I was planning to do machine quilting this week, but all sorts of events changed how much time was available.
So, this morning I decided to make a new purse and use another snap! I used three fat quarters and made up the steps as I went along. It is very simple - like a small tote with Heat & Bond interfacing. It took a fat quarter for the bottom, a fat eighth for the contrasting color and part of another fat quarter for the lining and pocket inside.
I used the awl that came with the set to poke matching holes through the top of the bag.
Then I pushed one of the back caps with pointy part through the hole.
Then position one of the interior pieces over the pointy part. Below is the tool used to set the snaps.
Position the black side over the back of the snap and the clear piece over the interior snap piece. Then just apply pressure. I have arthritis in my hands and cannot apply a lot of pressure but it doesn't take too much. Then it is done:
Next week we'll look at this mystery project and I'll tell you what went right and what went WRONG. In the meantime I've added a place for you to put in your email address and receive notification when the next post arrives. (I would never sell it - promise.) Love to hear from you, so comment away! Thanks, Debbie
