Purses With Pictures On Them?

Category Clothing

I was wondering if anyone knew how to make the purses with the pictures on them. I would love a purse with James Dean on it, but the ones at the mall are very expensive. Any help would be appreciated!

I think Kinko's has a process for making an iron-on transfer from your picture.

Go to your local craft store and get a cigar box,handle,and anything else you want to decorate it with.
Get whatever picture you want on it and you can do a search online for directions.
You want to decoupage,which is really easy once you get the hang of it.
Good Luck!

Use document protectors and make a purse out of them. They can be sewn together on sewing machine. Linda

There are washable colorfast fabric sheets for your ink jet printer (www.junetailor.com). You can print whatever you would like on these and sew them into a purse using strips of fabric around the pictures like a frame.


I found the fabric sheets at Wal-mart in the crafts department.

I have some magazine purses on my website you can look at for example:


You can go to your local copy center and have pages laminated and then sew them together. Have fun!!!

I've seen the purses using the laminate covering. Do you know if i wanted to sew some on a machine, is there a special thread or needle required that would make the sewing go earily?

There is a company in Arizona that makes purses out of photos. The website is hazelfunk.com but it doesn't look like the site is done yet. I bought a purse at a boutique from the company.

I found a deep white wire basket curbside in perfect condition, originally from the
container store, and now stuff tissue into each purse, placing them carefully in the basket side by side according to color, hanging the bulkier shoulder strap bags on one of my chrome wall hung shoe rack loops. It works VERY well for me, all neatly inside one of my walkin closets. Give you any ideas

Check out http://www.flashbagsonline.com
Their bags have images covering every panel of the bag and very cool stitching over the whole thing. They are definitely different than many of the other "mag bags" out there. They might be able to do James Dean???.....

On the net at henrietta's handbags You can purchase panels made of the picture you send them to make purses. They also have patterns to make different size and types of purses to use the panels on.


The patterns are $20.00 , and you get the panel along with . You make the purse out of your own fabric.
