1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Clutch Remake Glue+Fabric on: April 06, 2012 03:34:11 AM


This is a clutch bag I made using an old and worn out 80's shoulder bag, vintage fabric and some glue.

The supplies I used:



I bought this varnish/glue mix thing from my local craft store. A lot of people seem to use Mod Podge when making stuff like this so I guess that would have worked really well, but I am in Sweden and we don't have fancy stuff like that up here Tongue The glue/varnish is pretty good though. Earlier I used it to make glitter shoes and no glitter has come off yet.







I made the closure like this:



... And glued it on to the back of the bag:



And here's what it looks like from the front:



Def one of my most successful remakes! The bag went from being ready for the trash can to looking quite fancy!

(If you're intrested I made a more detailed tutorial for this on my DIY-blog: http://ragstocouture.com/clutch-bag-remake-diy/)

Probably some of the best paper beads that I have ever seen... They're so neat!

That laquer looks like fun...

And there's a special paper bead rolling tool? I think I need to go and do some googling now...
