Happy Birthday Purse & Keychain

It’s been since January that I posted and I really owe you guys more, but I’ve been really busy with some new business opportunities. Any who, my cousin Marisa turned 16 this month – yeah Marisa! For her gift, I made her a purse and, in honor of the Sweet 16, a matching keychain. I found both of the patterns online and both were FREE. Fabric was found at my favorite fabric store – Michael Levine in downtown LA. Both fabrics are Amy Butler – who just so happens to be from my hometown of Granville, Ohio. I always gravitate to her stuff. Below are the links for the patterns, both are really easy. The purse only takes a couple hours and the keychain is super quick.

Note a couple of adjustments: Make sure you use Interfacing to make the purse more durable. For strap, cut the piece 4 inches wide and then fold in 1 inch on both sides and then fold in half – this will make the strap more durable.

    It should be noted that Ms. Linda had to endure picking out the fabric with me for this project. Not an easy task as I debate back and forth and usually change my mind about 3 times and then literally switch everything at the last minute 😉 Thanks Linda!
