I finished another bag for my Mother-in-Law.  She wanted three of these for Christmas, two with red ribbon, one with silver.  She takes my sister-in-law to the Nutcracker every year, and they like dressing up.


Excuse my messy table, I wanted to post ASAP!


The old gift card shows the scale.  You should also be able to see the pattern pretty well.  Only the pattern is fuzzy, the rest feels like canvas.  I'm not sure what you would call it, she gave it to me.


The inside has a long pocket split into two that can hold credit cards or driver's licenses.  The bow is sewn on the top flap, and the magnetic snap holds it closed.  I've tried using the ribbon to keep it closed, but that's too hard to open and close.

Thanks for looking, and comments/questions are always welcome!

That's really cute! I would use it as a wallet, since I tend to use huge purses. lol

Have you made the one with the silver ribbon yet? Are you using the same material for that one, or will it be different colours?

Thanks!  Yeah, I'm usually either carrying a diaper bag or a wallet, not much in between.
The silver one is going to be the same material, just a different ribbon.  I have to get more snaps before I can make more.

Thanks!  I'm thinking I might have to make myself one, too.  I love it when people give me more than enough fabric!

I love that little purse. I would love to make one for myself.  Could you explain how you made it? Did you use pattern?.

I used a pattern I made myself, but it's fairly easy.  It's basically an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of fabric with two end corners rounded.  I used the thickest interfacing (sew-in) I could find and slid that between the lining and the outer fabric.  Fold it in thirds and sew up the sides.  The hardest part was attaching the pocket and ribbon, but that just takes some measuring.  I'm sure if you played around you could get it right.  It's really not that hard.

How do you keep your ribbon from fraying on the ends?? I got some ribbon glue that is supposed to stop fraying, but it tends to make the edges darker?? Any suggestions??
