Yep, I'm thinking of doing the same to make bigger flowers. They're a little small.

You could stick matchsticks into cork, that would make the same sort of frame! I'd like to give this a go, they look very "vintage"!

I have even contemplated buying cheap clasp bags and taking it apart for the clasp... has anyone done this before? Is it possible?

I do that all the time!!
I buy bags with stuff I want and put them apart...
so it is possible....
I love your bags!!!

I was thinking of sticking kebab (or satay) sticks into a styrofoam board.

Does anyone have a good sewing book to recommend? I need to know basic things like how to attach a waistband to a skirt? How to have openings so that I can get in and out of clothes?

I will post the pattern for the clasp purse soon, I just found it.

I have both the Butterick / Vogue "Step-By-Step Guide to Sewing Techniques" (Pub: Butterick) and the The Complete Book of Sewing by Chris Jefferys (Pub: DK). The Complete Book of Sewing is far superior with good photographs and detailled instructions of every technique you could think of. The Vogue / BTK book isn't quite as clear and uses illustrations instead of photos, so it's hard to work out what's going on sometimes.

I think I'll check out those books. They're quite pricey right?

Btw, I found this link on how to make those loom flowers without a loom, using a yoghurt lid instead.

They're not so bad, about 20 (say... $47?) but well worth it!

I'm going to go and buy some yoghurt and give that tutorial a try  Cheesy
