Make your own Clasp Purse.
Happy Weekend All
Today's little tutorial is how to make a clasp purse now that you know how to make a pattern.
The only thing is on this particular tutorial they glue their fabric in but I prefer to buy the stitch in
Using vintage embroidered cloths to cut out for the purse front is a great time saver and makes a stunning purse. Do not forget to line your purses ..... The slightly blurry picture on the right is a piece of vintage embroidered linen that I have and I am thinking this would make a beautiful clip purse. Then line it with some French linen with an S monogram ... That is my idea, whats yours? please let me know what you have made or your ideas for your purse .... I bought large clip frames so mine will be like a little clutch bag more that a coin purse. I believe you can buy chains to attach so you can put it over your shoulder, but I have not looked into that properly yet. Do you know if that is the case?
Anyway enjoy your Bank Holiday and I will be back here on Tuesday not Monday as going to enjoy my few day break in Devon. It is much needed. Have a fabulous long weekend...I am having a really lovely time and the weather is behaving! shhhhhh
