Yay  Grin I finally plucked up the courage to make a purse using a purse frame. I thought these were going to be really hard to make but once you make the pattern for the frame it's really easy to put together. I managed to make these purses all in one night. The only problem i encounted was the glue, it stunk to high heaven, i nearly gassed myself in my room that night!
Anyway here are the pictures, comment/criticism are welcomed.

These are so very sweet   Smiley

Do you have a source you can share for the frames?  I have never found any that fit my budget, ie, they seem kinda pricey at the places I've looked at in the past.  Yours are inspiring me to want to find some...  

Thanks for sharing  Wink

I love them!  I have always wanted to try a frame purse.

I love the fabrics, especially the echino one in the last pic - one of my fave fabrics ever!
