A Purse for Vanessa!

My granddaughter, Sarah, came over for the weekend. She wanted to do some sewing with me and to catch up on some TV watching with Grampa. We all had such a great time!

Sarah wanted to make a purse for Vanessa, her step-mom. I thought for sure I would be making a purse for her once Sarah lost interest. Well I certainly was proven wrong! Sarah sewed the whole purse, with just direction from me. She has grown so much..

I had used this “Letty’s Bag” pattern a number of times and have received nothing but compliments on it. I thought it would be the perfect one for Sarah to try. We got right at it on Friday afternoon after work and before supper we had it pretty much together. All we were lacking were the grommets in order to put the straps on.

She was pretty excited and couldn’t wait to give it to Vanessa. We easily finished it up for her to take it home with her on Sunday afternoon.

The second picture just does not do it justice, there are so many neat pockets inside.

She even fitted in another project which I forgot to get pictures of. It was of an embroidery stuffed owl. I will have get her to send me a picture.

  1. Love it so cute, the pocket is so cute, with the pattern of the fabric it looks like a button on the pocket.

    • Deb, thanks for coming by. It is hard to tell but there is a button on the pocket. Sarah had picked out this old fashion white beaded button I had in my stash. It really does match the fabric well.
