  • How to make a pouch, purse or wallet. Diy Crystal Beaded Purse - Step 1
    Step 1

    At first measure the height of the purse and cut 3 times longer (than the height of the purse) plastic thread. Thread 3 bicone beads into the plastic thread, set the 3 beads on the center of the thread. Now thread another bicone bead from both sides

    Step 2

    As you can see that the thread is now divided into 2 parts, thread 1 bead on each side and again thread the 3rd bead from both sides.

    Repeat this process until it reaches the required length. When the crystal beaded chain reaches its required length thread the last few beads randomly with the remaining thread to lock the beads. Make a number of crystal beaded chains, as many as you need to complete the purse. Place them side by side to see if they reach the required width. I had to make 8 crystal beaded chains to complete the purse. Make sure that the chains are of the same length.

    Step 4

    Take a good amount of plastic thread (or 3 times longer than the purses height) and thread a bicone bead into it, set it in the center of the thread. Place 2 crystal beaded chains side by side and insert the thread into the beads of these 2 chains by keeping the threaded bead in the center (see the first picture of this step). Notice that I've colored the thread into 2 colors (yellow and red) for both sides.

    After inserting the thread into the beads of the side-by-side crystal beaded chains, thread another bead from both sides with that thread. Repeat the process until it reaches the other end,

    Use the same technique to increase the width of the purse. Join all the crystal beaded chains together with this technique. After reaching the other end insert the remaining thread randomly into the last few beads to lock them.

    Sew an interior piece for the purse, I used satin fabric to make it. Insert the interior piece into the crystal beaded exterior piece of the purse. Push the interior piece inside and make sure the edges of both exterior and interior pieces match nicely. Use a needle and thread to stitch the exterior and interior pieces together. Enjoy!
