In with the new...



We thought that the silver ones were so cute, we now have Teeny Tiny swivel hooks in Antique Brass colour.

I'm yet to have a play with them, but we also have these snap-together plastic grommets coming soon. Stay tuned for more news and a shop update with these, folks....
And out with the old..... I cleared out my box of purse frame samples (from the manufacturer)...
...and seconds (slightly scratched, mostly) purse frames. I've bundled them up and bargain-priced them. They're all highly usable for OFM (Only For Me) purses or for test-runs if you're new to purse frame purse-making. The faults are mostly VERY slight - and you can examine before you buy.
Unfortunately it's not worth going to the effort to individually photograph and price them for the website, so I'm just letting you local gals know..... COME IN AND HAVE A LOOK through the bargain basket!!!!


We also have 5 samples of these 200mm Chunky frames WITH LOOPS at $9 each. Just email your order for these (or add it as a comment at the bottom of the shopping cart order).
I'm currently looking into the possibility of making these a permanent supply. If I get these, I may have to discontinue the plain 200mm Chunky frames......What do you think?

Hey Nic,
I think I need a couple of those OFM purse snaps, send me an invoice via pay pal and pick me out a couple. Am I being a bit to cheeky??

Yes please to the antique brass swivel clips! Shall collect some from you next time I see you?

Those plastic grommets look interesting Nikki. I'm think drawstring bags and backpacks?

Just regarding the the plain 200mm chunky purse frames - I would hate to see you discontinue these. I quite like them and I find them easier to use than your other purse frames because the depth of the metal means a little more maneuvering room when gluing and crimping. Hope that makes sense.

And just to confuse you more I do like the idea being able to buy purse frames with loops.

Loved the clip. Felt like I was in the studio with you! Didn't quite cut it so will have to come see you soon. ox

I have been looking for the metal purse frames all over here in the USA and can't find them except at very high prices. I am dieing to try them out. So would you be willing to sell me a few and send them in the mail? I don't really care which ones. I have paypal account. Just let me know.

I would love to try some of those snap frames but have yet to find some in Canada. Will keep searching.
I did want to share with you though the bag my daughter who is 10 and myself made for her friend for a birthday gift. We used the grommets and they were soooo easy to use. http://dreamscapestudio.blogspot.com/2010/07/grommets.html
This is the link directly to my blog post. Would appreciate your feedback and I know she would love it too if you commented. Purses and totes ae my favorite project next to baby/infant clothing. So thanks for all the info on the interfacings for bags.
Hugs from Canada

Please keep the 200mm chunky frames WITHOUT the loops!

Unless of course you could find some with the loops that fold inside the frame when not in use.
