Fold-over clutch, metal zipper

Fold-over clutch, metal zipper
I'm hot for fold-over clutches. I love Clare Vivier's gorgeous leather ones (aside: what I wouldn't I do for a stack of leather and a belt driven Juki?) and I'm spying them all over the (interwebs) place. I have a personal policy of not spending more than $50 on a bag. I ruin them. Elizabeth, on the other hand, is my role model. Supplies: Metal zipper, at least 12"Exterior and lining fabric, at least 13.5" x 24" and a bit more for zipper bindingFabric for binding Cut both your interior (lining) and exterior fabric to 13.5" x 24". You'll need to cut your zipper (with it zipped) to 11.5". Next, you'll make the binding for the ends of the zipper. Cut two pieces of fabric 2" x 3.5" or so, I like to have it a little long while I'm working. Open the strip back up and line up one long-side raw edge of the binding with the raw edge of the zipper, right sides together. Next, attach the zipper to the fabric. Use a zipper foot to stitch closely to the zipper. Next, bind these two raw sides.

The Little Apple Seed: Anthro Knock-off Bag with Printable Pattern Today I am going to share with you a tutorial for an Anthropologie knock-off bag. I fell in love with it when I first saw it, then my eyes popped out when I saw the price tag! $498.00 for a purse, it is darling but certainly not worth that much! I knew I could make my own adorable version and spend way, way less! I created a pattern for the main shape of the bag which I have for you to print at the bottom of this post. Just click on the picture and it should print out on a regular 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.

Thanks for all your input. I should have listened to my gut - that was the bag I intended to make available in the first place, but then I started playing around, resulting in the orange one. I do plan to revisit the design of the orange one, but in a larger size. It really is a cute bag, but too small for me. I should have used a tripod to take photos of the two bags because in the photos I posted, the aqua one looks larger, but in reality both bags are about the same size.

Everyday Tote I’m someone who needs a large bag. I don’t understand how people can carry dainty little purses! Where do they put their stuff?

It also needs to be sturdy, easy to carry, and good looking! The Everyday Tote fits the bill… and all of my things as well!
