Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

Today I made this cute little purse for my 3 yo grand daughter. It will be her Easter basket. I will include two story books and one chocolate bunny.

There are some changes I would make to the directions. On the Moda Bake Shop website, the directions are correct for #13 but on their printer friendly version, they are a little different. Follow the website directions. For #10 I would have said to do this twice. I'm not a sewing person so for me this was trial and error. I figured out my mistake and it turned out well. Finally, for the pleat, instead of sewing both ends together at once, I sewed the two 4" x 12" pieces together on one end, folded the fabric wrong sides together, then I measure from my seam to the edge of the fabric, found my center and then made the 1" and 2" marks after that step. When I was all pinned after pinching the pleat, I then sewed the other end back together. Don't ask me why this worked better for me, I don't know. LOL

So here it is!!


As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. Happy Sunday!!
