FABulous Home Sewn's Perfect Petal Purse: Canadian Designer's Tour
Hey! Welcome to the next stop on the great Canadian Pattern Designer's blog tour! Today I'm featuring for you the adorable Perfect Petal Purse from FABulous Home Sewn.
This little purse is a quick sew - the petals are a little fiddly, getting them placed just right, but the whole thing takes around an hour, hour and a half start to finish. Lightweight interfacing keeps the shape of the petals and body nice, and keeps the strap from twisting and wrinkling. Trust me, cutting all those petals is worth it! I used two coordinating fabrics for each of my purses, but it would also be fun to make one to look like a sunflower, or maybe a bright Gerbera daisy!
The strap length can easily be customized for a smaller or taller child (or adult!) - I made two purses, one for each of my girls, and made the strap for Sam just a bit shorter to make up for the height difference.
The girls love their little purses - they're perfect for carrying little treasures and treats, and what kid doesn't love a zipper?
