Well here it is...this purse took me over 4 hours to make...sigh pinning on the pop tabs takes a loooong time but it's so worth it in the end!! I love this new purse and hopefully you will too!!

PS... I recycled the left over poptabs instead of throwing them out..yay for the environment!!


So start out with a bag (hand made) or any tote bag will work...
Then buy or collect some pop tabs...i used 180 pop tabs for my bag


Pin them on


Then start sewing!! To make sure that the pop tabs didn't fall off i sewed the top of the tab and the bottom of the bag to make them more stable on the purse.

Then sew your bag together and voila!!!


I love it, i took it to the mall and got lots of compliments!

I think you should make one too... Cheesy

Woww..how did that not kill your sewing machine? How did you get the needle to not come down on top of the metal (which would break it)?

lol nope my machine didn't die on me.  I just set it to the largest stitch length and carefully sewed the tabs on, sometimes i'd have to hand turn the side wheel.

Well yes i did have to sew very slow...but it wasn't too bad cuz it sure beat sewing them on all by hand.  anyways the bag isn't all that big its about 12 inches wide and 12 inches long.
