Guest Project — Make Whimsical Glove Purses {great party craft}

5 Jan
Hello!
  Hoot Photography Blog
My name is Chrissy and I’m thrilled to be guest posting on Jen’s Tatertots and Jello Blog. 
My blog is about to get a makeover and a name change.  Currently Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow but soon to be Hoot Designs.  

This super fun purse is great for a young girl or with a long strap can be worn to dress up an outfit of yours.
The supplies are super simple, many you might already have. Buttons, sequins, ribbon, felt, $1 gloves, oval glass beads and puffy paint.
 
     
In this photo it shows buttons as “rings” and dotted fingertips.  Really here is no right or wrong with this project.
Now you need your “flap” for the purse, which you will want to be able to get inside of.   This is simply cut from felt with pinking sheers and hand sewn to the back part of the opening of the glove.  Cut it as wide as the wrist of your glove.  I made it with a fold making it two ply which you will eventually hot glue together to seal the threads inside.  It also makes the flap more stable.  I hand stitched it to the glove edge across the fold of the flap.
The left photo shows the flap unembellished and on the right with the oval glass beads attached with E6000 glue and a few sequins added with a needle and thread.  The same paint on the fingers and dotted around the trim is also used to make the snowman’s buttons and face features.
Here is another variation, dots for a ring and the addition of the felt hat.  The colors you choose and the decorations you can add are endless!
After all your embellishments are added you can add a ribbon for your strap. This can be hot glued to the flap inside seams before you hot glue it shut around the edges.
Thanks Chrissy!!
