I made that for the daughter of a friend. I made her mommy a jordy with flap and then decided that I could make a smaller one (completely different in style, though) because kids love to have what their mommies do, right? And then I made a very tiny one for her doll Cheesy but don't have pics of that.

Here it is (bit wonky... but in person it looks slightly better than in the pictures)

It's made of an old pair of jeans, pink vichy fabric and white lace. The pocket in the inside came from the back of the jeans, it's quite narrow but will keep handkerchiefs or small things.
Another picture:

(I just took a bit of the lining/strap fabric, cut out a circle and draped the lace around & zigzagged. Quite simple.)

Comments appreciated!
Do you think the flap being so short makes it look "wrong"? I didn't have enough jeans left... I'm a bit insecure about that.

I think it didn't turn out 'wrong' at all. Any girl would like this  Grin

 Where did you find wonky? I think the flap is just the right length - it would be just heavier if it was bigger - not good for little girls;) It's great!
