I'm new not only to this site but sewing as well.  I apologize for the idiocy but can you please tell me the sizes of the squares that you cut your material?  Also, how did you add the zipper?  I'm lame.  Sad

Thanks SO much for your help!

Hey, don't call yourself names!  We all had to learn somewhere!

My purses are between 4 and 6 inches.  I also cut lining and padding the same size.  As for zippers, well, those are not easy!  Here's a thread about adding zippers.

Here's a great one about how to add a zipper to purses:

I hope those threads help.  If not, I can try to help you.  It took me a while to figure out how to add a zipper to a purse that has a lining, but you could maybe start with purses that don't have lining.  It's easier.  You might also look online for sites on how to add zippers to purses/pencil cases/make-up bags.

These are gorgeous! I love the images you've chosen, and how you have put one on the inside. The beauty of really good crafts is in this kind of detail I believe.
I am going to try my hand at one of these - thanks for the post!

just a note about using the images from ephemera now - this is the info from their website:

"PLEASE NOTE: The images on this site are embedded with an invisible digital watermark and IPTC metadata. While we don't own rights to the original public-domain materials used to create these images, we do own the scans we've made they represent a considerable investment in equipment, source materials and labor over the past five years. Please, no borrowing."

i would say that pretty much answers the use question.

Wow, those are fabulous! I really like the Cuban one.. great idea of putting the pictures on the inside too.. hmm.. you've got my crafty little mind storming now. My poor boyfriend. We have no dining or living room now. Just my craft domain.   Grin
