I've read tutorials, watched videos etc but I still can't work out how to nicely fit this type of purse frame...

http://www.elmwoodmagic.com/ama/med/purseframe.jpg

I've made two change purses so far, both lined and both with this type of frame but my gluing is horrible and I hate it!

it doesn't sit right, the glue goes all over the place.

I've tried a gel and a hot glue... hot glue I ended up with burnt fingers and stringy bits all over the place and the gel glue meant the purse kept falling out of the frame before it's dried so I ended up with glue all over the fabric.

can anyone let me know where I'm going wrong please? it's driving me insane!

The gel glue was messy because it needs to dry a bit before you start pushing the fabric into the frame. Try it again, but let it dry for 10 minutes or so before sticking it in there. You need to be generous with your glue, but drying it will give you more control over it.

thankyou so much! should I add it to both the frame and the fabric (like when wallpapering you need to glue the wall and the paper) or just the frame?

Glad to see this. Ive had trouble with those frames, too. I got some at Daiso (japanese dollar store-type place) the instructions said to use pliers to pinch the frame around the fabric as well as glue. It looked horrible.

I will forego the pliers and try letting the glue tacky-up a bit.

Thanks!
