Unique and Custom Handbags - from my hands to yours!
Very cute. I think I'll put it on my to do list. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing your pleated purse tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew! I've been thinking about making my own pattern for a pleated purse, so it's great to see someone else's process. Your purse looks great!
Looks great! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I'll definitely be bookmarking this for later.
Great job on the pleated purse, thanks ever so much for sharing it!Janelle ;-)
Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I can't wait to give it a try.
Would decorator fabric with no interfacing work as well? Thanks for sharing this!
Sarah, You know, I have done it both ways and I just happen to like the sturdiness that iron-on interfacing provides. It isn't stiff like normal interfacing but it really holds up over time. If you use sturdy fabric inside and out your purse will look fantastic at first, but they do tend to become floppy over time. Either way, it is a matter of person opinion - so feel free to try it both ways! Let me know if you have any other questions!
Thanks so much for the tutorial, I was looking all over the web for a pleated purse tutorial because for some strange reason I really struggle with pleats. I'll definitly try yours!
I did it! This was so satisfying and easy. Thank you for such a great tutorial. Here's a link to a photo of my pleated purse on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/maryconner/3075268700/
Thank you for this tutorial. It was easy to follow and I love the results. I made a number of purses for gifts both for Christmas and birthdays this year. Here is a link to the pictures of mine.http://duringquiettime.blogspot.com/
Hello,What a great tutorial. I'm new on sewing nut I decided to try. At the end my bag was not similar to your bag but I'm satisfied with the result :DThank you again.Plese visit the link to see my bag inspired in your tutorial.http://www.flickr.com/photos/84278215@N00/3646714287/Elisa
Thanks a lot for this tutorial.It's the best tutorial I've ever found on the web for a pleated tote.Through its guidance I was able to produce 2 beautiful totes for my 2 teenaged daughters although I am new to sewing.Thanks again and looking forward to making new projects under your guidance.
I just finished mine! thanks for the tutorial :) I tried it with the flat bottom, I really like that version, gives the bag a bit more shape.
Thanks so much for this great tutorial. I kid-sized it (8 x 12 for the first piece I cut) and it turned out beautifully. http://www.flickr.com/photos/daveandsue/4879094603/in/photostream/I teamed it with a cute coin purse from another online tutorial: http://www.flickr.com/photos/daveandsue/4879703782/in/photostream/
I made another one of these - this time from a wool tweed. Turned out great! Here's a link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/maryconner/5180934706/Thank you!
Lovely pattern and unbusual. Cant wait to try it. Dot UK
Great tutorial! You have NO idea how musch i've been looking for smth like this. One question though, any thoughts on how I could attatch a zipper instead of a magnetic clasp?
Very nice purse. I plan to make one or two right away. Thanks.Joy
Thanks for a lovely idea, I have just completed a small purse to match a dress I have made for my grandson's christening.
Humairah, I have the same thing in mind. It seems as if it should be possible to leave open a portion of the inner edges of the "cuff" piece when you install it and just slip the edges of a zipper inside before stitching them up... but that might demand more precision than I trust myself to achieve! :-) I think I may try making the whole purse, then stitching the zipper in by hand on the inside edges of the cuff, and using embroidery thread so my stitches can show on the outside... perhaps with a bead or a tiny button in each stitch! I figure if I obsessively reinforce my handstitching three or four times, it MIGHT be enough to keep the zipper in place...
this is an amazing tute, I am thinking of making one for my baby sister for xmas! I am hoping to find a cute coin purse tute to go with it.Thanks heaps!!
THANK YOU!!! I just made a cute ballet bag for my little girl. So much cuter than a dumb square tote:)
Very nice purse, I was looking for a Celtic idea so made this bag with a plaid fabric and looks great with the pleats. Thanks for shareing
Very clear tutorial. I am an experienced sewer, but I usually work to a purchased pattern. I mean to try this.
