"Go Anywhere" Purse

I finished this little purse for a friend's daughter. Her 10th birthday is approaching and I think she will enjoy this. It will nicely hold tissues, a pen and small notepad for church.

Note: the pattern instructions for the purse came from a book entitled, Kids Can Do It: Crocheting by Blakley Kinsler. I borrowed it from our local library.

I've done another project for another friend's daughter who just turned 4. I have to wait to show you pictures though because I want her momma to be surprised. :)

This evening I'm starting on a surprise for Marissa's birthday. It will be a little bit of a stretch seeing that it is a sewing project...and I don't know how to sew very well...YET!

I'm enjoying doing crafts this winter and it's helping to chase away the winter "blahs".


  1. Heather, I have a sewing project for you to try. Devin did it at the RMH and my mom and I are going to try it too. You use the fleece material (I'm not sure how much) in different colors and put the pieces on top of each other then cut the sides into strips close the middle. It makes a scarf eventually. HA HA! If I can find any pictures of one I will send it to you. Love Melissa

  2. Hmm, certainly send me a picture and instructions...mine might not turn out like a scarf! :)

    I'll have to send pictures of Marissa's pillow that I made for her birthday. I only had to rip out all the seams twice...goodness me. However, it came out...well, like a pillow. :)
