A LITTLE PURSELETT . . . The 911 Bag

TaDah! Finished a couple of things today. First, a cute little purselett that I have dubbed "911", because I fill them with essential things a gal might need during the day at work: 'cotton angels', ponytail holder, small manicure set, bandaids, hand sanitizer, emery board, small sewing kit, etc.... All the gals in my DD's office love them. By the end of the year I hope to have made one for each gal.

Take 2 FQ. Fold raw edges to center. Fold over ends and top stitch for casing. Stitch up side... DONE! I do make tassels, or prairie points or similar to use as 'handles' to open purselett. Today I made strips similar to what we make for belt loops and added some buttons on the ends for fun.

Before joining the front to the lining, I made a small pocket for the 'cotton Angels' and top-stitched it to the lining.

Also today saw the completion of 10 new crocheted coasters. Pics for these Valentine's cuties will follow soon. I have really been on a crocheting binge lately... can't get enough of hooking! lol

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit.

These are so cute and that is the first time I heard the term "cotton angels", that made me giggle!
