Description

These are for 2 of the special little girls in my life.  The pink one is going to my granddaughter and the yellow one to a niece.  (Don't worry Siffstitch, AS will get one when she is bigger).

I saw the pattern demo at a local fabric shop and thought it would make a sweet Easter gift for.  I had the "peeps" fabric, and added other stash to it.

So cute! I am sure the girls will love them! Did you do a fancy stitch on your machine on giant rickrack to embellish?

I love these! Wonder if I could get one of these done in time for the Easter Basket.... if not this year, definitely next year! Thanks for sharing.

These are so cute. I have a five yr old granddaughter who would like one in yellow; hmmm wondering if I have time before sunday.

Rebecca Thanks smile
Yes, I used some decorative stitching on the ginormous rickrack. It was tricky, because I was changing directions and that made some of the stitching wonky. I'm still a newbie at sewing machines with all this fancy stuff!

Next time I make these, I'll use a zigzag stitch to attach the bias binding around the edge. There are reasons I didn't show a photo of the back of the purses, but the little girls won't care if the stitching is less than accurate/perfect.

I've added a tutorial link. It really is pretty easy to make. Even easier if you don't do the strip piecing and just cut a back and front from a piece of fabric. I didn't make my own bias binding. I bought the wide double fold.

Those are adorable. That is an adorable picture of those sweet rosey cheeked babies on your profile.

The strip piecing is precious and I'm sure you are their favorite grandma!
I'll have to save this just in case I ever get a girl grandbaby.

My granddaughter is close to 2 and a half and is the perfect age for this. But I also think my 5 year old niece will love it too.

Did you pin it? I don't know much about pinerest, but I am curious. Is there a place I can see it? Thanks.
