Welcome to Thread It Thursday!!!!
I love a sewing project that takes minimal time and has an immediate use. So my latest project is a handbag, organizer. I switch handbags often to compliment the outfit that I am wearing. To make this transition simple and to ensure I always have what I need in my handbag at all times. Most importantly it helps me to keep my handbag “ORGANIZED.” I don’t have to worry about my handbag feeling like a bottomless pit……digging around like a crazy woman…..trying to find what I’m looking for…..lol.
To make this handbag organizer simply check out the video below. You can also change the dimension to make it larger or smaller.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, it is greatly appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to comment I love hearing from you!!!
Happy Sewing & Until Next Time
It’s Thread It Thursday!!!!!!!!
Do you like DIY’s but perhaps you don’t sew ?????
Do you enjoy DIY’s but you don’t have a ton of time to spend on one???
Do you like the idea of a DIY until you see it requires a lot of supplies or that it’s going to be really expensive?????
Then this is a great DIY for you.
It’s a quick and easy No Sew project.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/8 of a yard of Suede, Faux or Genuine Leather
Permanent Fabric Glue (I used Aleene’s Fabric Fusion)
Lobster Claw Closure
A large binder clip
Cut your fabric
7.5″ × 4″ (or what ever you desire)
From that piece of cut fabric cut a strip that is 1/2″ wide. Fold that strip in half length wise and glue together. Next fold in half again and glue the ends together.
On the wrong side of your fabric, measure down 1″ and draw a line across.
Starting from the bottom cut/strips that are 1/4″ apart. Being sure not to cut pass the line drawn.
It will look like this. Next your ready to apply fabric glue as shown. The place the strip we cut and glued earlier as shown. Then tightly roll and use a binder clip to hold securely until dry.
Next place your lobster closure on to the jump ring and attach the jump ring to the tassel.
Now you can use your tassel on a handbag or as a keychain.
Happy Crafting & Thank you for stopping by.
Until Next Time,
Finally, finally…….I made a Sequin Clutch/ Make Up Bag. This has been on my long list of projects and now I can scratch it off the list of many.
So for quite some time I have wanted a sequin clutch and make up bag. I received a black sequin make-up bag as a gift from Neman Marcus a few years ago. I love it soooo but some of the sequins are starting to come off.
So this was more of an incentive to overcome my fears of working with sequin fabric.
So last week while cleaning out my daughters closets I came across this sequin skirt. Which was now to short for either one of my young ladies, so I tossed it in the donate pile along with many other items. Once I was done cleaning and sorting and bagging everything up…….I thought why not re-fashion the skirt. Which I only paid $2.00 for from Burlington Coat Factory and turn it into a clutch/ make-up bag.
So I went straight to pinterest to find a tutorial an I found one by Sweet-Verbena that was exactly what I had in mind. Very easy to follow and didn’t take long at all.
