It's easy! 3Dpatternpaper on etsy sale some. The only thing is that you have to figure out how to use it. Witch I didn't got yet. Undecided If you know how please contact me.

I'm looking for clasps like this, or similar to this:



I've googled and found them at around $1.50 to $10.00 each. The disparity in prices concerns me about what I'd be getting. I know I've seen some great coin purses here and just wonder where the makers get the hardware for them.

I apologize if this topic has been discussed before. I searched for the answer before posting and couldn't find it. Thanks for any help Smiley

Thrift stores. I've seen those bamboo O handles at the fabric store for $10-15, but some looking around in thrift stores will usually net me a whole bag for $2-5. Then, not only can I cut off the handles, I can use the cut up bag as a pattern.

Or try Etsy, I was looking for a different kind of clasp, but when I put "clasp" into the search terms, there were tons of the coin purse ones.

Hello! I would like to start making some small clutches and coin purses with these metal purse frames, however I've no idea how to attach them. I've done  a search on here and cannot find the answer. Any help would be great, thanks!
