Made a little coin purse to start with.Strips of wrapper chain sewn together.Zipper was hardest to figure out.Strips are covered with clear packing tape.







Going to try a purse next,like this one...If I can figure out how to make it curve ???Looks like it might be smaller strips at the top.



I spent hours last night looking for tuts and heres what I found...

I think this is great and am wondering how on earth you got a zip in. Brilliant!  Thanks for the links too.

Thanks for the links I've been wanting to learn how to do this for a while now.

As for the curve, looking at the pic, it looks like they change the size of the pieces to make the weaving increase and decrease.  Larger pieces at the bottom tapering into smaller pieces at the top seem to be what makes the curve. Smiley
