When I found a book on felt toys I couldn't wait to get started. While I wanted to try out some super cool fall and holiday crafts while it was still early. Pie had other ideas. She saw this cherry purse and decided she HAD TO HAVE IT! When my usual "DON'T you like THIS one instead?!?!?" (a million times) didn't work, I gave in and tried her pick first. Someone remind her, when she's 13 and hates me, how many times I made her cool things.
This bag is made completely of felt and a little stuffing. It was incredibly time consuming because most of the stitching had to be done by hand. The cherry design came with two side pockets and sturdy handles. Pie loved it before it took up residence in the land of forgotten bags. Paper birthday bags are all the new rage these days, until the next cool thing comes around.
