This is my first ever dabble with frames and gluing [oh, the horror...]

I lost my coin purse, and didn't have a spare one, so I decided I just have to make myself a new one! It turned out quite big, although this is actually the smallest frame I found. The fabric is a scrap I bought for about 2 dollars from a really expensive fabric store - usually it would cost me a small fortune! You gotta love scrap hunting  Cheesy

anyway, enough talk: the purse!

and a better view of the fabric:

and the other side [the pattern grows smaller!]

aaaaand finally, the lining! Which is why I think it's very picnic-like:

That looks like it was made in a factory. Everything is so neat and tidy. I love that fabric and can see why you grabbed it. Great job.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

This is very nice. I've always wanted to try these kinds of purses, I even bought a frame. Was it hard to get the fabric into the frame? I'm always afraid I would get glue all over the frame on the inside - yours is really neat.

This looks so well done, and the fabrics you used are so cute together.

Ahhh thank you so much everyone!!!   Grin

It wasn't very easy getting the fabric into the frame, but it's easier than you'd expect; you just have to watch out super carefully that no glue gets on the fabric [except for the glued parts obviously]- but get as much as you want on the frame. It's impossible to peel it from the fabric, but it's very possible to do so from the frame. My frame was a hot glue-y mess before I peeled everything off - since I rubbed all of the excess glue on it so it won't get on the fabric.
Also, using clipper scissors or any sort of a similar small tool is really helpful - you can use it to gently shove the fabric into the frame. Hope that helps!

So adorable! The frame really elevates this beyond a zippered coin purse. I love it!
