Here is the first frame purse I made, using Madame Samm’s pattern– great instructions and the shape of the purse is adorable! GENIUS!
I am in love! The size (3” frame) and shape make you smile.
Unfortunately, this was the only 3” frame I had on hand. I would have made 10!
One of the cutest things I have sewn !
I couldn’t stop at one and I used a few other frames purchased a few months ago. I drafted my own patterns for these.
I think you have to make a few until you find the perfect shape and size.
I did not press the seams at all – I should have done it. I was lazy!
The hand stitching part (attaching the purse to the frame) was the hardest part for me -it took me forever! I broke 3 needles working on the first purse. But it wasn’t my fault! Bad needles! But at the fifth purse I started to like even this task! Practice is good!
With so many beautiful fabrics and frames available, imagine the possibilities!
My hubby liked them a lot. I think he was about to say he would like one for himself!
I have gifts for my sisters! And the little one is for the enjoyment of 2 year little fingers!
