The Tulip Purse

I spent so much time thinking about whether to make a small purse or clutch and what type and pattern to use that I nearly didn’t make one at all!

But after writing my last blog post I though ‘what is wrong with me? Just do it!’

So here is the Two-hour Tulip Purse. I made the smallest size which is so cute and will make a really nice little girls purse too!

I used a Joel Dewberry print for the main fabric. And used a self-cover button.

This bag went together really easily and it probably did take only 2 hours. My time was spread out though with interruptions for dinner and bedtime.

So there you have it – a lovely little evening purse.

It got a work out last night for the engagement party. It is so small I couldn’t fit my wallet in it so borrowed my sons wallet. But it was great not carrying my bulky handbag around, it actually felt a little strange. It was a great night!

Very cute bag and I'm astonished it only took two hours to make.
Did the newly engaged couple like the quilt? Or maybe they haven't had time to open the gift?

Such a cute purse! Can't go wrong with a bit of Joel Dewberry either!
