    snap bag purse

    After using the seam ripper many time and telling the dogs it's o.k. to come out from under the bed mom isn't going to yell anymore I finally figured out how to make a snap bag purse. I still need to make some adjustments I like them. They are a little noisy but I like it.

    Excuse me laughing - and I thought that it was only me that had these "hissy" fits.

    Well it looks like it was worth it - great bag.

    Looks great. Love your fabrics.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I just learned how to make these too. Lots of fun. I made them in several different sizes and even made one for a friend's iPad and my husband's nook. I plan on making some to be tooth fairy pillows and crayon holders. I use the Stanley tape for the large ones and the Dollar Store one for little ones.

    I have never seen a snap bag with handles. Is this from a pattern or your own addition. I have made a lot of them for friends for Mah Jong cards and make up etc, but yours is really nice.

    The pattern on the internet does not have batting in it. I used that pattern and then added batting and parts of different patterns I have.

    Very nice bag!

    I've made several snap bags with cording handles, but I love the way you did yours too. You're right, they can be a little "noisy" when they snap, but they sure do open and close nicely. I've done some with an old 1" wide tape and find that works really well on the larger bags. Like you, I've added batting and also done some decorative FMQ on the sides.

    I made the top with batting. I then sewed the lining rst to top on both sides. I turned it inside out. I then made a band for the top and sewed it on the top and bottom putting the handles when I sewed this seam. I flipped the band over and sewed it from the lining side. I then sewed each side inside out. The pattern I followed did not show how to finish off the band after you sew the side seams. I think I will just do an overcast stitch on them. I do need to do a couple more to make the top look a little neater. I am just trying to think of different ways to do it. Hope that helps.

    Nice job on the purse with the handles. I have the snap bag pattern on my "to do" list.
