1 Tape measure 1 pair of scissors 1 stapler (with staples of course) 1 piece of fabric of choice (not shown here) 4 sets of 1" grommets and settin...
Get some fabric that measures at least 13x26. This will be your lining. Fold in half, measure and then cut.
This is a very simple shape....measured out to be 11" long from top to fold (open, this would be about 22" long), 12" wide on top, 8" wide at the base...
Open your fabric and lay face side down. Cover your fabric completely in your base color. Remember to over lap by about 1/8" or so. This doesn't have ...
Do this from end to end on your fully opened piece of fabric.
Simply tape over your base color with whatever color you have chosen your purse to be when finished.
Trim all of the tape away using your fabric edge as a guide.

I found it easier to do both sides of each panel from top to just at the curve then I stapled the very bottom of the curve and worked my way out towar...
To make this stronger I simply went along on both sides of the purse and stapled along the already sealed edges.
Take a strip of tape and cover your staples. You need to do this not only because it looks better but it will save you from scratching up your fingers...
Just turn your purse outside in and work out the bumps, push out the creases and the folds.
Make the holes big enough to fit your grommet. Use the directions on the package on how to place them, It's actually pretty simple I have never used g...
Do this on both sides
Try to get them even on both sides.
The craft stores have different types of handles you can buy for your new bag. You can even go to your nearest 2nd hand store and purchace and old bel...
Inside each end there is a plastic bead about 3/4" round. Taped securely so the end of your strap won't come off. I tried tying it but duct tape isn't...
