      I got these from an Etsy seller. but there is a few sellers on Etsy and so many different kinds of frames!
      Nettie also mentioned eBay, in the comment below.

      the most of the fabric I used in this project is made by Etsuko Furuya, and her collection is called Echino. I got them at a local fabric store(the best one ever!) when I lived in oregon, but you can find these online(Etsy etc…) :)

      it was relatively easy until I got to the assembly part. assembly was a bit challenging because I didn’t have the right kind of pliers.
      hope you’ll find some sellars on Etsy or Ebay who ship to Hungary!

      hey, thanks for the comment!
      you can find a lot of sellers on Etsy. just search under ‘purse frames’.
