Here’s what you’ll need to make your own patriotic clutch…
First you want to wash the bag or clutch you choose to use for the project and let fully dry.
Next decide on a pattern for your clutch. You could do more of a traditional flag look or what I did was a folded flag look. Also decide if you want to do one or two sides. I did both, but it would be cute with one side blank.
Start in a corner and apply the blue fabric crayon. Once you are happy with the blue begin the striped part of the flag alternating red and white.
Now let the paint dry for a few hours.
Once dry, it’s time to iron the paint to set it. Turn your iron on high and use a thin cloth between the project and your iron. Iron the project well for 1-2 minutes.
