DIY project... Jewelry clutch

11:32 PM

So, here's the reason why I haven't posted anything in a couple of days. Yesterday I went out to buy some fabric, but I found these awesome black piece of fabric in my grandma's house, and my mum fixed the sewing machine. I've spent about a day and a half sewing beads, jewelry, and more beads.
I didn't do a tutorial because I really thought this would be a totally mess. My mum had to help me (I used to sew, but not things with the machine) and she also had to sew the zipper, but I'll learn to do it by myself soon :)

Anyway, it's quite easy to make. I just followed Andy Torres' tutorial but before sewing the two black pieces of fabric, I put on the inside another piece of thicker of fabric, and I sewed the beads (I made two guides with adhesive to make them look like a ''line''). To make the clutch look more rigid and because of the weight of the jewelry it fell down when carrying it, I put two pieces of cartron between the outside and the inside fabric.

I just love it, and I'm very proud of it. I know it's not perfect, but it's my first sewing project like this, and I think it finally looks great. I think it absolutely looks like Chanel or something vintage because of the jewelry, I can't wait to wear it!!
