A Little Purse for my Little Lady

I have to finally come around to the fact that my toddler is no longer a baby and turning into a little girl! I went to my local groceries store where they have a section of clothing/accessories, etc. She saw a adult sequined skirt, ran over to hold on to it and wouldn't let go. Then we walked by some little bags/purses and she grabbed one of them tightly and I had to yank it out of her hands. She seems to be becoming a really girly girl which is going to be a bit of a headache for me since I'm more of a tomboy.

Anyway, I thought that it might be fun to sew her a little purse as a X'mas gift this year. I think she may appreciate a gift like that. So I rummaged through my fabric scraps box, found some remnants from these self-stitched pants, some cream canvas scraps, and a thrifted zipper and made her this little cross-body bag:

She seems to like this cat character at the moment so I just did some quick satin stitch embroidery with my old mechanical sewing machine. The bag may be a bit big for her right now but I am hoping that she would use it for a couple of years. I hope she likes it!


  1. She will just love it! You are very clever to whip this up ... J

    1. Thanks Linda! Hopefully she won't get tired of this cat character too soon.
