I found a place to get purse frames quite inexpensively on ebay and they came in the mail last week.
I’ve looked around on the web, and it looks like you just make the purse, cram the material from the top of the bag into the purse frame, the pinch it with pliers to secure the fabric to the frame. It doesn’t sound very secure to me. Has anyone ever done this before? I would love any advice you have to give.
Now, to make up for the lack of posting this last week, let me leave you with a story I wrote a couple of months ago. Have a good weekend!

Now some of you may know that I am half Chinese. My dad is from China. Since English was not his native language, he had some irregular names for things. He would translate some Chinese words literally into English. The word for poopoo in Chinese literally translates as “large portion” OR as Dad called it, “big scoop”. It seemed very normal when we were little for dad to ask us, “Do you need to go big scoop?” Well, I had nearly forgotten about that until during swim lessons the other day, the instructors were teaching the boys to kick with their legs and scoop with their hands. Little Nathan was sorta lazy on his scoops and his teacher said, “Big scoops, Nathan. Show me big scoops!” He did what she asked, and I praised him, of course, by saying, “What a big scooper you are!” It was until the words actually left my lips that I realized what I was saying. :o)
Here he is – my “Big Scooper”
(in more ways than one, I might add).
