Frame purse

Frame purse beginners sewing workshop

This is a brilliant, sophisticated beginners project but you do need to be able to confidently use a sewing machine.

This frame purse is a gorgeous purse bag that is perfect for make up because of the way that the top stands open with the use of the internal frame. In fact the sturdy opening makes it perfect for a huge variety of uses and I use mine for all manner of  uses including sewing projects and my crochet.

This is a great beginners sewing project as you can build your skills using interfacing and fusible fleece which give structure to the purse and you’ll learn how to sew and insert your wire frame too.

We’ll supply the technical bits; the interfacing, fusible fleece and frame, you just need to bring the inside and outside fabric and your zip.

Please note that bookings closed 7 days prior to ensure that we have adequate resources.
