Hello again, I have been busy working on lots of fun things for you to make with Accuquilt/Accucut Dies. I hope you are saving your pennies for all these cool dies I have been showing you. Today is a new die. It is the Purse Die and you can find it on the Accuquilt site. Here is what the project looks like.
I have had this die for a long time but could never find directions for it. So, I decided to do you a little favor and show you how to make this wonderful little item.
So, here goes…. first, the die.
It is a two die set with a handle on the second die. I don't use the handle as this is a clutch.
1/4 yard each for outside and lining fabric
5 1/2" x 2 1/2" scrap for loop
1/2 yard for fusible interfacing. I used Pellon 911ff which is a feather weight interfacing. If your interfacing is too stiff, turning the purse right side out can be difficult.
Optional closure of some kind..velcro, snap… whatever. I didn't use anything for this demo.
Here is my fabric:
Line the back of each fabric with the interfacing and iron it on. Check the directions to make sure you are putting the correct side down on the fabric. If you want a closure, you would put it on the round side of the lining and the small piece with the outside fabric.
Fold in half again, iron and sew close to the open end.
Clip around the curves. Turn everything out and iron. Fold the seams in where you left an opening and pin. You will have to hand sew a blind stitch to close this up.
Here is the finished project again.
