Kristina and I are co-hosting the American Girl Doll Mega Giveway (your choice of doll and cool wardrobe!) and wanted to make something to give with the doll.
What girl can get through life without a purse or 12? So we decided to make a purse. We surfed for a good pattern and found this one from Karatootie!
First I picked the cloth (Scrap stash!) - jean (of course) with this cool plaid for the inside (plaid is hot for next year) and to dress it up, this cute scrap of cloth with the pink butterfly for an outside pocket.
Next cut your pieces per the pattern - try to make sure your extra pieces (the two pockets) are straight - I used a ruler and still had a hard time lol.
Using the instructions, assemble the pieces together with the straps (I used more plaid - hey I like it!)
Next sew the butterfly pocket to the outside of one jean piece (don't sew the top!). Sew the little jean pocket to one of the plaid pieces.
sew your two halves together and walah!
Add some decorative stitching along the outside just to dress it up a bit (I used pink to match the butterfly). And Fini!! Enter and you might win this purse (with a doll, wardrobe and more!)
Thanks for reading! Hope you go out today and wear some plaid!
