I am interested in personal supply swaps.  I have tons of fabric and scrapbooking supplies. I am interested in sewing notions and trim, especially any heirloom sewing supplies.  If anyone wants to trade a smocker/pleater for fabric or scrapbook stuff, I'm in! I'll also trade for things on my wist.

I made another bag today but did not do the applique since I was making it for my cousin's birthday party which was tonight.  I hope my instructions will be easily understood and if they are not, let me know! This bag is really quite easy to make and can be adjusted many different ways.  If you make one I'd LOVE to see your results!  It's 1:00 AM.  I'm going to bed and will finish this tomorrow.    It's done!


All seams are 1/4".  The sizes indicated above include the seam allowance.

All the cutting instructions are listed in the picture above.  Choose your fabric according to what you like. 

Step 1   Cut your fabric.

***  When you cut the crown tops I would make the pattern on a piece of paper first and draw the shape of the crown.  The smaller you make the crown points the less you will see the points once it's finished.  I did make sure the side crown points (A) matched up with the front crown points on (B).

With the shoulder strap you can make it any width and length you want, keeping in mind that about 3" total will be lost after sewing it into the crown seam.



Step 2   Sew (A) and (C) together.  Press all the seams while making this purse. 



Step 3   Sew (B) and (D) together.  Press seams.  Sew (BD) unit to bottom (E).  Press seams.



Step 4   Sew 2 side panel (AC) units to the front panel (BDE) unit which does NOT have the bottom (E) sewn to it.  Press seams.  You will now have 1 panel with 2 sides sewn to it.



Step 5   Sew all four sides of the bag together STOPPING 1/4" before you get to the bottom so you can attach the bottom (E) piece to the (C) and (D) pieces.  Press seams.  ~I hope that is understandable.~



Step 6   Attach the bottom (E) to the bag making sure each corner is sewn together all the way.  I had to go over each corner once again just to make sure.



Step 7   Turn your outer bag with the outside showing.  Sew your pom-pom fringe over the seam of the bottom part of the crown all the way around the purse.  Fold the ends of the fringe over so it doesn't fray.





Step 9   Once you have the outer bag and bag lining made you will put them together with the right sides facing each other.  Pin the crown points in place.  I added the red dots on the sides of the purse to show where your beginning and stopping points are when you sew the lining to the outer bag.  (There needs to be an opening to turn the bag right side out and then you will also attach the shoulder strap in those open areas.)  Sew the two bag pieces together following the crown points all the way across the front of the bag, beginning and stopping at the red dots.  Do the same for the back of the bag.  Once again, leave the sides open for turning and attaching the shoulder strap.  Clip the downward and upward points to make it easier to turn and reduce on bulk.



Step 10   Turn your bag right side out and put to the side.  Place your pom-pom fringe on the front side of the shoulder strap (F).  With the pom-pom fringe pointing towards the center of the strap, fold the shoulder strap over the fringe.  Pin the fringe in place making sure the long strip piece (sorry, don't know what it's called) is at the seam and sew the entire length of the shoulder strap.

Put a large diaper pin at the end of the shoulder strap and push the diaper pin through the inside of the strap turning it right side out.  Take the diaper pin off and press the shoulder strap.



Step 11   With the purse facing right side out, press the crown points, all the way around the bag, turning the seam allowance under on the Side Crown Points (A).

Pin the shoulder strap in the seams of the Side Crown Points (A). 

Sew a decorative stitch all the way around the top of the crown points.  This will help stiffen the very top of the crown points and will sew the shoulder strap in place.


Step 12   Attach your buttons to each crown points for the crown jewels.  Sew your snap or Velcro to the inside of the center crown point on both sides of the purse.

You're finished!  It's that easy.  If I did not explain any part of this pattern very well please PM me and I'll try to fix it.  Thanks for all your kind words and I would LOVE to see the purses you made with all your improvements and embellishments! Grin

This is such a nice gift!  You did a great job!  i used this tutorial for my 4 YO DD's Valentine card.  I made 16 of these with all of the kids names on them.  The part that i didn't like was having to be gender neutral on the colors.

I would love to see your design! 

A friend of a friend asked me to make 6 of these purses for her but she choked when I told her it would $15 a bag.  Needless to say, she is not going to have me make them.  The supplies cost me about $9 to make the second bag.  It takes me about 3 hours to make the purse so that's $2.00 an hour.  Talk about cheap labor!  I was a little irritated by the way she smirked at the price.  Oh well.  She could make them herself if she was diligent enough to do it!

I looked for more cute fabric remnants today to make a set for my DD but nothing was cute enough.  I'll have to try again later.

I don't really have the best fabric either right now. My budget is OOBER tight lately so I need to use what I have.....which isn't really the best for a little girl. And I don't think I'll have clips or snaps.......I'm not that good yet!!!!

$15 is awesome for that!!!!!!! I had to pay that much for a yard of the fabric I got. Ppl who don't craft think things can be thrown together in no time for no money which is SO NOT the case. I feel your pain hon!

3 hours! This will take me 3 weeks! Crap I just noticed those adorable buttons! I need to go find some in my colours! Such great details!

$15 is a real bargain! but I know how it is, it would be the same way here with prices.

That's because nothing is as cute as your daughter   Smiley

Your friends friends' reaction is exactly why I usually regret telling people I can sew- they always think it's easier/cheaper than it is and expect you to make them stuff at your own loss!
