Something Very Different

The purple wool has all gone now, I am sure you'll be pleased to know, so now it's time for something different.  The knitting is still going, but in a different colour, but I did have time to do something different.  After the small purse I did a little while ago, I thought I'd like to try them again, but on a bigger scale.
 I bought a kit from U-Handbag, and I must say, their instructions are fantastic.  They are very clear and concise, with plenty of photos.  It is a fiddly process getting the fabric body and clasp together, but once it's done, the results make it worthwhile.
I also bought a purse clasp, so the next stage is to draw up a pattern to fit the clasp.  If I can work that one out successfully, there may be a few more purses in the making.

Very nice. We all need different things to work on.

You did a nice job of that. I've never tried one of those, but I always assumed it was tricky to get that clasp on neatly.

That's lovely! I always wondered how hard it would be to make something like that.

Very well done. ditto tricky stitching well done. Like the fabric.

Very nice. I've never tried a hand bag or purse.

Very nice, I haven't done any of these. I'm working on bags too but not with a closure like this one.

I like this one too! I have done these clasps for a little purse and they are tricky.

I'm a sucker for anything with a Parisian feel so absolutely love this. I've bought from U-handbag and am a huge fan.

I love how you mix up your different projects to keep us all guessing what's coming next.

This is lovely. I always think that those closures look very tricky.
