Burlap Love - No Sew Pouch

Hello All,

Carrying forward my love for burlap, I am sharing a burlap pouch that I had been wanting to create for quite some time. This pouch is simple, pretty and can be used in so many ways - use it as a clutch to match that favourite party dress, as a money pouch or as a mobile slip case -  you are sure to make a style statement.

For the front, I used the Prima texture paste (Paltinum crackle) and the Itsy Bitsy Irregular Dots stencils to create interest. I used sepia coloured crystals on both sides of the pouch that were sealed using a hot glue gun. The single rose on the right hand side is handmade. The leaves are embossed with gold embossing powder- love they way light is reflected from them.

I wanted to add some chic to the pouch so added a piece of lace on the back side. I have used velcro in the centre as closure for the pouch. Last but not the least, I decorated the flap with rows of crystal and some flat base pearls and VOILA!....I was ready to flaunt my glitzy dazzling pouch :).

This is all for this post. Do share your views below and link to similar creations that you would crafted using burlap.

I would like to take this pouch to the Anything Goes using the Itsy Bitsy STENCILS challenge.

I will be back soon to share some more handcrafted goodness.

Until then.....happy crafting!!
