Such cute bags! Love those covered buttons. I used to have a button cover kit but it must be wherever I put my two good pairs of gingher scissors for safekeeping--six years ago.


What a cute bag! I'd like to share a link to your bag on sewwhattoday.blogspot.com on March 18!

Such a cute purse!!! Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial!!! I'm making a bright pink flowered purse for my niece. I did modify the lining darts. Rather than one dart in the middle of each side, I made two darts. This worked better for me as far as fitting the liner in the purse since the outside of the purse has an equivalent of two darts with the two pleats on both the front and back. I folded the liner in half, long edge to long edge. Then unfolded, and folded each side to the middle fold, creating quarters. Mark 1 5/8" in from each outside edge. Fold each edge into the center. Mark down the fold 3 1/2". Draw a line from the 1 5/8" mark at the top to the 3 1/2" mark on the fold and sew the dart. Do this on each side, both left and right of each the top and bottom, for a total of four darts for the entire lining. Then fold the purse in half short edge to short edge, right sides together, and sew each side to create the liner bag.

I love how you choose your material, it all goes so well together. This is a very pretty purse and I will be trying this tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful pattern.


Hi, at the moment, i have run out of interfacing, but i am soooooo desperate to make this cute little bag. I have got this cool spray called stiffen stuff which basically stiffens the fabric so that you can use it more easily. Do you think this would work instead of interfacing? Thanks so much for sharing this great pattern. :)


Hi Thea,
Sorry this response is so late....I'm still trying to catch up on all the emails I missed while on vacation.
I've never heard of a spray that will permanently stiffen fabric, so I'm afraid my opinion isn't going to help you much anyway. My gut feeling is that it won't be as good as interfacing, but that's just a guess. Try it on a scrap first, and go for it if it works for you! Good luck and best wishes,


I love this this little clutch, thank you for the tutorial. I just made one for a little friend's birthday. I've popped a pic on Flickr if you want to have a squizz:


did you use lightweight interfacing or heavy???


Cecile, here's the answer to your interfacing question:
"...a stiff, one-sided iron-on interfacing like Pellon DecorBond. You could also use fusible fleece for a stiffer bag."

I love this tutorial! You were very easy to understand, made this little purse in no time, and then made 4 more! Lots of fun to make and my girls completely LOVE them!! Can't have too many purses, RIGHT?!?! LOL!


Thank you so much for this tutorial! Such purse would be a perfect present for my four-years-old daughter.

darling little bag!! I use a small cotton towel, rolled into a firm cylinder, to make a pressing "ham" to iron into small places.

Thank you for the wonderful tutorials. I am a grandmother to two little girls who love purses. Your tutorials look easy to follow and are very clearly photographed. Thank you. I have trouble following patterns and need the visual for sewing. I appreciate your sharing.
