When the purses are open, they look a bit like those chattering teeth novelty gags - but in a good way! :)
Here are your printables. A tutorial follows.
3 Above, gluing the purse band. Work the band round, making sure the the band end aligns with the end of the last tab.
4 Glue a reinforcement inside the purse, as shown. Pierce a hole through all layers.
6 On the inside of the purse, tamp the band down with a bone folder. Next, apply the remaining side band to the other side of the purse.
7 Next, glue the pull tab onto the underside of the centre front of the purse, like so:
The horsehoe purse is now finished and looks like this:
8 Time now to make the removable inside purse. You need these pattern pieces:
If you want your purse to be lined with print on the inside, then you must print and cut out two oval Purse Body pieces.
10 Turn the purse over and position the closure band across the purse front, as shown. Hold the band in place and turn the purse to the back again.
11 Glue the band tabs down on the purse back, leaving just a little bit of slack in the band.
13 On the purse front, score a fold line just above the pocket.
14 To close the purse, insert the flap under the band. Prime the flap first by rolling it to give it a gently curve.
15 Tie the tag onto the purse with a piece of craft thread (you'll have to pierce or punch holes in the tag and and purse).
16 Insert the mini purse in the bottom of the horseshoe purse. You're done!
Make a bunch!
