Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing, straight-line quilting

Pattern Description:

I created this purse for two reasons: to
use up scraps and to create a bag that is
'just the right size'. It's perfect for
carrying everyday purse contents, but
it is also large enough to slip in a few
extras, like an I-Pad and/or a small
knitting project.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 9" wide, 11" tall and 5" deep


  • approximately 150-200 skinny scraps,
  • 2 16" x 16" pieces of cotton batting
  • pre-made purse handles
  • 1/2 yard quilting cotton for the lining
  • 1 yard (x 22" wide) mid-weight interfacing for the lining
  • scraps of fabric for the pockets
  • scraps of interfacing for the pockets
  • 3/4" magnetic clasp for the closure
  • perle cotton for attaching the pre-made handles
  • heavy duty needle for hand sewing the pre-made handles
