Some purses I made a few weeks ago.
These were really easy to make. I got it down to less than an hour from cutting to sewing it up.
The pattern is called...Bright Chevron Bag
here is the link:
I am going to send two of them to Koressa and Sayra. They can use it as a day trip bag when they go visit their other set of Grand parents in Oklahoma. It's roomy enough to carry a few girly things (hair brush, barrettes etc.), maybe a book or two. Most likely they will tote their Nintendo DS around in it.
