In this video tutorial I will tell and show you how to make a purse with a flat lock. Sewing a purse is not more difficult than a regular cosmetic bag, and an unusual lock turns it into a practical, roomy purse with compartments for coins and credit cards.
Sewing a zipper, installation of the lock — all these moments are presented in the tutorial in details.
These locks come in different sizes, I will use a lock 19 cm long.
You will need:
- thick cotton for the outside of the purse;
- cotton for lining;
- surround interlining;
- flat lock 19 cm.
In this part you'll make a compartment for coins with zipper, side part, which allows the purse to open up and duplicate dublerin and woven external detail of the purse.
Sizes of details:
Main item is 19*21 cm. Cut out parts of this size from thick cotton, dublerin and bulky nonwoven fabric. Side valves are 8.5*15.5 cm. This size should be cut 2 parts of the lining fabric, 2 parts of thick cotton and 2 parts of non-woven.
Pocket for small things, size 15.5*17 cm. You need to cut 2 parts of it.
Trim for processing side seams, size 4*21 cm. You need 2 pieces.
Detail lining, size 19*56 cm. Cut out this detail of fabric for the lining and out fabric.
In this part, you will form pockets for credit cards and collect all the details together. We will finally install a flat lock.
