My Handmade Bag Business Update
The launch of my bag business is getting closer and this weekend I’ll be super busy sewing up bags for influencers with whom I’ve partnered with for the launch of the bag business. Also, on Wednesday I’m getting my new toy; aka my FIRST industrial sewing machine. A DREAM COME TRUE. Though it’s not the machine I’ve always wanted, I’m happy to have it until I can save up to buy my dream industrial machine.
I’m only going to use this industrial machine for top-stitching cork and the main reason I went for it because I wanted to use a thicker thread for making bags which are not compatible with my domestic sewing machine. SUPER excited to try this machine out!

Making a clutch purse with metal frame is pretty easy. But due to all the different varieties of metal frames present, everyone needs to make their own pattern first to sew the purse.
There is no specific metal frame purse pattern available.
Depending on the manufacturer, each metal frame is designed differently.
Therefore, you would need to first use a white paper to make your own pattern based on the structure of your metal frame.
In this video, I will first show you how to make your own metal frame purse pattern, add seam allowance to it, sew the metal frame purse and finally add the metal frame.
