So (sew?) this weekend I had some free time, and an order to fill (YAY!), so here's what came of the two -

Kid's Simple Handbag #1 (for a 7 year old)

Kid's Simple Handbag #2 (for a 9 year odl)

Small Purse with Flap (just for me....for now! Smiley)

Comments, suggestions and constructive criticisms are all welcome! Smiley  On the kid's purses, the only thing that makes them for kids is the strap length.  I made it long enough to sling across thier chest, but on an adult it's too short to do that.  An adult could easily just use it as a shoulder bag, but since I specifically made these for kids, that's the name I decided to use for now Smiley

My small purse with flap turned out so much better than I had thought, but the strap isn't quite long enough, as this is one I wanted to sling across my chest.  It hits a little high, but because it's so small, it's light enough that it's not really an issue.  I'm very proud of the zipper, the only issue I had was that I sewed one side of the lining WAY too close, and now, the position that you see in the zipper picture, is where the zipper will stay.  The fabric is caught pretty well in there, and as it's a fairly lightweight cotton, I'm not about to just yank it out.  Any tips on getting it out would be welcomed!!   Huh

Thanks Smiley

I love all of them...especially the second stripey one and then the little one with the flap I adore.
