I saw a tutorial at Craft Passion (www.craftpassion.com) the other day and fell in love with the bag she made. So I decided to try making one myself and I made this today. Cheesy

I didnt have a pattern but saw the pieces she had done up and I drew my own. As usual, Im not good with measurements so I estimated everything. Tongue

I think the clutch bag turned out ok but measurements can be improved. Tongue I think Ill try it again. Smiley

thanks! Cheesy

this frame requires the fabric to be sewn on, so in a way, the frame is reusable. If i get tired of this fabric, I can just cut away the threads and make a brand new bag with it. Tongue

I haven't tried the slotted in type, but I bought 1 of that kind of frame from the $2 shop. The slotted in kind would probably not be reusable as it requires clamping of the frame. I will probably try use it to make a purse with that one day. Cheesy

Oh, i used one of those chains for jewellery projects. you can find this at the beading section at the craft store. my bag isn't very big (the base is 6 1/4 inch) so I probably wouldn't put very heavy stuff in it. This chain is quite sturdy even though it's jewellery chain. Tongue
