Thanks for listening to me moan the other day :-) it was just one of those days! Today I managed to get in five hours of mostly uninterrupted stitching in the kitchen, it was bliss!
Before my brain properly had time to process the facts, I signed myself up for the In The Frame Purse Swap over on flickr. I'd never made a frame purse before :-o
After five hours, I can now say, that I have made my first frame purse, and I love it :-)
I used the Fortune Cookie Clutch pattern from Lisa at U-Handbag, I bought the frame, glue and fleece from there too. Super speedy delivery :-) I got a little carried away with the lovely look of this purse and ordered the pattern without taking note of the curved seams I would have to sew. Oops. When I realised, I did think about using a different pattern but this shape is so pretty I wanted to give it a go. I'm glad I did.without too much swearing :-D
Fabrics used are various yellow prints from Central Park, Quilt Blocks and Pezzy Prints. FMF eyelet in green for the sides/base and a Valori Wells print for the lining.
