Clasp Purse Tutorial
I was gifted a lovely Clasp Purse Kit from a dear friend of mine. This is a John Lewis Product. I have never made a purse before so was quite excited to try this new project. Even better having a kit with the pattern and instructions already provided. I was a little disappointed though as the instructions were not very clear and I had to back-track a couple of times to get it right. Though the end product was worth it.
I thought I would share with you how I made this. I have took a photo of the original instructions so you know what the main instruction was. The points to keep in mind are that when sewing down the sides in Step 2 make sure you go all the way down, not as it shows in the instruction diagram. I followed the diagram and it left a gap in the purse, so you must sew all the way to the bottom.
The photos below show the steps I took when following the above instructions. You also have the choice of using your own fabric and cutting them to the pattern size if you want something more unique!
Now I have to decide who gets the purse! Both my daughters are eyeing this product up haha!
