Pick a stunning little purse frame or put in a zipper instead. . A good size for your coins, a few sewing supplies, emergency make-up or a cell phone for a little girl, teen or the trendy lady. Your friends will be amazed you made it. It looks so complicated but is really so easy. The PDF file includes instructions for two different styles: a metal frame that looks so professional or a zipper on a curve that looks equally stunning. Make it with a zipper or a frame, a wristlet, straps or a chain, make the bee fly upward or make him fly downward. Anyway you do it, it will be fun. I have a soft spot in my heart for the little girls in my life. My little girls are soft and sweet one minute and busy as bees the next, They may be sliding in home plate one minute, jump up, dust themselves off and leave the field sporting a frilly little purse. Sewing with the girls is great fun and when it is a fun project to make for them even better! Make a couple of Wee Bee Bags and give them as gifts. They are sure to be a hit.

I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.
