This really versatile purse patterns has a choice of 3 sizes, 3 pockets and either handles or a shoulder strap. “Pick a Pocketbook” by Christensen Creations is fun to make and fun to give. Lots of diagrams show exactly how to do each step, including how to piece it with 2 1/2″ squares, if desired–great for leftover “jelly roll” strip pieces. However, interesting fabrics like decorator toile or velveteen can also be used. Be creative!
Note–various editions of this have made first place in the Alabama National Fairs. There’s so much variety!
