Gifts Project #4

Purses... Have I mentioned I love purses?

These are swing purses. They are in the 'across the body' style, with a magnetic closure. The pattern is on the AllPeopleQuilt website I mentioned before. They are small, quick and super flexible. I made these for the little women in my life and used all scrap fabric, embellished with ribbons, buttons and eyelash yarn.

I like to have gifts made up in advance because you never know when an opportunity will come up and if you have gifts ready you might get more opportunities (or make up your own reason to give: unbirthday, first day of school or new job, straight A's, feeling blue). Making things assembly line style makes it very easy to finish multiple projects quickly.
