i’ve been saving and stashing all sorts of purse patterns to try out, and now there’s someone’s graduation coming up so i finally have an excuse to use a pattern! and it’s going to be a metal frame coin purse. (check out anything handmade‘s english translation of sewlover.com’s tutorial for metal frame purses.) but for some reason jo-ann doesn’t carry round metal frames, they’re all rectangular-ish. and all the patterns that i have collected are for round frames. well, who says you can’t fit a round purse into a rectangular frame?! (i had to squish it a bit around the corners while i was sewing the purse on). you can’t tell though, right?
update jan 2, 2013: i just found on sewlover.com a pattern for a rectangular frame purse.
