How to Make It
1.Wash the white felt and let it air-dry.
2.To make the pattern, tape the long end of one sheet of paper to the long end of the next; add the third sheet of paper in the same way.
3.Use scissors to cut the top piece of the pattern into a V that will become the purse flap.
4.Place the paper on the white felt and cut all around.
5.Fold the bottom third of the felt over the middle third; stitch the sides together using a blanket embroidery stitch, to create the purse pouch. Also stitch around the V for a cohesive look.
6.Cut four petal shapes from red felt and glue them to the point of the V.
7.Stitch a button in the center to finish.
8.To make the handle, cover the cording with a scrap of white felt and glue the ends shut.
9.Stitch the handle neatly to the back side of the bag.
