The Necessary Clutch Wallet

Posted on


The Necessary Clutch Wallet (or NCW for short) is one of our best selling products and so I thought I'd do a little blog post about why thats the case.

I've been making NCW's using the Emmaline bags pattern for about 2 years and I've made around 150 now so it's a pattern I know and love and it's so easy to make it unique for the owner.


The large NCW measures 8 inches across by 4 inches high and has a thickness of about 1.5 inches. It's a really nice size to carry all your essentials in and can be custom ordered with a wrist strap for you to carry on a night out or with an across body strap so you can wear it around town instead of carrying a handbag.


Here's a breakdown of the features of it.

  • Choose from a twist lock or magnetic clasp closure,
  • Space for 12 Credit / debit / store cards,
  • Note slots at the front and back of the purse,
  • a zipped coin pocket,
  • space in the centre for most mobile phones,

A Mini NCW measures  5.5" inches across by 4 inches tall with a thickness of 1.5 inches and can also be ordered with the above optional extras.


It has the same features as the Larger NCW but only holds 6 credit / debit / store cards and the centre section can hold keys or lipstick instead of a mobile phone (unless you have a teeny tiny one!)


The Mini NCW is £30 and the large NCW is £35 plus p&p and can have the following extras:

  • Across body strap £8.00 (character fabrics £10.00)
  • Wrist strap £8.00 
  • Extra zip pocket in central area £5.00
  • Clear vinyl pocket for ID £5.00 


I personally LOVE these purses, especially as I carry a lot of stuff around in my purse. I have made about 4 of these for myself as I end up making them for customers, loving their fabric choices and having to make one for myself too, I'm running out of space to store them all but they are all awesome!


There are lots of ready to buy NCW's both mini and normal in the web shop and can be found here . Alternatively if you'd like to custom order one so you can have it exactly the way you want it then just send us a message via the Facebook page or use the contact us tab on the website.



Hope you love these as much as I do!
