Mini Me Leopard Print Purse & FF




Ok, like I said, here is a video tutorial. I'm putting together a little purse for someone to add to their toybox if they like. For some reason, my camera's audio recorder really picks up the S's in this video. It sounds like I have a lisp, even though I don't. This is my first go at recording and posting, so I plan to improve things as I go along, learning along the way just having fun.



*Note*

Since making the video I've actually found an even Easier way to sew in the handles for the purse.

Before you sew together the two pieces, slide the handle in between the two layers, making sure its clear from all the sides.

Then pin the ends into the corner.

And just sew over it.  Now, your are sewing this into the short edge .  Remember that one edge has to remain open on the other side.

This way, when you flip your piece inside out, the handles will already be sewed in.  Tada - easier!
