  • Handbag Charms

    I am just in the process of trying to come up with some good ideas to add to my site and i'm thinking of making some fabric handbag charms. If you were to purchase some what 'theme' would you go for? I am already thinking along the lines of small animals and fashion related items, but would anything else float your boat?!
    All ideas welcome Thanyou

      Definitely the animals, or something angelic, angel wings or something like that!

              I think they are called trigger clasps or swivel clips - I bought some a couple of weeks ago because I fancy a go at bag charms too! Not to sell though, just for me and my pals!

              Yours sound really nice - I like the idea of angels/fairies too. I found a brilliant tutorial for making tiny wire and bead angels a while ago, I have probably got it in my favourites if you fancy a go! They are cute! I know you said fabric, but if you are swayed. .

              Have fun! Oooh and piccies when you're done pretty please!

                    Here you go:

                    http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/lotsa-l...els/index.html

                    They are lovely arent they?

                    I made mine much, much tinier than this with less coils as that many would have looked too much on a tiny one. I used a small 8mm (I think) peach glass pearl as a head, and some of the tiniest seed beads for the halo. It was a bit fiddly but not too bad. I think my little angels were probably only about 5cm or less!
