Note: For some reason blogger is turning this pic on it's side. I've tried about 10 times to get this thing the right way round and it's not playing ball, so you'll just have to tilt your head (or the computer screen) I'm afraid!
The purse pattern I used was created by the lovely Lisa Lam, whose book I own, and who I've now met in real life thanks to Craftaganza (and yes she is super lovely). I also used her free purse making tutorial which is really handy. Check out her shop's blog, as there's loads of free tutorials and stuff on there.
The type of frame I used means you glue the fabric into the frame. This isn't too tricky but I did manage to get the glue everywhere, mainly because I was a bit impatient. The instructions say you should wait 4-5 minutes after applying the glue to the frame before you attach the fabric. The reason for this is the glue goes from gunky and messy to tacky and easy to handle. But me being me wanted to crack on and so a gloopy mess was the result. It's ok on the outside but the inside isn't great.

If anyone has any suggestions for how to get rid of the glue from fabric that'd be great!
