Hi there.  Yep, using too much flux causes spitting an smoking of the soldering  iron.  Instead of painting on the flux with a brush, try a Q-tip, but dab it on a cloth just before applying it to the copper foil.  That might give you a lighter application.  You don't need a whole lot of flux to do the job.  Good luck!

Loving the polkadots!  These are really unique.  Awesome job!
The screenprint camera purses are quite nice, too.  You are talented!

Beautiful!  Lovely colors and great designs.  This makes a fabulous set.  My oldest daughter is not into buying Vera Bradley stuff in sets...purse, matching wallet, makeup bag, cellphone case, etc.  She should learn to sew and do these things herself.  Thank you for sharing the pattern names!

Very cute!  You are as "bad" as me...I've made a purse from placemats, 2 purses, 1 tote bag, and a headband from dish towels in the last few weeks.  Who uses this stuff in the kitchen anymore!??  Yeah, us!!

My husband would say..."Oh, that's nice."  He says that about everything.  It's hard to get a really emotional response from a man about anything crafty!

I just made another purse for a friend's bithday present, so I'll post some pictures.  Then, the next time I make another, I'll do a tutorial.  It was really easy and very quick because you don't have to use a pattern, you just measure and cut.  I like EASY!!!

What an awesome idea!  Maybe there is hope for all the skirts I've outgrown and can't part with!  Thanks for sharing.

Okay, I'm new at posting, so let's see if this works...

I found a bundle of Martha towels at K-Mart on clearance, 5 for $4.00 and bought them because I loved the colors and prints.  I made a purse for my 13 year old daughter and she actually carries it to school!  She usually turns up her nose at my creations!

I used 3 towels for the purse, lining, handles, a large outside pocket, and 2 inside pockets.  With the other 2 towels I made a smaller purse for myself.  I've never had this much fun with kitchen towels before...ha!ha!!
