Hello, readers of my blog «I sewing machine!». The topic of today’s article – Make a clutch bag with Swarovski crystals.
The summer came ahead of holiday, sun, sea, beach. And at least one evening at the resort want to walk magnificently in a dazzling outfit. For such cases suitable clutch bag with a nautical theme, embellished with Swarovski crystals.
We will need:
artificial or genuine leather blue color;
the magnetic button;
For your clutch I took faux patent leather. Working with her difficult as she is sensitive to creases. The shells I use are natural, so they will varnish to create the effect of wet surface, you can buy them in stores for needlework. You will also need the Swarovski crystals of blue, green and several shades of brown.
First, prepare the shells. Will Bezirk surface.
Apply the first coat of varnish and leave to dry. In 20 minutes you can apply a second layer.
While the varnish dries, we’ll do a clutch. To cut out leather details of the bag:
22х54 cm — 1 item (main item);
22х20 cm — 1 detail (side of valve);
6h16 cm — 2 parts (sides).
From lining fabric:
26х18 cm — 2 items;
22х16 cm — 2 items (pocket).
On the main details create the seabed. On your clutch I have embroidered. You can do applique or paint with acrylic paints.
Attracive the bottom. To do this, build two lines at a distance of 5 cm from each other. The first line at a distance of 15.5 cm from the edge (opposite the edge with embroidery). This step is necessary if the creases on the skin get rough and ugly.
Bendable detail and stitch on the line at a distance of 0.5 cm from the edge. Do the same thing with the second line.
Sew the sides of the clutch. First sew both parts only to the front of the bag, starting from the top edge. Finishing line at a distance of 1 cm from the bottom.
Then sewn to the back of the bag and to the bottom.
Set the button on the bag and on valve components.
Sew the lining bag. I will not elaborate, can be done without any pockets. Do not forget to leave armhole at the bottom of the lining to turn the bag later.
Sew the flap to the lining. Attracive on the lining.
Sew the lining. First sew the valve parts on the bottom edge. Attracive on the wrong details.
Sew the lining circle. Gut-wrenching. If you have a set of valve stiffness, do it now. Attracive seam, laying a line through the detail of the valve, entering it on 4 cm (the depth of the clutch).
Now proceed to the fun part — decorating. First place on our sandy bottom of the shell. Take the shells (if halves) and fill the inner surface with glue.
After the layer hardens, the surface alignment, cutting off the excess glue with a knife. Glue seashells to the clutch.
We will continue to create dunes in the sand. To do this, take the Swarovski crystals. I used crystals of 3 types:
ABF Jonquil (213 AB) — size SS12.
Light Colorado Topaz (246) — size SS10.
Burgundy F (515) — size SS10.
Carefully glue, creating sandy hills.
Decorate the shell.
For algae I used crystals Peridot (214) size SS10. Glue them along one edge throughout the length of the grass.
For waves — Light Sapphire (211) size SS10. Pasted on the crests of the waves.
Put in shell pearl. Our clutch is ready.
With this accessory you will be Shine in the truest sense of the word.
Thank you for your attention, I hope the master class will be useful.
