View Full Version : FOs: Pocket purses

I made these little guys out of left-over yarn and funky buttons and they turned out really cute! My 8 & 9 year old nieces love them - they put their money and other "treasures" in them.

I blocked the middle one (mine, I am actually keeping something I made for myself) to make it a bit wider and now it is the perfect size for gift cards - I am sure I will make and give more of these for Christmas.

I am a new knitter and these little projects sure help build skills and confidence. :)

I made one of those but it didn't turn out quite as well as yours. Still, it was a fun, brief project and would be good for a beginner knitter to try.

I adore these little pocket purses! i'd love to make a bunch up for my two little grand-daughters, ages 3 and 7. Where might I find a pattern, or did you invent it yourself? the buttonhole and the flap edgings look especially pretty to me.

These are so cute! Can you share the pattern or did you make it up as you go? I'd love to make some for Christmas.
