Basic Skills Necessary:

  • know basic sewing instruction terms

Pattern Description:

Make a casual little purse, an elegant evening purse, or a special occasion purse. Just big enough for a lipstick, a few dollars and your cell phone... or whatever you just can't be without when traveling light (I can fit my glasses, too). And it makes a great gift!

Wear it on your shoulder, across your body, on your belt, or as a clutch. Just make the strap the length you want or make two loops to put a belt through. The finished dimensions are approximately 5" high by 8" at widest.
