I wanted to make something pretty and useful as a gift for my friend’s birthday so I have whipped up a small purse for her jewellery as she travels.
She wears a lot of slim rings and lots of small earrings so this little purse will be ideal for when she travels. And when she’s not travelling it can double nicely as a card or money purse.
Plus I love the (true vintage) fabric.
I placed two buttonholes on the top flap and attached the ribbon on the bottom flap so you can fasten the purse closed by threading the ribbon through the buttonholes.
I acquired the floral fabric from my Nan.
Ribbed ribbon from the haberdashers.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
