I love bead work - the fabric is so lovely once you have mastered it.
These purses are fairly quick to make, are absolutely fabulous as presents and you can alter the look quite easily once you master the art.
The pattern includes written instructions and a chart for the blue purse on the right of the photo. It also includes charts for the other 2 purses, as well as written instructions for a plain (no beads) purse.

It is easy to adapt the pattern to working in the round. This has been done successfully by ClaireAlthea, so do read her pattern notes.
You simply flip the chart, start with Judy’s Magic cast on then work in the round until you need to split for the purse frame. It cuts down on sewing up, and can look neater.

The pattern is written for a sew-in frame, with basic instructions. Please follow the instructions for your frame on how to attach or sew to the frame.
