I haven't made a purse frame purse in aaages. I had forgotten how quick they are to make. I took a bit of jiggling around to get the pattern right (yeah, I screwed up it up about 6 times...), but once the pattern was sorted I whipped this up in under 1 hour...
**UPDATE** if you want to see the pattern that I used to make the purse below click here.
Powder pink purse with this silver frame. I have used a couple of layers of fleece to give the purse support and a puffy finish. At the mo we are starved of sunny daylight here in the UK. What you can't tell from the picture is that I am trying to get the most light by lying on my belly on the table (and I am more or less hanging out of the window!)
Side view. I had to follow my tutorial on how to make the purse because it's been a while. I am definitely going to whip up some more of these; I have some linen and a bag of lace and ribbon that needs using (instead of being looked at lovingly).
Whilst I'm on the subject of my tutorials I was having a browse around in the new flickr group (U-Handbag Tutorials) and I was over the moon to see that Panaddanui had made herself a Backpack bag.
This yummy powder blue pleated pouch also caught my eye...
By Claire Very lady-like. Lovely for a wedding or a ball.
Oh this is completely unrelated, but I wanted to share a tip with you: In our supermarket I saw they were selling bottles olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette spray for £5.00 ($10). It's basically a bottle with a spray and one part olive oil to one part balsamic vinegar. So rather than pay a silly price I got a plain plastic spray bottle and made up the dressing myself. So much cheaper and your food gets a nice even coating (instead of flooding the plate and wasting it). Handy eh?
