Little Girl's Pocketbook

The Cutie Pie has been invited to a birthday party this Saturday, so I offered to make something for her to take as a gift.  Her choices were a pocketbook, backpack or an apron.  She chose pocketbook.

I took my favorite adult pocketbook pattern, which, unfortunately, is now out of print, and reduced it to 65%.  That makes is just the right size for a pre-schooler.

This pattern is quick and easy but I really love how it finishes up.  I make them for different seasons.

Here's the birthday bag and a little wallet to match, made from scraps.  The birthday girl takes dance, so I chose this piece of pink corduroy with ballet slippers on it.
