Under Cover Mini Purse

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use a sewing machine
  • Read and follow a sewing pattern

Pattern Description:

Two pockets are underneath a cover that slides up and down the strap. This is a perfect purse for the essentials (passports fit, too). And it's a great pattern to use small pieces of fabulous fabrics, some of your stash, or to embellish by hand. Casual, evening or everyday, this has so many possibilities.

Included are four pages of instructions with decimal and metric measurements, six photos and pattern pieces. Also, my blog, www.sweetbriarstudio.blogspot.com, has tutorials on how to make the fabric beads I used on the purse that is pictured as well as the cover fabric itself.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 5 1/2" wide by 7" high (14 cm wide by 18 cm high)


  • Fabric - 1/4 yard (23cm) of outer fabric for purse cover - 1/4 yard (23cm) of outer fabric for inside pockets - 1/4 yard (23cm) of lining fabric

You Will Also Need:

  • 1/4 yard (23cm)of iron-on heavy interfacing
  • 43" (109cm) of 3/8" (1cm) diameter cording OR of 1 1/2" (4cm) wide outer fabric for strap
  • Optional - decorative tassels, beads, buttons, etc, for 3 "Pulls" (to hold onto when opening/closing)
