Welcome back to Summer Fun Fridays. This is a beginner sewing project that is loads of fun. Your kids can make an easy to sew felt purse with this simple tutorial.
This is an inexpensive craft project too because you can get most, if not all, of the supplies at your local dollar store. Make a small one to serve as a coin purse or make it larger to use as a wallet or clutch purse.
Note: if making a larger size, you will want to use a stiffer felt or add some kind of stabilizer to hold its shape.

- Colored felt fabric

Fold up the straight side of the purse layout and bring it all the way up to the yellow line on the template.

While stitching the side of purse, make sure to stitch both parts (front and backside) of the folded part. Work flat blanket stitch along the sides as well.

After stitching both sides, work your way towards the open end of the flap part. Work flat blanket stitch on the flap as well.
