Dryer Lint Clutch

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Dryer Lint Clutch Purse Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/user/206787/projects What are you most proud of? It's originality. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful pulling the lint from the dryer: the tiny fibers do float around and can be irritating to sinuses. Also, don't collect too much dryer lint before using it....it could become a fire trap.

What you will need

  • Dryer lint? Seriously? Yes! I couldnt resist the soft color and textures in a sheet of lint pulled from my dryer trap. I created the fabric by layering the lint with a cotton backing
  • a sprinkling of snippets and glitter
  • a layer of organza
  • and random stitching to hold it all together. I lined the purse with purple cotton
  • and added a snap closure covered by a hand-made
  • metallic thread embellished bead. A few Swarovski crystals dot the front. Just the right size for a smart phone (not included
  • of course!) Inside is about 3.5 by 5 and the outside finished size is about 4.5 by 5.5. Truly one of a kind!
