Ooooooo wheeee yummy! I love them and really like your fabric choices especially the first one with the black cats. How big are they?  Anyway I feel inspired and would love it if you would share your source for the frames as well as a link to the blog with the tut.  Thanks for sharing them

I looove these! I want one. You should make a large clutch wristlet thingy (technical term)!  Do "they" make frames that large?

I absolutely adore the first one.  It's so perfect.  You did a great job on these!  I too, fear the purse frame.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone, they really made my day Grin

I can't remember how big the bags are but I'm going to make a few more later so I'll add the measurement (& pics) then. I brought my frames from a seller on eBay called 'ahkwoksupplies', i love his shop because he sell all different types and sizes of purse frame for a reasonable price. Also try this link

She sells purse frames also but has free shipping so you might want to take a look into that.

Here's the link to the purse frame tut:

I'm not to sure what you mean but i do know they sell purse frames up to 12" long, if that's what you mean. (the one i used is 7" long)

Again thank you everyone for your kind comments, i thought they looked a bit of a weird shape when i made them but seeing your comments made me realize I'm being to critical of my work. I know i keep saying this but thanks again.

I am way to scared to try a purse with a frame.  Great job.  They look very professional.

LOVE IT! I just got some frames in last week that I have been scared to use. I have never used purse frames before! What glue did you use??

Do you, or anyone else, know if you can use recycled frames from old purses? I've never thought about it before but I've run across some interesting frames at the thrift store or yard sales. Just a thought.
