Hello Crafty Friends!!!
I am so excited!!! I created my first purse SVG!!!! I wanted to make a friend a purse to put cash in from my bestie and I, so she could by herself one of those Miche` covers. I thought a purse would be sooo appropriate.
I started looking around the internet for a already made one, but only found some flat ones. I saw some that were similarly shaped but they were hand cut out templates. I am horrible at hand cutting, so I thought...I can probably just weld some shapes together on my SCAL2 software to get the effect I was looking for, and Voila!!!!
I got some inspiration from a purse I saw online that scored the lines to give it a puffy effect. Love it!
One of the ladies at the birthday party said she sees these in store for $8.00!!! What!?
I used floral rivets for the handle and applied them loosely so you can still rotate the handle. I put a little brad to fill up the hole. I used a button that I cut off the shank for the faux closer. (There is a little hook and loop piece that I used with glue dots.) I attached a little tag to make it look authentic. ;) I also used 2 sided dp so it looks like lining on the inside.
I tried to make a little wallet for the inside but it turned out too big. So I decorated a scrap of the vanilla paper with a little strip of the dp and that is where we wrote out our happy birthday wishes. Looks like another project to create. ;)
I am not sure how to share a file yet, another thing to learn I guess, but I would be happy to send it to you by email. (We can see if that works??) You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put Purse SVG in the subject line. :) This is totally rough, so don't judge me to hard...LOL!
Until next time...
