Just a little bit of sparkle can dress up anything. Thanks to Connie Crystal for the opportunity to work with some of the products. Find some sparkling ideas on the Sparkle blog.
There are a number of other designers who are also participating in this manufacturer challenge using products from Connie Crystal. This product is new to me and I can see many uses for the crystal sheets to add some extraodinaire glitz to a wide variety of projects.
To show off the sparkle of the crystal sheets that I received, I first created a black felt handbag as a surface. To give the bag a special finish I attached the crystal pendant that I also received onto the handbag's flap.
I cut two single strips of the crystals from the sheet. The strips were handsewn along the edge of the handbag flap, front and back. The extra was trimmed away.
From the remaining crystal sheet, I cut away a 4-square count of the crystals to create a simple pattern in the mesh. I attached it in a few places with Fabri Tac glue and then stitched around it with handsewing to hold it into place. Attach a piece of Velcro onto the flap and handbag front to help keep the bag closed.
Any plain purse or handbag can take on a whole new look with some Connie Crystal sheets.
