Scroll down to see the other bags I’ve made from this book! They’re cute!
I haven’t participated lately in the Sew Alongs for the Amy Butler Book because they really weren’t calling to me. But this month’s was so easy looking, how could I say no!?!?
It was simple construction and whipped up really fast. My daughter needed a coin purse, so I was making it for her – of course my other daughter wanted one as well, but it was no big deal to make 2. Cute inside (although I probably should have made it all pink in there so you can see things better).
As suggested over at My Crafty Crap, I didn’t include the pocket – what’s the point in something so small?
I think she likes it!
I find that if I want my kids to actually use/wear what I sew them, it helps to have them involved. This time I picked out about 4 fabrics I wouldn’t mind using and let them pick their favorite combo. Of course, they both chose the exact same thing. If I were a nice mom crafter, I would have embroidered their names on them like they asked – but I was lazy. The zippers are different colors, though – so they can be told apart.
