I took a fun and simple class today at my local fabric shop. We made cute little, cosmetic sized, bags that have unlimited uses. I made mine out of some sweet tractor fabric.

This is the bag in a snapped, open position.

The pattern is called Snap Happy! and has directions for three sizes, as well as instructions for making about any custom size that you would like. The fun part is the "snap" part. What do you think makes the purse snap open?

A metal tape measure, cut to fit! You cut your desired length from the tape measure and insert it into the bag casing. You pull on the prairie points on the sides of the bag and.....Voila....it snaps open and closed!

This was a fast project to make and I plan on making several of these for gifts. The possibilities are endless!
