A little over a year ago, I designed this little girls purse for my granddaughters. My friend, Suzanne @ Strawberry Patches encouraged and helped me make it into a pattern to sell. I've shown them here before, but since I made the bag this week, thought I would show you again.
This week I made 6 of each of these. Suzanne sells the pattern and the purses for me and I am very pleased that they sell well.
This one was from a new fabric line I spotted at Strawberry Patches and just had to try. I find myself looking at collections to see if I can put 5-6 fabrics together to make a cute purse.
This one I used all scraps from birthday dresses and an Easter Dress. It was so fun knowing I was using something I had on hand.
I have probably made close to a hundred of these and I never get tired of making them. Something about piecing the squares is like piecing a quilt, coordinating the fabric to look good. It is an easy pattern. In the pattern is a larger one too for us big girls. I add pockets inside and out to make it more big girl friendly.
The smaller ones, I love to fill with goodies all little girls love.
It is a good gift and my granddaughters have given one to many of their friends.
If you would be interested in a purse or the pattern to make your own, you can e-mail me. I haven't tried to sell them here before, but since I have never gotten around to setting up an Etsy store, thought I would offer them just this once. The pattern sells for $9.00 and the purses are $20.00.
You can also go to Strawberry Patches for both.
