I'm planning on making my cousins purses for Christmas. I had all the fabrics picked out and was planning on making them all from the Buttercup bag pattern. Then I realized that they might actually use them if they didn't match, they're all in their teens. So I needed another purse pattern that was easy to make and a similar size to the Buttercup. I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I decided to just make my own. I love how it turned out!I don't know why it took me so long to make up my own pattern for a purse. I make up my own quilt patterns and variations all the time. But I'm really glad I did it finally. It's a slim purse about 7"x12"x2". Now I'm looking at the fabric I got for my Birthday and thinking it would look really cute for myself. I just need to make sure I save this pattern and that I don't loose it.
