A perfect use for your own fabric stash; this Carpet Bag making kit uses an internal tubular bag frame. When it comes to security, durability and convenience these frames are hard to beat.  The frames are spring-loaded so they open (and shut) ONLY when you want them to. No more worrying about the safety of your valuables.  This kit will show you how easy it is to use these clever bag frames so you can make a unique and fabulously smart-looking carpet bag that is guaranteed to get envious glances from your friends.   When shut this bag has a neat tidy profile, but pop it open and you won't believe how much you can fit in there!  Mary Poppins eat your heart out.  Treat yourself or a friend; our purse kits make fab and unique gifts.
