I had fun making this mini purse entirely by hand, and it’s the perfect project for when you only have 5 minutes at any given time to sew.
I pieced it together using the blanket stitch almost exclusively, and it’s fully lined. I got inspired by a similar one made from coconut shell, which I bought in Cuba, those Cubans are amazing crafters, lemme tellya.
I will be making more of this for sure.
Fabric, craft thread, zipper, wooden bead.
