Boy, this purse sewing pattern may be simple to sew but it has so much potential!
I noticed this when drafting it, and then also during the testing sessions with my pattern testing team. Virtually everybody had an idea for a pattern variation and an additional use of the pattern. And gosh how many pretty purses were made in those testing sessions!
Purse Sewing Pattern - Glam Girl Purse Testers Versions
Want to sit back, relax and see them all in a slideshow? Here, compiled just for you:
I'll try to show you one by one and tell you something about each purse, so each one gets a bit of a spotlight 🙂
'It is a fast sew and economical. I think it could be a great pattern to make and sell.' said Laura Watson Yant at @sewdeluxe; she made this beautiful Glam Girl purse with florals on the flap. When designing the pattern, this was my first thought too: a bold, statement floral print for the flap. Makes a purse stand out, always.
And here comes one of the major Glam Girl Purse pattern modifications!
Lorna at @ella.marsh.handmade made this beautiful Glam girl purse in teal and blue, and she used cork with gold accents for the body, and teal cork on sides. Super creative, and such high-quality craftsmanship! But wait, not over yet:
Then she came back with more photos - she also sewed another Glam Girl purse at 80% to use as a sunglass case. Isn't it just adorable!
A Purse And Mini Wallet Set!
Trudy @trudylockhart made a set with one of my other patterns, the little Kalina Wallet, and they look fabulous together!
Feel free to check out more about the Kalina pattern HERE (make sure to check out the tester photos there too!)
Kris at @SewNotes made this pretty makeup purse. She used fabric with metallic accents - a perfect match to the metallic snap in gold! She even made a video pattern review and posted it on Youtube! You can watch it here:
Kadri @kadri_kivistik told me a while ago she planned to sew a purse to accompany her to the theatre. So she did! I loved to see her use upholstery fabric with medium weight interfacing to turn it into such an elegant clutch. I want to try this one too!
From the two interior pockets options, she opted for a slip pocket:
Quilted Clutch With Piping
And now, check out another date night purse, sewn by Elisah Lim at @madebyalley:
Creative Flap Accents
Let's talk accents! Kiran @gloopygoo used this super sweet kitty magnetic snap with metallic textured pleather - looks perfect!
Glam Girl Purse Made With Denim
Two Interior Pocket Options
Here are a few photos of the interior, to make it easier for you to decide which of the two pattern options will suit your needs better:
Option A Zipper Pocket and a large slip pocket behind it:
Option B Large Slip pocket (closed by a KAM snap) plus a card slot for up to 3 cards on top of the pocket:
So you've seen them all now - which one is your favorite? Let me guess - too hard to choose just one? When the testers photos started to roll in, I just kept scrolling through all the pretty photos - I did not get much work done that day. Really really beautiful makes!
