I made a couple of little purses from jordy's famous tutorial for a wedding I'm going to be in.  I made the handles from strings of beads and attached them by threading them through small buttonholes (with a large, flat bead on the inside) the bridesmaids' dresses are blue with white satin trim, so I made all the purses out of white satin, with a blue lining and blue beads for the maids' purses.

They should be thrilled with those!! They are absolutely lovely!  The blue lined one is the best !  Good job . How hard were they to make in satin ? I'm thinking really hard .

They weren't too hard.  The key is to use lots of pins so that the fabric doesn't slide around.  The blue lined one was hardest, because I wanted it to have the lining start inside instead of at the edge, getting that seam in the right spot took a couple of tries.  Oh and that's the seam I left partially open to turn it right side out.  On my first attempt I left one of the bottom corner seams of the lining open, but it was so small, that when I turned it right side out, the satin got all wrinkled.  Any hints on how to iron a teeny little purse?

Oh, man, that's cute.. If only I was a bit more elegant....

If the beads on the handle aren't plastic, you could probably stick it in a tumble drier on warm with a damp hanky - that's what I did with a tiny bag once. Worked okay. Or you can hang it in the bathroom while you have a hot bath or shower. Works for silk scarves...

I saw this amazing little iron at the fabric store.  I guess it's made for quilting and applique work.  It is a long skinny handle with a little iron part on the end.  The actual iron part is a bit bigger than a quarter.  That would be perfect for stuff like this!

YOu can get a sleeve press if the little iron doesnt work. Its like a tiny, little ironing board that you put on top of the big one, and its in the shape of a sleeve so you can get into little crevices.

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley

Gosh they are cute! I love the idea of a string of beads for the handles.

Thanks guys!  Both for your suggestions and your compliments.  I'll definitely be trying out the shower steam (duh, why didn't I think of this?) first, since it involves the least effort.

I'm also going to make a little wedding day emergency kit.  Currently i plan to put in it:
safety pins
needle and thread (white and blue)
clear nail polish
that double sided lingerie tape stuff

any other suggestions?
