Dear Friends,

Had a  lovely time in making this handmade purse using cardboard, handmade sheets and fabric 🙂

Here you can see the step by step process of making this Purse in pictorial view 🙂

  • Cut 2 pieces of cardboard “3.25 inches * 7.5 inches” and 1 piece of cardboard “2.25inches * 7.5 inches”.
  • Cut fabric “8.5 inches * 12.5 inches”.
  • Place the cardboard pieces onto the fabric, evenly space the pieces. Place the smaller piece at the end.

    Wonderful. I worked with a non-profit that has a yearly fundraiser where lovely people donate handbags they have created from scraps of this and that. The handmade work is just as delightful as yours, and I’m sure the crowd would happily bid on your handmade purse. The color palette you chose is wonderful. It pops just right. Beautiful!
