How are you all? Hope your week is going well. Holiday is just around the corner and I am releasing my new sewing pattern for making mini purses. I am also sending out my newsletter tomorrow and you will find out what Holiday offers Cotton & Cloud has π
The great thing about this pattern is that you can make lots of them from a piece of fat quarter fabrics. So you can turn your fabric remnants into cute little purses!
Another thing is that you can make TWO VERSIONS of the purses: flat and puffy styles. Surprisingly, puffy style is easier to make (well this is from my own experience).
The mechanics of these purses are very simple. The pattern has 5mm seam allowance. For the puffy version, you will first need to make two pleats. You will be joining both the interior and exterior pieces with the RS facing together to turn RS out so there are no visible raw edges at the joining of the purse frame (if you see what I mean?).
For this pattern, Mini Round Purse Frames are used.
For the interlinings, I used Vilene General Purpose Single-Sided Fusible (I LOVE this interlining because it’s so versatile – I use it literally for everything) and Vilene Fusible Fleece Single Sided: Light Loft (but this is optional – use it only if you want the purse to be a softer and puffier).
Fabrics used in the photo are some of my Japanese remnants as well as Kokka Ume fabrics from my shop.
