FREE ON-LINE TUTORIALS: DIMINUTO Purse

Page 1

keypursetut0

This tutorial is sized to make a little purse approximately 4 inches tall by 3 inches wide, but these can be made in almost any size or proportions. Make one to fit your phone, or as a pencil case!

I like to work with 100% cotton since it is easy to handle, forgiving and takes a crease well, but since you do not need to iron the main panel, you could use any fabric you like. Get your scrap box out and have a play.

Backing fabric 1 piece; 7 x 5 inches
Wadding 1 piece; 7 x 5 inches
Strips at least 16 pieces; 1 x 6 inches
Binding 1 piece; 12 x 1 inches
Nylon Zip - 1 off; at least 9 inches long
