I made this little purse for a friend of mine, whose birthday is today. (Happy Birthday Kristin! This bag is for you!) For this cute little bag, I used Martha Stewart’s free Reversible Purse Pattern. I love that the bag is reversible – if I make another, I may embroider something on the solid fabric before I sew it all together so it’s not quite so plain when reversed to the solid side. Oh and I love the little birdie fabric! It is a little reminiscent of fall in the colors (and I guess it still feels like fall here in central Texas), but I still just love it! Overall, this was pretty simple to sew – it only used 1/2 of a half yard (although you need the width of a half yard cut – just think of it as making two purses with one 1/2 yard) and it is big enough to use for a night out on the town although probably not for an everyday bag! I actually have a purse in this same style, in leather, that I got as a souvenir for my time in Italy! Kristin, I hope you like your little bag – hopefully I will see you soon so I can give it to you!
