I made a cute purse.
I love the prequilted, doublesided fabric available today. I used a Sewing For Dummies pattern, but adapted it without a lining for use with the doublesided fabric.
I cut a strip of the brown fabric and inserted it on the turquoise fabric.
The wooden rings were bought at Joann's as was the fabric-when on sale of course!
I need pockets, but now it's just one big open space, but was fast and I like it.
I used a magnetic snap . Those things are pretty easy to install, but seem floppy to me. I put a piece of cardboard in it to prevent the fabric from ripping when pulled open. I saw on another blog that if you treat the opening like a buttonhole and use stabilizer, then the opening won't tear with repeated use. Good idea-I just read it AFTER I made the purse!
I'd be happy to make one for you for ONE MILLION DOLLARS! You can have mine when I get sick of it!
