1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Sparkle Clutch with fingers crossed on: October 14, 2004 08:11:04 AM
Thanks for the compliments! The magic lies in the actual purse form itself. It is a blank, hard-plastic, shell that is lined in acetate with a little pocket inside. It comes this way, ready-to-customize. I measured the shell and cut out fabric panels. I pulled the flower outline from a magazine and enlarged the image I made a "pattern" by poking holes in the paper image and transfered the pattern to the brown houndstooth with a marker, plotting for the rhinestones. After that was done, I stitched the patch to the cut pinstriped wool and then freyed the edges of the patch and then used fabric glue to stick the pinstriped panels to the purse form. Took very little time... So fun...must make more. I got the clutch shell from www.thevintageworkshop.com. YAY!

So excited about these cool, blank, hard plastic clutches! I made this one with wool suiting and this great rhinestone setting tool that sets with heat-so easy. This is my first time posting with an image, so here we go....
I ordered both the clutch and the rhinestone setting tool from www.thevintageworkshop.com  They also carry iron-on transfers, and printable cotton fabric(!) as well as vintage image collections.

I'm from Western Mass and just moved to Kansas City. Acme suplus is all I can think of other than Army surplus stores and they aren't too scientific. Try Springfield. NIce to here from Noho. I grew up in Montague Center.

Hey there. I live in Kansas City, just moved here from Western Massachusetts. As an avid crafter, I am very pleased with the overall craft supply selection from chain stores to independent retailers. I work for a mosaic studio that sells an abundance of stuff to mosaic and do other crap with. Come to KC.

Fantasic transformation! I painted a whole set of dark brown kitchen chairs glossy black and reuhpolstered the seats with turquoise vinyl and silver upholstery tacks.  For the painting part, I used two little cans of Rustoleum glossy enamel black (the kind you paint on with a brush) and found it provided excellent coverage, only two coats per chair and no need to shellac afterwards.  So easy, and great looking, you want to paint all your furniture that way.
