1. Trace the pattern pieces onto thewool felt using chalk or disappear-ing ink.2. Using the Ultimate Trimmer II andthe Freestyle Mouse with the 2803Scallop Click Blade, cut purse front,back, and side/bottom panels fromthe wool felt. **Tip** When cut-ting purse front and back, punch asmall hole at each inward corner on the traced edge before cutting to give you aclean corner cut.3. Using the Freestyle Mouse and the 2801 Straight Click Blade, cut 2 bias strips of silk
(to cover handles) 18” x 2 ½” **Tip** Use the grid on the cutting mat of the Ulti-
mate Trimmer II, lining up fabric to the square, then use the ruler to find the perfect
bias. (it’s marked on the mat as the 90 degree angle)
Cut cording in half so you have two pieces 18” long.
5. Using the Freestyle Mouse, and a variety of decorative blades (I used the 2812Stamp, 2809 Victorian, 2806 Pinking, and 2803 Scallop) cut various strips of silk bias
for flowers varying from 1 ½” wide to 3” wide tapering to a point at one end. Thesecan be anywhere from 12” long to 5” long. Play with different widths and lengths,
making the wider strips longer. I like to make a handful of strips in lots of sizes, so Ican play with different flowers on the purse until I get a grouping I like.
