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 still need to figure out that whole score line thingy, but I was in a rush to get it finished.  It took me quite a few hours to figure this out.  LOL!  Baby steps! I just used my MS score board to score all the fold lines.

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!?

Some tips:

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 Put Purse SVG in the subject line.  :)  This is totally rough, so don't judge me to hard...LOL!

Until next time...
