I've been wanting to make a frame purse for ages, and I also knew I wanted to combine these fabrics. It still took me a few weeks of thinking to finally decide on this design. I wanted to use both fabrics on the outside, but just could not come up with a nice design. In the end I embellished the grey faux leather with seams in light blue, and used the blue flowers as lining.
I used a tutorial by Lisa Lam from U-handbag for instructions on how to make a frame purse. Let me tell you this: it's not as easy as it seems! She is not to blame though, I just went about it to quickly. She writes to be generous with the glue, and so I was. Within a few minutes there was glue all over my fingers, the fabric, the table... Made me feel like being in kindergarten again. I also glued the frame on before checking how it looked. I had to pull quite some stunts to get the lining right after that. Especially with this little coin pocket in the middle, which wasn't in the tutorial. I can't even begin to explain how it worked out, but luckily it did in the end!
