no instructions that I know about. I made the purse the size of the cigar wood, and went from there. The sweater was a size 4 little girls - that dictated the size pretty much. The lining needs to be pretty firm. I used cotton fabric with iron-on batting. The flower is made from the neck. I sewed it to grey ribbon and gathered it into the flower. The top of the purse where the zipper is, was the sleeve, & part of the other sleeve became the pocket inside. Every sweater is different. Just have fun!
