Metal Purse Frames & Zipper Purses

1

I had a sewing machine about 7 years ago and really got into sewing things. But, as life gets in the way and you move house and jobs and stuff, I stopped sewing and gave my sewing machine to my sister.

I’ve always wanted to get back into it and having a spare room with space was a good reason to get a new sewing machine. I bought the Brother LS14 Metal Chassis sewing machine at Christmas and it is a great machine at a really good price.

Of course now I have an excuse to get sewing supplies! I got different fat quarters, zips, threads and sparkly embellishments from Hobbycraft. I already had a lot of sewing stash but too much is never enough!

Here a few of my recent projects I’ve been making. Some metal framed coin purses which I think are so cute and then as a challenge, I sewed some zipper purses as well and found a cool tutorial on YouTubeย by Gretchen Hirsch. She’s my new craft lady crush! I need to check out her books.

Because Hobbycraft is like a sweet shop to me, I also got a plain wooden box and decorated it to keep all my threads nice and tidy. As if I don’t already have a million projects on the go!

With this new craft added to my ever increasing crafty hobbies, I’ve been rearranging my art space and put up a shelf for useful items I need to grab when I start sewing. I loved making the zipped purses as well. The first one came out a little crooked but I think I have the hang of it now, and preparing everything before sewing is definitely a big plus (instead of my usual rushing into new things and messing them up!).

I also got some labels printed of my new beetle logo from Etsy and think they look so cute as part of my finished projects. Just have to remember to add them!Mini Metal Frame Coin Purse
