little girl purses

Ok, a little more about those cute purses I made.
For an upcoming wedding my sister-in-laws and I all ordered our daughters matching April Cornell dresses. Wanting to have matching ties for our little guys we ordered an extra dress and I am making the boys matching ties (I’ll show you those later). Once I cut up the dress to make the ties, I ended up with a lot of extra ruffles and stuff. Not wanting to waste the beautiful ruffles I decided to make the little girls some purses. I used a pair of pants that I never wore as the main parts of the purses and the leftover pieces from the dress to embellish the purses.
Not having a lot of time, I didn’t get too fancy with each one, plus I had to make 6 purses. Even with the quick sewing I did, I think they are super cute and I know that my little nieces won’t notice the zig-zagged edges and my quick stitches.

I made them all different sizes and shapes.
Some with short handles.

Some with longer handles.

And some with pockets.
I carefully seam ripped the pockets off the dress and simply sewed them back onto the purse. The handle for this purse was made from the collar of the dress.
And these handles were from the opening on the back of the dress. Can you tell, it’s the part with the buttons and button holes? I simply cut them off the dress and zig-zag stitched the edges so they wouldn’t fray. They make cute little handles.
I love how cute it looks with her dress.
And her sweet little hands holding it so tight.
There is something pretty sweet about a little girl and her purse!
