I am in the process of making a few small purses to keep on hand for gifts. I love making these as they work up quickly so you get a real sense of satisfaction. They are pretty small - maybe 7" x 9" with a zip on top and several pockets on the inside that can hold a lipstick, small hand lotion etc. There are many ways to make these and quite a few tutorials out there in blogland. No need for a pattern - just cut out the size you want based on the sizes of scraps you have on hand. My kind of project ! Please check back if you would like to see the finished product.
