Another frame purse

21 Jun

Since attending a frame purse workshop at the FQ Retreat, I’ve become slightly obsessed/addicted.  I made this one yesterday:

I drew my own pattern using the frame I had as a starting point and then made the fabric portion using the same technique as with a bag and turning it the right way out through the top (which is then inserted into the frame).  For the exterior I used this technique which works wonderfully and seemed so much quicker than any alternative (other than buying preprinted patchwork fabric).

So next month I’ll be running a workshop at Arrietty on Magdalen Road in Exeter.   It’s a new shop selling a selection of local artists pieces, vintage haberdashery items and homewares with beautiful things collected along the way.

They are running a number of workshops; beginners sewing, crochet, knitting, kids craft clubs and even a ukulele workshop! Visit their facebook page or follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with workshop details.

I’m entering this purse here:

  1. Where do I purchase the purse frames. Do you have a website where I could purchase?
