Sew Sweet-a purse for my Grand~daughter

I made the cutest little purse for my little grand-daughter Hayden and gave it to her yesterday!! She loves it which makes me so happy!!!

Trying to get her to pose for me was pretty much impossible!!! Too many things to see in Nana's backyard!!!

I searched for a purse pattern and found it here!! The Pattern is by Stitched by Crystal. It was so easy to make, her directions are awesome!!! Thank-you Crystal!!!!

So here is how I put this little purse together. I wanted it to be glitzy, so I used all leftover satiny fabrics and fabrics that I have either found in yard sales or were given to me.
This is all the fabric I had for the body, and I love it, so I had to make it work.
Close up below.
The tutorial-I printed it out to make it easier.
All my pieces cut and ready to assemble
Seriously, the instructions were so easy to follow and the purse went
together beautifully!!!

I had a very small piece of the purple sequin fabric so put
it in the front. Just that little bit of flash for my girl!!
The purse is also lined!! Perfection!!!
Sew Sweet, and I found this old button that matched
Cute purse for a Cute girl!!!
If you have a little girl in your life and she needs a purse, this is a wonderful one to make for her!! And as you know, a girl can never have too many purses!!!

Take care, Happy Quilting/Sewing and keep those needles sharp!! Martha
