Here is some handy information on a new way to close a purse that you make from Patty Dunn of All Dunn Designs:
This is an example of a purse pattern (reversible) using the "Clicker" closure method -

Reversible purse pattern by All Dunn Designs
You can use a retractable metal tape measure as a closure for your purse! Pull out the full length of the tape and cut. Measure the width of the top of your bag without seams and cut the appropriate length - be sure to round off the edges as this could eventually cut through your fabric.
Cover the cut metal tape measure with duct tape. Make a casing to hold the tape including the seam allowances. Stitch this casing to the wrong side of the purse and see only one side to the seam. Insert your tape measure and then sew up the remaining open side of the casing - you now have a "clicker" purse closing!

All Dunn Designs are available from PursePatterns.com
