How-to Fashion Doll Purse

You know we LOVE to make things out of recycled materials and scraps... so... here is an easy one for you!

Grab some scraps and get ready to craft! we used some scraps from two cotton shirts and some ribbon...
cut two squares 3.5 X 3 inches, then hem the top side... then, cut a small square and fold all the sides in (iron flat) then sew across the toppin the small square to the front side of one of the larger rectangles, sew down the side across the bottom and up the other side to attach the pocket... then, take some ribbon and lay it on the good side on large rectangles and sew as shown, repeat on the other large rectangle.
place the large rectangles on top of each other good side to good side and then sew down the side, along the bottom, and up the other side, follow with a zig-zag stitch around the raw edges them turn your purse right side out and you are done!

Happy Crafting
