I am LOVING snap purses! They are so much fun! I bought THE PURSE CLASP BOOK by, The Zakka Workshop to learn how to make these adorable bags. This book came with two clasps and Zakka Workshop has video instructions to follow as well through YouTube. To say that I have become obsessed with making these purses is a bit of an understatement. I have been learning this new technique and now creating my own patterns. Here is the first mini-purse that I made from the book.
The fabric is called BUTTERFLY DANCE by, Sally Kelly. I love the brilliant colors! Here's the inside of the purse:
After creating purses from the book with the enclosed hardware, I needed to buy more. I found this great shop on ETSY to order more product. The name of the shop is BAGPURSEFRAMES. They are from Hong Kong, so shipping takes about three weeks. I am very impressed with the quality of the items I ordered.
Next up, I wanted to create my own design for all of the beautiful hardware I purchased. There are many tutorials online on how to do this. My first pattern was created for this adorable green bauble clasp purse.
I dug into my TULA PINK stash to create this one. Her colors are just so cheerful! Here's an inside shot of the lining.
I have a box full of more fun clasp purse hardware to play with. I am super excited to create more pouches!
