Style Stitches Bag #7

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.

    That bag looks prefect for your girls! If I make something for one daughter, I have to make the same for the other too.
