Mod Podge Handbag

This is my first pod modge handbag. It is an evening bag. The fabric is black with a bit of sheen. I mounted on the back side a stiff peltex and free motion machine stitch the entire bag.
From there I layered first a decrotive paper in a paisley design. then added silk flowers and beads.
In addition I added on top of the silk flowers 2 beaded clusters. one on the bottom left and one on the top right side. These are not mounted with the mod podge, I used a special adhesive for this.
The mod podge I used was a high gloss. I might try the matte next time.
I am not to thrilled the way the edges came out. I would much rather not have the mod podge on the bag itself in plain site, so I am going to work on it a little bit more.
It came out ok for the first time. I will make another.

It looks beautiful to me. I'm surprised the mod-podge doesn't make it really stiff or does it?

Keep up the good work, ann

I have nominated you for the Brilliant Weblog Award because I LOVE your blog and because I didn't want to be the party-pooper who stopped the momentum of the award!
