this is my first try at purses so be kind ha.

i got the idea from rackycoo's post &tut
It's a magazine purse that i lined with some pin stripped fabric. i added some clasps so that it would close completly. I also added some wire handles.

The project of the month got me inspired but sadly i will be on vacation and in the country i'm going to computers are not always available. Since i won't be able to send it i decided to post it up and get some comments. www.morsbags.com

What was the process on it?

glad you do! i'll try to explain as clearly as i can.

1.rip out magazine pages [preferably ones w/ out to much blank space]
2. fold your pages into 1inch strips, you can chnage the measurement  depending on how wide you want them.
4. you need to cut down your pieces according to your purse deminsions. [mine was 7x9 so i cut 5 to 9 inches and 7 to 7 inches]
3. Once you have all your pages folded cover them with clear packaging tape.
4. for the first weave i glued down the intires strip w/ hot glue so it wouldnt move around. i weaved all my strips and glues the ends to keep it together.

Thats the basic idea of how to make the front of the purse. You just repeat this for the back. For the sides i cut and covered 2 7inch pieces for each side. The bottom is 2 9 inch pieces.

to join all the side i just hot glued some scrap magazine on to both pieces so that they joined right at the edge.

I hope that pretty clear.

These are great! The magazine bag is my favorite. I love the handles, and it makes it better that you can close it all the way. Awesome!

How about if you ran a stitch line with the sewing machine around the top of the purse to secure the lining?
