia Clutch with Embroidery
"Fiducia is Latin for trust. Anytime we experience darkness in our lives, it is difficult but necessary that we trust that one day there will be light again. Like the age old saying, "April showers bring May flowers" we, too, need to trust that there will be goodness on the other side of our pain. Both embroidery and crochet have been vital tools for my own personal healing through post partum anxiety and depression and I hope I can share them both with you. This clutch pattern is by Emily of Fiat Fiber Arts, and published as a guest post on Underground Crafter. I start with a Tunisian simple stitch rectangle. Then we get to be creative and embroider on the fabric! The post include video tutorials by FiatFiberArts to help you if you aren't familiar with the embroidery stitches."

Instructions for Tunisian simple stitch are given to stitch a solid rectangle of fabric. Next, I have a description of the types of embroidery stitches used in the pictured piece. I have a diagram to show placement of stitches but the diagram is not drawn to scale. Instructional videos show how to perform the embroidery stitches.
My clutch was lined with fabric, and I have brief instructions for how I did that without sewing. Next the fabric is folded and seamed on the sides. I have no closure for this clutch, it's a top folded piece.
