Here's what you need:
Jingle bells (I chose two sizes)
Needle and thread
Isn't this clutch so cute? I got it at a consignment store for $3!! It is originally from Talbot's and still had the original tags on it!! I started by sewing a few in a row across the top....
This was how far I got after an hour. I sewed each bell on individually one by one. Yes, I cut and knotted each one.
This was after 2.5 hours...
And here it is finished. I know it seems like this took a long time to complete, but I worked on it at night while I was watching TV and also while waiting at ballet.
The purse is surprisingly not as 'loud' as you might think it would be. The bells do add a little bit of weight to it, but I think it turned out great!
