Vintage Inspired Clutch Purse



Make a Vintage Inspired Clutch Purse for your next night on the town. This hand made purse is pretty, fun and full of personality. The bright colors and sparkle favored by Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo make this a fun project to explore.

Vintage Inspired Clutch Purse


  • Clutch
  • Tulip Soft Paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Tulip 3D Fashion Paint
  • Assorted gems, crystals, plastic metallic stickers and colored pebbles


  1. Wipe down the purse with a damp cloth. Use chalk to sketch your general design on the front of the purse. Paint the areas, these will serve as the background to the embellishments.

  2. Add plastic metallic stickers, use dots of 3D paint to seal them down, add a small crystal inside each dot. Use 3D paint to glue down other accents. I like to use a glittery 3D shade because it adds more dimension to the purse. Let dry!

Love it! Kathy's and Daisy's great eyes for color and balance turn ordinary to awesome. Paint, jewels, and also beads transform the plainest purse to a work of art. Bling not your thing? Tack a fillet crochet 'slip cover' on your fabric clutch. Add ribbon roses, charms, or leave plain. Frugal fun and fabulousness can still be had in these Pricey Purse times
