Hi Judy

am digging the purse with the frame. I especially love the fabric I can see a combo of that fabric with my African fabric.

PS i love the blob as well



ps that was meant to read blog not blob

Those are great! I may be inspired to actually use one of my hex frames to make a purse now. I have had some forever and haven't used them yet. I do think they make a great closure--I've just been a little afraid of them.


Kathi D - Do it! Not to be afraid of a little hex frame. They're quite easily subdued. The secret I think is to make sure to use lots of heavy weight interfacing in the bag. Also, I have a whole new appreciation of polyester boning - it's key to this bag because the hex frames are a little heavy and need that boning to hold the bag up. Thanks for the compliment - post your bag tomorrow when it's done ok....?


Oge - thanks! And did Paula like her bag?


Beautiful bag. As you said, crisp finish. I love the selection of the fabric too. I must try the purse frame again too!
