Jen Matott here to share a project that is perfect for all of you fashionistas! With parties all around, I thought it was time that I show my artistic side with a new and unique clutch purse to wear with my little black dress. I had some natural colored denim (or canvas) that I embellished
with some Gelato stamping, sprays made from Gelatos and water, and my PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper's Big Brush Pens!
I started with a piece of canvas and added stenciled designs using sprays made from Gelatos and direct application of new Gelato colors to a circle template. Once dry, I added stamped text and wings with a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black.
Next I cut a piece of fabric for the lining and used fusible interfacing to bond the two together. I stitched the front and lining together at the bottom with a straight stitch.
I folded the bottom up 3/4 of the way and stitched the sides together. The top was cut to resemble an envelope flap. I stitched the edges around the flap.
Finally, I added embellishments such as a sequined edging using fabric glue. I also added a snap and an artsy flower.
I can't wait to bring this baby along to my winter parties! You will love the new colors of Gelatos too... coming soon to CHA!
