I Had No Idea It Would Be This Small

   Yes, I do read directions and I do look to see what size the finished product will be but for some reason this little zipper purse came out way smaller than I expected.........even after I saw Michelle's finished purse!

    I found this tutorial on "Lets Make Dumpling's" blog this morning and as usual, I sent the link for it to my friends.

I'm always on the lookout for cute projects for my BFF's birthdays, retreat goodies etc. 
I had decided that tomorrow afternoon I'd assemble one to see how long they took and if I wanted to make a few or not.  Well, I get home from dinner and I get a text from Michelle with a picture of her purse and "easy peasy".   Oh yeah?   OK, so let me pull out some fabric and get one whipped up. 
I stole Michelle's idea about putting the spool of thread next to it so you can see the size...  It's NOT big at all.  I'm sure I could put a small bag of M&M's or a little pack of tissues or a lipstick in it, but it's not going to be something you put a lot in.....
I think it turned out cute!  I used a red with black print for the iniside...
And the answer is, before you ask, yes, it's easy peasy!
