My father-in-law is really good at finding things... And sometimes I am the lucky recipient and end up with treasure! Crafting treasure, that is. On Christmas Eve, he brought me 3 HUGE boxes FULL of fabric samples from some interior design place. Gorgeous designer fabrics, mostly good sized swatches, I am in heaven!

So I was poking around on the internet looking for some small and quick projects and found a tutorial for dumpling purses. SOOOOO cute! And easy. Very, very easy.

I even made a matching key fob!


They really hold quite a bit...


And this is my favorite side. =)

Thanks! =)

I am lucky in the father-in-law department - and now the fabric department as well!

I love your little dumpling.  I may have to try one myself.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Love these.  Great work. Will have to try to make some.  These little purses come in so handy.  Thanks!
How lucky is that to have a FIL that thinks enough to bring you fabric scraps!! Smiley
