Little Girl Purses

S asked me to make more little girl purses to sell in her shop.  The first three I made took awhile to sell, so I thought I'd add a little more to them to make them more interesting.  So, each bag has a zippered coin purse and crayon roll to go with it.

I used the crayon roll tutorial found here, but substituted an elastic loop and button for the closure rather than a ribbon tie.  It seemed to me that most little girls wouldn't be able to tie that ribbon and I'm all for kids doing things independently.  The elastic loop on the purple crayon roll is 1/8" elastic.  For the other two, I used a pony tail elastic (a tip I think I read in Threads).

This fabric was given to me by S when she was clearing out her stash.  She was happy to see it used well.  :)  The lining is a coordinating print.

The green is brighter in real life than it shows up here.  It's lining leftovers from this jacket.

I finished these last week and just dropped them off today.  My iron hasn't been working, so I've been on a forced sewing break.  But, I have been knitting and am hoping to have something to show you soon.

  6. These are just adorable!! I am totally stealing this idea for my friend's little girls once they get a bit older. I'm willing to bet these are purchased very quickly. :)
