hannah's felt bag.

Well, Easter was last weekend, and here I sit looking at the Easter gifts I put together for my good friend's two babies. They live in Spokane (I wrote about our visit HERE) and I see them maybe once a year. I miss being around them!

Before I pack these up and ship them off (hopefully before the 4th of July), I wanted to share the little purse I made for Hannah. I'm really happy with it! I hope she likes it.

It was so easy and fun to make. I'm thinking about putting together a little pattern and making a free PDF so readers can download it and make their own - not that it's hard, but some people like patterns. I'm thinking my 12 year old sister could make an adorable design.

Made from one square of felt for the purse and a few scraps for handles and embellishments...

Lined polka dot fabric!

The bag and handles are machine-sewn but the flower and name badge are sewn by hand.

Now if I could only make it to the post office...
