Beaded Clutch

There is a new product from Tulip that I have been really excited to try.  It's called "Beads in a Bottle."  Ever since I heard about it I've been scheming some ideas of how to use it.  Today I'm going to show you this beaded clutch I made.

I have this fabric that I've been saving because I love it so much.  Today I whipped it out and sewed a quick clutch out of it.

Then I embellished the flap of the clutch with the Beads in a Bottle Paint.  It comes in a tube and you squeeze it out, forming little dots that end up looking like you stitched on beads.  I took some scratch paper and practiced a little bit before doing it on the purse.  The instructions are easy.  When you first pull upward it looks more like a raindrop (pointed at the top) but then it settles down and dries like a round bead.  It's really fun stuff and it comes in lots of colors.

You can use it to create designs on plain fabric, but I thought it would be fun to add it to a patterned fabric like this.  I only embellished the flap of the clutch because I thought it looked more authentic that way.


Here's a closeup of what it ends up looking like.

Perfect for a girl's night out.


Thanks for reading.

This is just all around gorgeous! I love the fabric and the vibrant colors, and the "bead" embellishments really set it apart. Will there be a tutorial for the clutch? I'd love to make my own!

I'm sorry, I just can't get past "whipped it out and sewed a quick clutch" without laughing--as if you were folding laundry or something! You're amazing, Cheri. I don't attempt much of what you do here because, honestly, I'm just not that crafty (and even more lazy). But I love to read every day and see what you've cooked up next. It's very inspiring, even to the craft-impaired. Thanks for sharing your talents! (P.S. I did make treat jars like yours for my husband for Christmas and he loved them.)

I love how simple and cute this is! Thanks for sharing.

And in the spirit of sharing, I saw this print and thought of your boys' room! It's so cute I might need it (grown woman with no kids :P )
