I absolutely loved the fan shaped clutch by Lulu Guinness when I saw it! I thought it was so elegant and pretty, but not in my budget, so I decided to do my own, inspired by it. The original one has no "tail", is larger and the decoration is embroidered. I went for a simpler version! See the full DIY at the end of this post ;)
J'ai eu un coup de coeur pour la pochette en forme d'éventail de chez Lulu Guinness! Je l'ai trouvée très belle et élégante, mais malheureusement hors budget, donc j'ai décidé de m'en inspirer pour en fabriquer une! La version originale n'a pas de "bout", est plus large et la décoration est brodée. J'ai fait un peu plus simple! Le tutoriel est à la fin de cet article ;)
I was wearing:
Shorts: River Island
Bracelet: Bijou Brigitte
Clutch: DIY (tutorial at the end)
The DIY part itself is very easy: You will need pearl paint, thick fabric, chalk stick, scissors, beads and glue.
1- My fabric was a wide rectangle. I first drew the seashell shape with a chalk stick and cut two even sides.
2- Again with the thin chalk stick, I drew all the lines and patterns (it's easier to erase than the paint)
3- With a very thin brush , I drew the lines with the pearl paint and let it dry for 2 hours.
4 - I glued the beads with super glue.
5 - Once every thing was completely dried, I sew both parts together with a sewing machine, leaving a hole on the top to put things inside, then I sew a tiny piece of Velcro fastener. Of course you could do this by hand.
6 - I made a small tassel with beads and strings that I attached to the pointy bottom of the fan clutch.
