Jeannie Philpott asked:
I tried to make purses but had such a struggle getting the metal clasp to clip together and hold the fabric without my pliers the metal.. it was ruined by the time I gave up.. is there a special way of doing it?
bitterpurl answered:
Thanks! With the frames I use there's no need for pliers. You use a strong glue and compress the fabric in to slide it into the channel. I have a pattern on Craftsy that shows you how.
