Itty Bitty purse: Ducks and Harley Davidsons

I made this really tiny purse to take to the University of Oregon Duck football game this past Saturday. The stadium has new rules for carry ins. If your bag is not see through, the maximum size is can be in 4 1/2" X 6 1/2"  This one ended up being 4 1/4" X 6 1/4".

And it is really small. Too small.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... I am working on another that will hopefully be the exact legal size, but will also have a depth of 3/4". That way you can actually fit something on the inside of the purse, not just a couple debit cards and license. 

I could not even fit my glasses in this!!

I put in a back pocket to fit my phone, that was perfection!!!

I already have had requests for this little bag. I don't think they realize how little it really is.

Once I get the pattern down to where I like it, I may make a few to sell. We will see. I am planning on making a Oregon State Beaver bag for my neighbor for a gift.

 And I am currently working on a Harley Davidson bag/purse. I think this one is going to be a winner with all the wives and girlfriends of my husbands motorcycle group.

I am waiting for some purse hardware to arrive from Amazon. I would like the strap to be adjustable. That way, you can have the bag hanging low, or shorten it to hide under your leather coat on the bike!

I just love the Harley Davidson fabric for the purse on the right. And the coordinating fabrics!!! It is sweet!!!

I will post photos of the finished bag. My next one will be the beaver bag!!! Just waiting to get the beaver fabric in the mail, I couldn't find any at Walmart this past weekend.

So that is it for tonight. I hope you are all well. Happy quilting!!!! Martha


  1. I like the yellow and green bag. I do understand about being too small though. I have a purse that I can fit my phone, keys, and 3 cards into. I tried putting a check book in, and then couldn't get anything out.

    At least your stadium allows some purses that aren't clear. I have heard that stadiums here only allow clear and I wondered what women do with unmentionables.

    1. That's exactly what happened when I tried to get my glasses in the bag, you pull one thing out and everything comes out. I'm hoping that it will pass inspection with being 3/4" deep but still measuring 4 1/2" X 6 1/2". With that 3/4" depth you could fit more in it comfortably.
      I am awaiting some orange zippers from Amazon and then will make a Beaver bag for my neighbor with the new measurements.
      Didn't think about unmentionables but you are so correct!!! How embarrassing would that be???
