Superladies to the rescue!

I have been in love with Camelot Fabrics' "Girl Power" fabric line for some time now, and this week (while recovering from a bad sinus/cold lurgy) I finally got my wish to play with this fun fabric.  I decided to make a large-ish purse/clutch using the kisslock frame I purchased from Tomato on our recent trip to Japan, because I have always had a thing for kisslock purses.

Now if you remember all the way back to this post about my first attempt at making a kisslock frame purse, you will remember that I was pretty nervous about it and had a few struggles with tricky steps.  Being older, wiser and more experienced now, I thought this wouldn't be a problem.  But guess what?  I still had some trouble with sewing the part of the purse where the frame hinge sits!  I also had trouble getting my purse into that frame without getting glue all over everything or getting high on the glue fumes!

However, I managed it all and I am pretty happy with my results.  Perhaps using the grey colourway of the fabric as the purse lining is a bit much (it was a freebie from my supplier) teamed with the teal colourway as the outer, but having grown up with parents who loved superheroes (especially my dad!), sometimes more is more.  I am currently debating whether I want to sew a wristlet strap for this purse too.  I might have to use it a few times before I decide - what do you think?
