Turn over and adjust the corner nicely. Top stitch the hole. You can use by hand or by machine. By hand will be nicer but this will be cover by the clasp so it won’t be seen.

Step 8 :

This part is quite challenging. Once you have your glue in, attach the clasp to the fabric. You have to adjust it until it stick to the glue, than use the small piece of paper cord to slot it in.

Use a plier to clip the clasp gently, to make it tight so that it can clip on the fabric.

I’m using this paper cord, it comes in a roll. You can also try look out for packet or small portion in your local crafts store. They also comes in different thickness. Do check out for the size. If you are doing small coin purse, get the thinner ones.
