Introducing the "On-The-Go Mini Purse"

I am soooo excited about this new pattern in the shop.  This is called the "On-th-Go Mini Purse," and I know you will love this one too!

You know how there are some days when you don't want to lug around your typical giant purse that has everything you could possibly need?  Like a trip to the park with the kids, or a day out with friends, or a trip to Disneyland.  Sometimes you only need the essentials. 

So that is what inspired this pattern.  It's a small purse that is designed to hold just the essentials.  A Camera or Phone, a credit card, cash, a key, and maybe a lipgloss.  :) 

I designed it to snap shut and it's a heavy-duty snap too.  And of course, I had to add a ruffle!  The strap is even removable and there is a belt-loop on the back if you prefer it that way. 

 There are 2 pockets on the insides to keep all the little items like credit cards and keys.  SOOO handy and SOOOO cute.  I already have orders from my mom and my little sister for Christmas.  I think I'll make quite a few of these babies.
Oh!  And the patterns tells you where to get all the hardware if you are new to that area of sewing.  They are sooooo easy to attach.  Seriously.  No sewing needed for the snap. 

So head on over HERE and pick up your pattern.  Enjoy!! 

PS.  Quick personal note... Happy Independance Day!! I love this holiday for so many reasons, but especially because I like that quiet reminder that I have these amazing freedoms because of the sacrifice of so many people. God bless America and THANK YOU to all those who believed enough in our counrty to risk their lives for it.  Long may it wave!!!
