This is from our archives as Throwback Thursday and because of this the quality of film transmission might appear to be below our usual high standard. This is a delightful little bag where Fran has the clever idea of joining and decorating it all in one go.
All done by hand and a very clever use of fabrics as well as techniques.
Fran shows us how she creates this lovely little triangular pouch/purse and while she is beading it, she takes the opportunity of sewing it together in a single step.
Think of the variety of sizes you could make; the variety of uses you could put them to; and the variety of closures and finishing touches you could add.
and here is the one she was working on completely finished.
There are lots more designs and ideas in her book “Fran’s Little Bags” which you can purchase in the shop.
