This weekend coming I will be attending a small market to display some of our weaving work from the studio. I have quite a bit of left over woven materials and I was wondering what small objects I could make in the amount of time I have left, using the materials I have at my disposal.
I came across this cute, free pattern on Craftsy made by Deby from So-Sew-Easy:
I was thrilled and thought that this would be the perfect project for all of those rests.
Luckily my purse frames arrived just before the weekend and so I spent the weekend making these babies:
Deby provides a really neat tutorial to go with her pattern and she guides you step-by-step through the process.
For this project, you only need a few pieces of material to get you going, some interfacing and of course some purse frames.
My biggest "Problem" area of the project:
The frames I found readily available to me were 8.5cm and not as pretty as the ones Deby uses.
To get them onto the finished sewn purses needed a lot of coercing and my fingers are feeling pretty sensitive this morning (that is why the yellow one is not quite finished yet :))
Besides that, the project was really fun and I enjoyed making the purses. I love how you can combine any fabric to create astounding results!
I just love the contrast of the outer fabric and the lining, it gives the purse such a "Wow" effect!
So, if you are looking for a small project to uses up those little scraps of fabric, why not give this project a try?
They will make amazing little gifts!
See you soon.
