|My mix of pins and clips...just because that's what I happened to grab! I usually like pins for this, so that I don't have to unclip when I'm sewing and risk it moving.|
Back at it: If you haven't done it yet, fuse all the stabilizers according to the instructions. Then we get to start sewing!
Instructions for the single color handle: fuse it to the interfacing, then fold it in half, wrong sides together, and iron.
Open the strap back up and fold the edges in to the center crease line (wrong sides touching), then iron again,
The trickiest part of the sewing (in my opinion) is the second set of top-stitching on the gusset. I have to really work it and take my time to get the little purse to feed in. I turn it inside out, so my top thread is the 'good' side and pretty much wrestle it into submission. The good news is that this is a small purse, so it's only a little bit of wrestling!
Once the outside is done, you can take a little break, or just power on through!
