Hi Purse People...

I came across this purse, and want to make it:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/76644890@N00/379871083/

But the link to the free pattern is no longer live:
http://www.craftsandframes.com/DeptFabric/freetwistBagPV.htm

Does anyone here have the pattern they could send me?  Or do they know of another link to get it?  Or is it here in the tutorials and I just can't find it?

Thanks in advance.

Jennifer

Where was the link to the pdf file?

The only clickable link I found goes to the now not available "craftsandframes" link.

If you scroll down the page, there is another link called "FIRST TWIST INSTRUCTIONS" that works.

Sadly, it's not the same bag... the one you cite has strap handles... the one in the picture is gathered together with an interesting tab top drawstring, and that's what really showcases the "twist".

But thanks for taking the time to help!

Sorry it didn't help.

I put the link into the Wayback Machine and the page comes up.  Not all the pictures work, but all the written directions are there.

Wow!  Thanks so much.

Now I'm getting a lot of the images, but some of the numerical text comes up with a "?" instead of a number.  I THINK it's happening when there is a fraction, which I guess would be 1/2... any thoughts?   Or does it appear different on your screen?

You have to change the code.

Click on View (it's the same on Firefox and Internet Explorer), and under Character Encoding/Encoding, click on Western/Western European.  All the fractions should show up.

I'm using Safari... but I'll look for something similar.

Thanks so much for all your help!

I've seen that style in a quilt magazine.  And made a modified version.


for scale it's about 12 inches on a side.

I'll look and see if I can find which magazine it was in.
