Yesterday I showed you the new line of Sharpie’s that are out – a set of 24 awesome permanent markers with 19 classic colours and 5 limited edition pops of colour. I wanted to show you how you could make some DIY gifts this season, and decided to go the route of fabric, and show you how you could make your own boho inspired clutch. This is totally something I would have loved doing as a teen (and as an adult) but how fun would this be to get a table full of vibrant Sharpie pens, blank canvas pouches, some pony beads and string, to create unique, one of a kind items to either keep for yourself, or, for a teen to give as a gift.
Step 1 / Collect your tools.
1.Sharpie Color Burst Markers
I used the Fine vs. the Ultra Fine for this project, as it was easier to use on the fabric that had a lot of fibers.
2. Cotton Pouches
Find at your local craft store or, various Etsy sellers sell them too
3. Pony Beads / Gold Washers from the Hardware Store
Sold at your local craft store but also online (see the craft collection on Etsy I’ve curated to help inspire you for this project)
I started out sketching some ideas on a tester pouch that you can see in the background below. This was good because I wanted to see how the pens reacted to the fabric – there was zero bleeding. Once you’re ready to go, just start doodling. I did a variety of patterns on a few pouches to show you some ideas.
To get the boho look on the pink clutch I simply cut off the fabric piece that came with the pouch when I purchased it, and replaced it with some basic string.
Where to buy // The new, limited edition Sharpie® Color Burst Permanent Markers are available at Walmart, Staples, Loblaws, Deserres, Michaels and Amazon.ca and retail (MSRP) for $5.99 (5 pack) and $28.99 (24 pack)
