I should have shared these photos a few weeks back - I took part in a purse swap with my online stitching friends - I made for Jan and she made for me
This is the purse/case I made for her from wool with a little applique on the front - I made it with the intention of maybe storing glasses, but decided to send her a small pair of scissors and a tape to go inside her purse - and I wrapped it all in a gorgeous fabric.
This is the gorgeous purse that Jan made for me - I just love it and love the fact that in a previous swap Jan made me a bag from the same fabric - it will come in very handy when I fly to the USA next week - I always love to have a spare purse to put all my foreign coins in. I also received this cute little note book that is already packed. Thanks Jan.
These types of purse clasps are really so easy to stitch onto any purse - one tip you must always start in the centre of one side - stitch towards the left then back to the centre - then out to the right, then back to the centre.That way you should have your clasp centred onto your purse.
Use a very strong thread such as a demin thread and as you stitch push the fabric up into the clasp with your needle. I stock 3 different size clasp's in the shop - prices start at $8.50
Hope everyone had a great weekend - I will be back tomorrow to share with you my sewing from the weekend.
