Create fabulous neon stripes using the Tulip Neon Fabric Markers on a super chic Neon Geometric Clutch with this simple DIY tutorial. I’m using a fuzzy faux shearling fabric for this clutch, I was able to color it really easily and well with the fabric markers and it’s so cozy and cuddly to hold!
My inspiration to make this clutch came from this clutch I saw in a magazine and of course the amazing potential of the Tulip Neon Fabric Markers. These fabric markers have a brush tip on them making it perfect to write or color on a fabric with pile or texture. The color came out really strong and gorgeous!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Faux Shearling fabric
Zipper (I used a 7”)
Sewing machine or needle & thread
Cut your shearling fabric.
I cut mine 15 inches wide by 12 inches tall.
You want to cut the width twice as long as your zipper plus 1 inch.
Layout your fabric on a flat surface. Measure and draw stripes across one end of your fabric.
Fill in your stripes with your fabric marker.
You may need to go back and forth to get all sides of the pile on your shearling fabric.
You want your stripe to be really strong and solid.
Let it dry.
Fold your fabric right sides together and pin your zipper in place.
Unzip your zipper and sew it to your fabric. It’s much easier to sew with the zipper unzipped.
Zip your zipper closed and sew your side seam.
Open your zipper at least a little.
Turn your clutch and fold your end so that your side seam is in the middle of your end seam and sew.
Turn right side out through the zipper.
