It's been since January that I posted and I really owe you guys more, but I've been really busy with some new business opportunities. Any who, my cousin Marisa turned 16 this month - yeah Marisa! For her gift, I made her a purse and, in honor of the Sweet 16, a matching keychain. I found both of the patterns online and both were FREE. Fabric was found at my favorite fabric store - Michael Levine in downtown LA. Both fabrics are Amy Butler - who just so happens to be from my hometown of Granville, Ohio. I always gravitate to her stuff. Below are the links for the patterns, both are really easy. The purse only takes a couple hours and the keychain is super quick.

Note a couple of adjustments: Make sure you use Interfacing to make the purse more durable. For strap, cut the piece 4 inches wide and then fold in 1 inch on both sides and then fold in half - this will make the strap more durable.
