Cute Stuff - Felt Purse

Today I have another handmade Christmas gift to show you.  I was so happy to be making Christmas presents because it meant that I could get out all of my crafty books and look through the fun patterns.  I haven't made something with a pattern in a while.  I've been trying to come up with my own original craft designs so much lately that my pretty books have been neglected. 

I decided to make my Aunt this felt purse from Aranzi Cute stuff.  I love felt and sewing purses so this seemed like the perfect project to try. 

I changed it up a little bit by appliqueing a flower with a button center on the pocket instead of the patterns they had in the book.  This is me we're talking about afterall.  ;-)

This was a really simple bag to make.  I like that it's made out of felt so I didn't have to worry about a lining or anything.  Isn't felt the best??

I will definitely be making myself one when I have time.  I'm thinking about trying to make the straps a little bit longer on the next one.  These are fine for this size bag but I don't really think it's meant to be an over the shoulder kind of bag.  I think this one makes a great everyday purse or bag to hold books or crafts.
