This is my favorite way to make a purse strap. Visit my website at www.HopeYoder.com for more products and ideas. Sign up for our email newsletter so you never miss Hope's helpful hints.
Cut fabric 4 1/2" wide x desired length
Cut 2 pieces of fusible fleece 1" wide x desired length
- Press fleece to wrong side of each side of the strap.
- Fold in half wrong sides together so the raw edges meet in the middle.
- Fold in half again so folded edges are even, and sew down each side using an edge joining foot and a left needle position .
- Cut into two equal halves and set aside for construction.
Please feel free to leave a comment, post to your Pinterest page. I know, you want to know where the purse pattern is to buy, right? Well, good news...My original purse pattern will be featured in a summer (2013) issue of Designs in Machine Embroidery Magazine which will include all the free directions for making the purse. You will still need to purchase our Nautical Button~Ups Embroidery Collection which can be found here.
