This is the first time I've posted one of my projects. Here are some Christmas presents I finished. They get mailed tomorrow, so thought I would take some pics of them and share them with my Craftster friends.
And I DID Enjoy !! What a feast for the eyes. What a lot of work you've put into your purses & bags. Hope your day at was a success. It appears in the pics that everyone was having a great time. I'll bet those ladies at the salon went nuts.
I have used this and they are correct. It is like Peltex and very similar to TimTex. I've had good results with this product and this company. I am not associated with them in any way, but the company and product have met and exceeded my expectations. Maybe this will work for you, too.
Some Food For Thought: These are for a craft show. These are not made for you & me. These are going to be loved and carried by other people.
So the questions now becomes ~~~
What kind of security (low, medium, high) will other people be looking for in a purse?
What kind of closure can I put on this purse that will provide that security?
What closure is going to best enhance the beauty and functionality (is that a word) of the purse?
It's hard to know what someone else may be looking for in our product. And it's even harder to put those features in a product and still be able to price it to sell. Sometimes things I want to add to a purse will put the cost up to the point where people won't buy it.
I hope I'm making sense here. I love your purse and fabric choice. I'll bet you are going to sell the heck out of these.
I would never carry a purse without a zipper closure. Never. Period. Thus, I would have put a zipper closure in it.
That is just my opinion, and my opinion does not matter. I make purses. I make small simple bags with 2 & 3 zippers in them; I make large bags with inside zipper pockets & zipper closure; I make medium sized bags with zipper closures. I guess I am pretty set on a zipper closure for any purse I make or carry.
That said, I would consider a magnetic closure on the one you have completed in the pic you have here.
