Anyway, I recently found some pictures of the clutches I made for my bridesmaids, so I thought I would share those and link-up to the tutorial I used, which was incredibly helpful to me as I had never worked with a purse frame before.
I used dupioni silk, and lined each purse with a personalized fabric that suited each lady.
|This was before I had glued the frame, if I remember correctly, so don't pay attention to the gap...|
Sadly, I can't find the flower tutorial I used, but this one is close, although the silk flowers could not be singed.
Inside each of the clutches, I put a lovely little jewelry set from Element4You for them to wear with their dresses.
I gave the girls their purses and jewelry at our bachelorette dinner, and proceeded to get tipsy and incredibly mawkish. We went out to an Irish pub, where I had my first Irish Car Bomb, and then to Pizza Port, because my hometown doesn't have much of a bar scene. At the end of the night, my sister took me home and we watched North in bed.
Love those ladies...
