Crafty Crafting!

Been busy lately trying to make a structured purse. This type of purse is difficult to make because it has to hold its shape while freestanding. My first attempt turned out only OK, but I went and asked some purse-makers today and should be able to make it successfully now!

After the cut are some photos of my first attempt. I am also willing to record the process/write a sort of tutorial on making a structured purse if anybody is interested :)

All photos are click-able to view in full size

I have barely enough material for one more try (I cut out the pieces today), so here's to hoping it turns out perfectly!
