My first DIY project! I saw this idea on another fashion blog – thanks
…love Maegan for the inspiration!
Okay, now to turn this into something special! It’s very easy, just time consuming.
Perfect project for a day off.
I used a roll of black chiffon that I found in the remnants bin at Jo Ann Fabrics
for $1. I bought the fabric awhile back thinking I would find a use for it someday.
So glad I did!
So first step: Cut a strip of chiffon. The size of the strip will affect the size of the flower.
My strips were approximately 4″x8″. By my picture below, it’s pretty clear to see
that perfection is not necessary.
Next, fold the strip into anÂ accordion-styleÂ fold.
Yeah, they’re cute … now back to work.
I placed my flowers on the lower half of the purse and all over the back. At the
magnetic closure, I placed one flower and a button in the center … I love the results!
What do you think of my $3 purse compared to the Christian Louboutin version?
Is this simple enough that you think you could make your own? I’m sure many
of you have old un-used clutches laying around from school dances.Â Give it a shot!
