#throwbackthursday: Frame purse...frame of mind

I am so busy right now sourcing and preparing fabrics as well as taking care of custom orders and sooooo as not to be called out for lack of post (you know yourself :p) I've decided to bump up some old old post I did way back when...I like to look at it as the era when I was not afraid to take risk hehehehe...cos I am so chicken now like you will not believe lol!

So, read the post as it was written then. 

I have been fascinated with frame bags for a while and of course I though that you had to be a guru to know how to actually make one but thanks to u-handblog who in her post "Purse frames de-mystified (aka. Laundry Day clutch purse) Tutorial" shared the secrets of how to actually construct one, and after a couple of disastrous attempts (see here) I finally got the hang of it... So, I share with you my first two SUCCESSFUL attempts, whatcha think?
















It's funny how after you've scaled a particular hurdle you start to think "so what was the big deal?" yep...that's me being very big headed hahaha.

Update:
Unfortunately I never got round to making more frame bags but fingers crossed that I will stop procrastinating and use up the frames I've been hoarding all these years lol! Would love to hear your thoughts though. Thank you so much for stopping by and may your reality be far bigger than your dreams.

Xo.
