San Luis Obispo,...
I made small purses for my 12 year old neighbors. I drafted the pattern myself. Honestly, I haven’t uploaded any of my projects and I need to start. I’m starting with this one, but … I made them last summer & I don’t completely remember all the steps. They have a yoke with piping, pleated bottoms, and a bottom panel that tapers into the yoke on both sides. I hand-stitched tabs on the top with D-rings for the strap to be clipped to. After I made the purses, I put goodies in them for the girls; nail polish, barrettes, lip gloss etc. It was fun :)
