Tutorial/Embroidery Project – Small Snail Purse/Bag with Vintage Snail Embroidery, Turning a Reversible Purse/Bag Part 17

Yesterday, we left the snail bag with this little hole in the handle and are now expected to turn this little baby inside out.

What we need to do is:

Stick our fingers into the hole…

Grab some fabric…any really easy to grasp fabric you can get is good…we don’t want to be picky, we want this to be easy…

Then…pull it through the hole.

[While I was doing all this, it was rather dark in the room (it was late evening already) and it was a mess…the photos didn’t come out clear enough to actually SEE anything…]

But, I can describe this:

The first little bits of fabric you “pull through” this little hole can just be pulled ‘a little more’…then ‘a little more’…and ‘a little more’ until we can get our fingers back into the hole and kind of take little grabs at the fabric until it all turns itself inside out in one wild mess! 😉

Here we can see that no part of the purse is left unscathed. It all comes through mashed up and a wrinkled mess! [I play the Great Highland Bagpipes and it sure reminds me of a pipe bag and the stock chanters! ;)]

The entire bag came through that handle. Really. It did.

Now, we push the lining down into the bag.

Here’s that wonky “V” or “U” seam that we had to deal with when we were sewing down the side seam for the handle. That little trick to “imagine the seam is whole” worked out well! (See yesterday’s post)

The same seam from the inside.

Now we deal with the handles.

Match up the pairing sides; long with long and short with short.

Now we are off to sew the handles and straighten out the purse!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
