Saori weavers progresses in the studio and my cute Saori "prom" clutch

Loving the progresses of  my  Students at Saori Santa Cruz , so here they are ! Starting with lisa, I dropped by her home to help her with some threading questions and checking on her progress.

I want to share my fun new project , I call it my "Saori Prom clutch /purse."

You can weave your own cute bags  yourselves  and  the accesory shoulder brass chains I will have them in my  etsy shop  in a few weeks so keep checking in.(  I just recieved a few so here is the direct link to my etsy shop) no sew cute heart clutch/bags No sewing and what a nice gift these would make! This was my first try and I used what ever glue I had on hand 
( the purse frame has what correct glues to use in the list of materials in the directions you should use there suggestions)  I am totally hooked on how adorable they are . What you think?  I happened onto these frames a few years ago but never got around to using them. I  thought up using my saori weaving fabrics TO TRANSFORM THEM this past week end.  If these  had been around back when i was in high school then  I would have carried one of these  to my senior prom for sure . I will use this one hold my hair clips or  straight pins ,needles as sewing kit or business cards …..
