I have been really excited to try "Beads in a Bottle" ever since I heard about and 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 sphere. 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.
