What do you get when you mix a Luella Clutch with some Renaissance Ribbons?

A super cute little clutch purse, that's what!

I am so in love with these Tula Pink Line Work Ribbons

Look how super cute this small Luella Clutch is

I've been waiting get my hands on some of these gorgeous Tula Pink ribbons.

You know when you finally get something you've been waiting for, you drop everything to make it!

Well, that's what I did, I had enough ribbons to embellish two of our small Luella Clutches


Firstly I fused a stabiliser product to the back. I like to use a repositionable one like

Appli K Wonder or PrintFuse.

Then I placed the ribbons onto the Luella to decide on the layout. Once decided I peeled off the backing and stuck them down. I then stitched each one down.

For the edges where the ribbon has been cut I overcast them onto the felt to stop them fraying. I then added the solid black ribbon to the outside edges. My thread of choice for this project was WonderFil's Silco, its a 35 wt lint free cotton thread and for stitching the closure on, I use 12 wt Spagetti.


Yardage/ meterage required is:

I purchased this pack of ribbons plus I bought 1 extra metre of the Hexy Rainbow and 1 metre of Pompom Peony, this quantity has enabled me to embellish two small Luella Clutches.

I have worked out the meterage/yardage for one only, you will need the following:

35cms (13'' approx) of Panda Lovers 1.5'' wide

40cms (15'' approx) of Peacock Feather 1.5'' wide

65cms (25'' approx) of Zebra on Lines 7/8'' wide

65 cms (25'' approx) of Hexy Rainbow 3/8'' wide

60 cms (24'' approx) of Narrow Multi dots 7/8'' wide

50 cms (19'' approx) of Pompom Peony 3/8'' wide


Below are another two ideas of layouts using Sue Spargo and Mary Engelbreit ribbons as well as finished Luella's with assorted ribbons.

I hope you enjoy making one too!

Don't forget to send us photos of your finished embellished projects.

Happy embellishing,
