I made this about a week and a half ago. I love it, I've been using it everywhere. I'm going to try to duplicate it at some point but when I first made it I didn't write down the dimensions.  Tongue




 ^ Hehe, notice the silly string. You'll never know when it may come in handy...

Um, and I have two questions.

Do any of you guys know a different way of putting in lining besides leaving a hole in the corner? Because that method works alright with smaller bags but I have trouble using it for larger bags. Whenever I make a larger bag and I pull it through the hole, it ends up all wrinkly, and my crappy 70's iron doesn't help any. Or it won't go through the hole at all so the little hole keeps getting larger and larger, yucky..  Sad

The other question has been asked before, but I need to find some of those magnetic closures for purses. But it needs to be in an actual store and not in an on-line store. Whenever I ask the people at Joann about them they have no idea what I'm talking about, lol. So, help please!  Smiley

i love it!  especially the red ribbon and the cute button.

for me, the more fabric i have to pull through, i just leave a larger opening.  after top-stitching, you would never know the difference!

i've been meaning to buy some of the magnet closures as well.  i'm going to try michaels this weekend!

At Micheals they are too expensive - $7 each.
I found some at fabricland for $2.
My local bead store sells magnetic clasps for necklaces. I am going to sew these in between my lining and purse next time - they are really strong.

I work at Hancock Fabrics and we sell two sizes of magnetic snaps, both in silver and gold.  The smaller is $.99 and the larger is $2.99.  Your purse is adorable!  I love bags that size and shape but they aren't big enough for my big wallet. Sad

I have made my own magnetic closures by just making a little magnet pocket on the inside of the lining(granted it should be a stronger lining fabric---nothing slinky) and that has worked out fine, and it is really cheapo
hope this helps

When I asked for them at Wal-Mart the lady looked at me like i had just grown two more heads, When I asked to speak to the manager she was rude.
