This is the second purse I've made.  I had trouble with the magnetic clasp tearing the fabric but the fabric is so pretty!

It's very pretty!

I might have to try one sometime . . . though there are so many free patterns and tutorials out there, I may have to wait a bit until I get through all the free ones first!

You did a great job, especially for your second bag!

Great job!  You might want to try a little bit of interfacing behind the prongs of the magnetic clasp to keep the fabric from tearing  Smiley

I like to use the old fashion iron on patches used to patch the knees of jeans - its nice and heavy and the adhesive sure makes it easy to keep in place.

love your bag

Thank you, thank you!  I did use interfacing, which is why I couldn't understand why the fabric tore.  When I took the magnetic clasp out to fix the hole, the prongs broke!  So I got a new clasp and used liquid seam reinforcer along with the interfacing and that helped alot.
