    You can get the tape measures at the dollar stores

    Thanks....a good tip I think....use a gallon size zip lock bag and cut it to use along with the fabric lining...makes it usable for snacks..easy to wipe out and nice also if using for cosmetics
    I have made over 50 of them so far and all have loved them

    Hi! Just wondering, your instructions say to insert the tape measure to the right side. Do the numbers face the outside or the inside of the bag?? I actually made one and can't figure which way they work better.

    i'm making one right now, the numbers face the outside of the bag, as your looking at it, i'm covering the whole piece of the tape with a couple layers of clear duct tape to make it stronger, i've read where the tape will break if you open and close it alot. what do you all think? am i right about the facing of the tape, i sure hope so.!!!!

    According to this tute the numbers DO face the outside of the bag so you're right. :D

    Thanks for clarifying that. I wasn't sure which side was the right side.

    Just want to add a little note about which side of the ruler goes in and which side out. Believe it or not my girlfriend made hers and put the numbers on the inside and it didn't work. It turned out that she had a tape measure with the numbers on the outside of the concave - I saw it with my own eyes - had to - LOL - thought she just didn't understand. I wish I had taken a picture of her tape measure next to mine - one with numbers on one side and one with numbers on the opposide side of the convave. So maybe we better say to have the outside of the concave facing the outside of the purse and the hollow side of the concave facing the inside just in case someone else gets hold of a tape measure like she has.

    I've recently made a couple of these & added fringe on the outside & also a handle- one handle of ribbon & the other cording. I love them!

    Here are pictures of the 2 I made. The Christmas one has a cord for the handle & the pink one has one of left over binding. Next I'm going to try making one larger

    Electrical tape works well, because there is more flexibility.

    The only electrical tape I'm familiar with is the black flexible kind that you wrap around wires. What kind is this?
