How to Add Fringe to any Purse Pattern

(affiliate links in this post)

I had a customer ask recently if I could add some fringe to one of the purses I make a lot, the Bella Bag (Pattern by ChrisW Designs).  I was hesitant at first, but I just had to yes!  I make at least one of these bags every week, so to have a chance to mix things up a bit sounded exciting.

Quick Tip Saturday #1: Adding Woven Fusible Interfacing

I've decided to add a new series here at GCC called QUICK TIP SATURDAY.  At first I was just going to make it sewing tips, but decided that may limit me a little.  What if I run out of sewing tips after this one??!!  Anyway, here is my first "Quick Tip"

How to Add Purse Feet to Your Handcrafted Handbags

I love purse feet!  Most of the time, they probably don't actually DO a whole lot to protect the bottom of the bag (let's be honest), but they sure do look cute!!  I want you to be able to add them to your bags too, because they are SO easy to install.

I'm excited to share with you my 2nd attempt at the Sugar and Spice Handbag from Christine over at ChrisW Designs.  It is a perfect bag for the intermediate sewist who is looking to learn a few new technique, like...

  • adding rivets
  • using hardware
  • adding a zipper closure
  • adding piping
For me, I was looking forward to adding the piping, as I chickened out on my 1st Sugar and Spice Bag.  It was actually easier than I though it would be.  Let's check it out!
