Two pretty purses that I made using the same method as for these make-up bags that were made a while ago. The only difference is that the body of the purse is quilted and the bottom is not square, otherwise, it's almost the same.
The first purse I made was the one with the snap fastener. As you can see, it has a more rounded flap and the bottom corners. Even though I really like the look of the snap fasteners, I find them a bit tricky to use.
The reason is that they are quite hard to snap and even harder to open. It feels like you are going to pull and rip the fabric while opening the purse. Maybe it's just me and I got a faulty pack of snaps but still my favourite are magnetic snap fasteners.
I really like how easy they snap and open and that when you use magnetic fasteners, you can leave the front of the flap plain or use a button like here or a fabric yo-yo like here or anything else to decorate the flap with.
I was lucky to have this fabric with tiny love hearts in various colours in my stash. What a perfect match for the fairies!
So as the ribbon that I used for the tag. Tiny hearts to keep up with the theme and a little birdie of the same shape.
I am glad that I made the second purse and fixed up all the small things I didn't like in the first one. The second one has a more squarish flap, slightly less rounded corners and a magnetic snap. The flap has a better shape and feel to it thanks to Vilene H630 lightweight iron-on wadding that I was lucky to get from a local store. Yay! It's my new absolutely favourite product.
Have a productive, creative and a very happy weekend! Larisa xo
