I am so excited to share my newest pattern with you 🙂
Introducing the Hippo Clutch Wallet!
The Hippo Clutch Wallet holds 10 cards, has 4 separate larger pockets for your notes and receipts. It also has a zipper pocket for your coins and a phone pocket. The phone pocket is large enough to fit a plus size phone, but if you have a smaller phone you can carry a little extra in there, for example your keys and some lippy.
What do you need to make this gorgeous wallet?
And…bonus! The Hippo Clutch Wallet matches your Hippo Hobo Bag perfectly too 😉
The finished size of The Hippo Clutch Wallet measures approximately 9” wide x 5″ tall (23cm wide x 12.7cm tall).
If your in LOVE with my versions…just wait until you see the testers versions – they did an absolutely amazing job, so brace yourself 😉
This is Charlotte‘s version, isn’t it sweet! I love the pipping on the flaps and little tassel she added to the front of hers so that it would match her Hippo Hobo <3
Charlotte said “I just loved making this!! The construction of this wallet is just so clever, and it’s more of a clutch than a wallet thanks to its size. I’m so happy there’s now an accessory to match to the Hippo Hobo bag!!”
This is Mel‘s gorgeous version! Isn’t this fabric combo just perfect <3
Mel said “I really like it and it’s definitely on the ‘will make again’ list! It’s one of those clever patterns where, along the way you’re thinking “how is THIS going to work?”….but just trust it and it cleverly comes together at the end. Not hard at all, and well written! Perfect match for the Hippo Hobo and will make a great set!”
Nancy’s version is a vision in purple – and isn’t it lovely <3
Nancy said “I really like this pattern it was very cute and it’s a good size. Next time I will use either stiff stuff by lazy girl, or something else instead of the foam which for my taste made it to puffy.”
A great idea to try your own interfacing combo if you prefer 🙂
Mitzi made this pretty version!
Mitzi said “I thought this was a very well written pattern (as all Emma’s are!) Emma is very thorough in walking you through the making of this wallet, making it easy to assemble if you follow the steps exactly as written and going step by step. I think this is an amazing wallet- super functional- with plenty of room for all of your necessities and then some. This wallet also looks like it is super complicated to make, which it’s not – but people will be amazed that it is handmade! I love all the pockets! All the card slots and the way the wallet is assembled is amazing”.
Rose made this awesome ORANGE version! so lovely and bright 🙂
Rose said “It’s a super cute wallet! I want to make some hippo hobos, and can’t wait to make matching wallets!!!”
Anna made this beauty! Aren’t the flowers so cute!
Anna said “This is a quick easy-to-follow pattern” – thanks Anna!
Toni made this beautiful version. She chose to use fabric that reminded her of her wedding bouquet – what a great way to remind your self of your wedding day Toni!
Toni said, “I think this wallet clutch is the perfect accompaniment to the Hippo Hobo, or perfect size for a night out with all the essentials. It’s clever construction is precise and easy to follow. I will definitely make it again :)”
This is Maria‘s awesome white and blue version – isn’t is just so pretty!
Maria said, “The wallet has a very clever construction! I specially like that it looks so difficult, but indeed it’s so simple to make…My favourite part are the two saps and how they reveal so many compartments when you open them.”
Susan made this beautiful version in my favourite colours 😉 She must have been thinking of me when she chose them – lol!
Susan said ” I liked it! It’s bigger than I expected”.
Jayne made this classic black and white version. She has a small phone, so can fit lots of extra things in that phone pocket 😉
Jayne said “I really liked it even with the dumb mistakes I made 🙂 I found that it was actually surprising how easy it went together 😉 …for so many features it was a great sew the more you make it the faster it will go together too!”
Barbara made these two beauties! I love the tartan one, but I think the RED one is my favourite of these two 😉
Barbara said “I love the size and feel of the finished product. Yes I will be making more of them!”
Jane made this cutie! How adorable are those skeletons 🙂
Jane said, “This is the perfect companion to the very essential Hippo Hobo! Absolutely love the pattern. I want to make another one with fleece to see if I prefer it softer :)”
Margareth made this stunning cork fabric version! the spotty lining is just perfect too!
Margareth said, “I definitely liked the construction of this. Very clever how it comes together in the end!”
Kristina made this lovely version to match her latest Hippo Hobo!
Kristina said, “I love the purse and will definitely make it again. It’s a great wallet for going out or even for traveling. My phone fits easily!”
Amy made this bright and happy version. I love how she quilted the main body <3

Leslie made this fun and creative version. I love her addition of the reverse applique she did for the words and the heart <3
Katie made this beautiful olive leather and Alison Glass version – its just breath taking! Don’t you agree!
Katie said, “I love the pattern. I love that the wallet is versatile (wristlet, phone holder, so many pockets, travel/passport holder). I love that it matches a Hippo Hobo bag so well.”
Lynne made this beautiful grey linen and green/orange version.
Lynne said, “Love the pattern Emma, so cleverly constructed and a very quick sew”.
Melisa made this beautiful version to match her very popular cloud Hippo Hobo’s – I think she made 8 of these exact Hippo Hobo’s in one go for her customers at one time! I wonder if she will get as many orders for the Hippo Clutch Wallet in this farbic 😉
Casey made this very cool version! I love that she kept it black and white on the inside to tie it all together.
Casey said, “LOVE it! I will be making more for sure.”
Did you love all the testers versions? I was blown away when I saw them – I love them all 🙂
