Spring Purse! :)

Yesterday, I was inspired by the warm spring (finally!) weather we've been having to make myself a purse. So... I surfed the web and came across several tutorials on how to make one for yourself. Finally I settled on a cute little bag that I found the pattern for FREE here on the blog Made by Rae.

She has some great stuff on her blog, and her pattern is super easy to follow. I do recommend you look through the pattern before you begin, and have her pictures handy to make sense of some of her wording. :)

This project was relatively inexpensive too! *Bonus* :) You will need 2 fat quarters one for the exterior and one for the lining (or you can buy 2/3 yard of fabric). Jo-Ann's has their fat quarters on sale for 99 cents until tomorrow (didn't realize the sale ends tomorrow- but even so, fat quarters are max $1.99 there) and all of their Dritz hardware is 50% off too- so you can get two magnetic snaps for about $2.50 which makes 2 purses with a final cost about $7! :)

Yay!! Not bad for a unique bag for the spring. :)

The finished dimensions of my bag are 11" x 7" and has a 10" drop. :)


  1. That is the cutest purse I have seen in a while. I love it.
    Love, Veronica

  2. I love the buttercup pattern. It is so easy and fun. What a fun spring pattern. Here is one I made out of a dress...

  3. So cute! I am new to sewing so I am looking for fun projects!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. I made the same bag in Denim! I love it. It's nice to finally have a purse instead of a ginormous diaper bag! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I can't wait to see your silhouettes! And check out my new merged craft/cake blog!
