Necessary Clutch Wallet (NCW) Pattern
The Necessary Clutch Wallet, other wise known as the NCW, isn’t just your ordinary wallet. Carry your cell phone/mobile, checks, cash, cards, coins and still have room for your favorite lipstick or even personal items. With its closed ends, everything is safe and secure and there is never any worry about anything sliding out.
Secure your clutch wallet with either a snap fastener or a professional-looking twist-lock available in my supplies section Here. (A "SMALL TURN LOCK 1-3/8" x 3/4" is recommended.)
