My recent new adventure in the sewing world... fabric clutchs!

I had a hard time with the glue, but it think the result was OK...  Grin

Hi all! Tanks for the comments!

Regarding your questions, bought the kisslock frames and athe portuguese fabrics at a store in Portugal, i know they will soon open a etsy shop, they already have the space, just need to  put the supplies. If anyone need the address just convo me.

I don't think I did a very good job of asking the question.  After I hit reply I started wondering if I made sense or not.

What I want to know is, how do you attach the fabric to the frames??

 Cheesy

I use textile glue, a sharp tool (like a part of a scissor) and paper cord to fill the inside frame space between the fabric and the frame.

This is how: you put glue on one side of the metal frame, start to insert the fabric clutch inside with the help of the sharp tool. Then do the same on the other side (sometimes i wait a little time for the glue to hard). Then you add the paper cord (or similar) in the space also with the help of the sharp tool. For last, you wait for the glue to hard for a few hours, them you clean the glue that attach outside the frame (i always have a lot to clean...) and that's it... no secret really....  Wink
