At TNNA San Diego 2007, a distributor of Bag E Bottoms displayed these fabulous bases at the designers meeting. They are acrylic bases, 1/8" thick, with rounded corners. You insert them into the bottom of your knit, crochet or felted handbags for sturdy base.
As we all know, its the finishing that makes the difference between home made and hand crafted. You could put the base in the purse before sewing in the lining. Or, sew a sleeve lining around the base, then insert it after the sewn in lining. Either way, you will have a sturdy bottom and a purse that will stand tall.
Kristin handbag kits will include the proper sized base in each order. If you want to order a base for any other handbag or tote, please click here to order the acrylic base of your choice, a la carte: Acrylic Purse Bases
