Thanks heaps for your kind comments about my powder pink frame purse. I had a whole bunch of requests for the pattern that I used to make it. So without further ado; here you go...
So, start off with a 26.5cm x 16cm rectangle sheet of paper then measure and cut as shown in the pic below:
This pattern make a purse which looks like this. To make the pattern follow the steps below:
- Fold the paper in half by bringing the short edges together and create the pattern with the paper halved. It's always best to make symmetrical patterns in this way.
- On the bottom corner open edge measure a 95 degree angle and mark the line to the side edge (this line should be 12cm long) and trim off the angle.
- Turn the paper on it's side (so the side edge is now facing you) and measure 62 degree angle and mark the line the top edge (this line should be 8cm long) and trim off the angle.
- Now round of the top edge corners as in the picture. You should be left with a top edge measuring 14cm (give or take a few mms).
- There, that's the pattern sorted now you can follow the purse frame tutorial from step 3 onwards.
- Proudly show off your yummy new purse in the U-Handblog Tutorials Flickr.
It was actually sunny yesterday, so one thing I did to make the most of the light was to take pics of the latest deliveries for the shop:
Have a fabby weekend everyone!
