DIY Project: Simple Folded Purses

Threads magazine - 184 - April/May 2016 Issue
Article Image
This great project from Threads #184 (April/May 2016) is great for beginners and yields a cute, handy little bag. Sew this pretty purse or handy pouch in less than an hour with a little fabric, some fusible batting, and an optional closure. The dimensions of the fabric squares you start with determine the maximum bag height and width, but you can customize the size and shape. Use the tucked-in corners as interior compartments for keys, phone, lipstick, wallet, and more. Your essentials are stored safely without a zipper because the overlapping flaps conveniently hide your possessions.
