My Bling Bling Stud Purse

Added Mar 22, 2011

So, this was my first time working with a purse frame, and I think it went ok, besides the fact that I had unremovable glue all over the place, and that the leather was a pain to work with. And I don’t really trust my glue to hold on for long. Hmmm. But I will try it again, in a more purse-friendly fabric and with better glue.

The shell is made of purple, synthetic leather, and the lining of hot pink cotton with white polka dots. There are 3 shades of rhinestuds on one side of the purse: purple, acid yellow and gold. The other side has no rhinestuds on it.

I made the 2 chains with the glass prisms as well, using chain, prisms and some big, silver rings. Easy enough. I also made a matching keyring for my bff. She likes it very much.

For the purse I used this tutorial, but made the corners round:

My original drawing features a leather strap and a tassel, but I liked it better without.

Material Notes

Purple, synthetic leather, pink cotton, metal frame, 3 shades of rhinestuds (90 in total), rhinestuds applicator, silver chain, silver rings, acrylic prisms, a keyring, thread

      Thank you, they took forever to put on. I might ad a few more later on, though.
