Fringe has been an accessory of choice of many designers for Fall 2014 season, and going strong for Spring 2015. Few days ago I was window shopping online, when I came across many gorgeous fringed clutches, but the one in black particularly caught my attention. Black is a must-have for Fall season, and I knew I can create my very own design without sacrificing my wallet. Also, I dug out an old "plain jane" clutch in the closet, and I thought, "I must do something with it and give it another chance in life!" So, now I can sport this proudly made Fringed Clutch, hooray!
The inspiration via here:
1. 10" long fringe
2. Tacky Glue
3. A simple clutch (similar here)
4. 1" Satin Ribbon (similar here)
5. Tailor's scissors
6. Glue gun, needle and thread, matchsticks, lighter
Step 1: Start with creating a ribbon pattern which will be applied on the clutch. Cut small pieces of ribbon and start gluing from the center. Dab a little glue and use matchsticks to even it out on surface.
Step 2. Continue gluing ribbon in a desired pattern overlapping edges. I only glued ribbon on one side.
Step 3. Make sure you seal the top edges with a lighter to prevent unraveling.
Step 4. Once you finished one side, let dry for 30 minutes and then continue to the other side. Let dry for another 30 minutes.
