Girl's Rag Purse

I made this rag purse for my granddaughter for her birthday.  I had taken her shopping earlier in the week, but woke up the morning of her party and decided I wanted something for her to unwrap, so I made this purse at the last minute.

I cut:
  • 10 - 4 1/2" squares out of the main fabric 
  • 10 - 4 1/2" squares of the lining fabric (both are light weight denim) 
  • 10 - 3 1/2" squares of batting
  • Handle: 1 -  34" x 2" (finished width is 1")
Sandwich your squares, wrong sides together with batting in the middle.  Sew an "X" in each sandwich from corner to corner.  When assembling your purse, make sure your seams are on the outside. 

I glued velcro on for the closure. 

I filled it with some gum, Tic Tacs, money, lip balm and tissues with a matching cover that I made.  I love making those tissue covers.  Very quick and easy.  Great way to use scraps and add a little extra to a gift or stocking stuffer.
