I cracked the code

Well sort of. I have this fun Japanese sewing book.

I gave one of the patterns a shot, I figured it was simple enough, but I managed it!

I even had to do some tricky math to scale the pattern because my hardware was a different size from what the pattern called for . . . well I think it was.

I used my fun hippo fabric I’ve had lying around for a while with a scrap swap piece on the inside. I’m super happy with how it turned out.

I’m not sure about how I handled the openings where the snap frame slides in but it works and looks good. Time to try another pattern.

Purse clutch formy things are pretty awesome, who knew?!

Ok I’ve had one of these at home for a while now and I’m happy to say not only have I figured out how to use them but I really, really like it! Now I’m on the hunt for more, which is proving to be more difficult than I thought. I’ve been to 4 stores already, sewing and fabric stores, and no luck. Might have to resort to online.

Anyhow here’s what I made, it’s officially my new change purse and super duper lovely.

Now I might have to change my change purse everytime I switch my purse/tote/bag . . . *sigh* I’ve created a monster.
