UR Priceless Blog Hop


Today is my day in the UR Priceless Blog Hop! A big THANK YOU to Madame Samm and Katherine for putting this hop together.

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!
