tools needed for Rozy and Roxy

One of the particular requirements of the Rozy and Roxy wallet is the closure. You will need a special clasp that is 7 1/2″ (19cm) wide.
The screwdriver and the hollow cutter will make life a lot easier when making these wallets in production style.

I collected some stores that sell these tools and this hardware.

Where can you source the small clasps for the mini Rozy and Roxy?

The 7 1/2″ clasp are more common

In the United States:

In Canada:

In Australia:

3DANsupplies in HongKong has them in stock. In 4 colours!

Another shop on Etsy (ships from China) is Life2creation

The factoryguy in China has them as well:

On aliExpress you can find them per 10/20/30:

Some links on Ebay:

Precision Screwdriver

To install the closure bar on Rozy, you need a precision Screwdriver PH00.  You can find them everywhere. This is a link on amazon.

 

Hollow cutter

Hollow cutter

When making more then 1 Rozy wallet, you’ll want to make the task more easy. To cut the hole for the clasp, it will help if you can use a hollow cutter. Just place the metal piece on top of your fabric and hammer it down with a metal hammer. Make sure you have a cutting plate under the fabric and that you are hammering on stone (a table will resonance too much)

  1. Hello,
    Please confirm that the dimensions of the Rozy is 7 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and that the Roxy is 7 1/2″ x 5″. This means that the width of both is the same at 7″ and the only difference between the two is 1/2″? Thank you so much. I would like to order one of these patterns but they are almost the same size according to your web site.

    1. You are correct about the difference in size. They are both 7 ½” wide. The size of the closure.
      Rozy is a slimline wallet.
      Roxy is an accordion style wallet/clutch.
      Construction of both is completely different.

  3. Hi Anne! I made my first Roxy today and I love it! Your video was so very helpful, so thank you for that. I was wondering if you might know where I can obtain some spare screws for the 19cm frame clasps? My seller only sent me 4 per frame and they need 8, so I had to “borrow” 4 from another frame. So now I need to find 8 more of each colour (silver, gold and gunmetal) to enable me to use the remaining frames. I haven’t been able to contact the seller and now I’m worried I won’t be able to use my frames.

    1. Hi Loraine, I’m sorry to hear that your seller did not provide you with the correct number of screws. Was it one of sellers I mention on my page? If so, I can remove that link, since I only want happy customers.
      I know Emmaline Bags in Canada delivers 10 screws with every frame. Perhaps you can contact her and see if she can put some extra in your package when you order somthing with her? (She has a sale for 2 days starting today)

      1. Thank you so much for your reply with all that useful information! The seller was Craft_MallA on ebay.

        I’ve found some screws that look the same on Amazon now, https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071W8SGCZ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which I hope will fit. I’ll let you know!

  4. What size oblong hollow hole cutter does this closure require?

    1. Hi Ellen,
      I would say, use the one you have that fits the best. In the sets are always over 16 different sizes, and almost always is there one that fits or is jut a little too small and then you just offset is a little and hit again.
