Cute purse from a kit

By August 15, 2011 , , , ,

So I got those purse kits from Walmart for like $3 remember?100_3901
Well I finally made one. The directions were pretty worthless, but I did sew my first pleats! Just in time for pleat week in the sewing blogger world too!
100_3995 I'm definitely going to made some modifications before I use it as a 'purse purse' so I'm not losing stuff as I walk, but for right now it makes a nice throw bag for all that random junk we always seem to be bringing.
Plus Pepper likes it cause of the Hello Kitty ribbon ties, but what's no to love?!
