Personal Sewing Play Time

Now this was some serious sewing play time for me.

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making a metal frame clasp purse. I’m sure you’ve seen these.  They have been around for ever!  As you can see from this collection of purses that it took me several tries before I finally got it right.  By right I mean purse #6.

I played with different frames, different types of glue, different batting and stiffeners (iron on and sew in), and different patterns.  I read through several patterns (and rewrote several) and watched a lot of videos.  In the end I created my own pattern, created my own method, and wrote my own directions. . So, since I used up all my metal frames I had to order some more.  When those come in, look out!  I’m gonna make some great purses!

As a side note, for the purses I didn’t like, I tried to pull the fabric out of the metal frame so I could reuse it.  Didn’t happen.  I personally give the three different glues I tried a thumbs up!

This made for a great weekend of fun!
