indigo blue very kindly left me a comment asking about the fastenings I use on my purses and what the inside looks like, so I thought I would add some extra pictures. I use a popper fastening that isn't too intrusive on the design and is also easy to use yet strong (and it's a circle!). In my etsy shop all my purses have extra pictures to show all the different angles as the design goes right around the purse and I use different compimentary colours for the linings. I did spend about an hour in John Lewis (while Holly played with all the buttons and a pink feather boa) trying to decide whether to get one of the hand punches that add fastenings for you, but in the end I went with the hand sewn ones as I don't want the fastening to show on the outside of the purse. Also my purses end up quite thick and luxurious once the lining is added, so I'm not sure if the punch could cope with that anyway. I shall continue adding them by hand I think!

I love the hand sewn snaps- reminds me of a felt doll my grandmother made me (one that teaches children how to zipper, snap, button, tie, etc). These have the same playful quality. Perhaps that's why I like your work so much!

I got your message and I'd be honored if you added me to you blog list... I will do the same! Thanks.
