  • How to make a paper clutch. Tips & Tricks For Cydney W.'s Collage Handbag - Step 1
    Step 1

    To get a congruent curved corners, a circle stencil like the one seen in the picture, would be extremely helpful, just line up edgues to edges and then ajust it to your liking and then repeat with your other corner or corners depending.

    Although, another way it could be done is drawing a rounded edge on the corner of a piece of paper and then cutting of the excess and using that as a template.

    Also a pen or marker will work best for marking your edges, pencils don't work to well if they're just the regular graphite ones.

    Use colorful or neutral(such as white, navy, grey or black) verses browns or an earthy color depending on the colour of your collage.

    I choose the teal because it'd blend in but pop out just enough for my liking.

    If you don't have a large spool of your chosen colored thread or you're like me, a little lazy, you can use an already spooled bobbin for the lower part of your machine. (I'm not even sure of the term for the lower bobbin goes, it's been a while since I've read a manual.)

    Also, when sewing the long sides, depending on the shape you're going for, it could be smart to wait to sew the sides until you've decided in which fashion you'd like it to be folded to reduce the amount of sewing you do and to create a cleaner, more polished look.
