Any purse that is small will do for a child. You could add appliques or a knitted flower or something and it would be adorable. Here's a few to check out.

If you crochet this one is cute.

Booga Bags naturally felt pretty small and thinner gauge yarn would make it more so.

the isabeau purse is cute and small enough for a toddler to drag around. I have done 2 of these and on the second one I increased the number of stitches and the number of repeats to make it a little bit bigger for an adult size. Also I kit/croceht all of my daughters pursed from cotton since it is sturdy and holds up will to washing.

I made this purse for my dd and she loves it. The pattern is at the bottom of the page, after the pattern for the dress (which my dd also loves!).

This one looks pretty small, is free, and it's knitted.

FO: Toddler Purse
Thank you all for your suggestions! I ended up going to the yarn shop and picking out what I thought would be a cute yarn for a purse for my girl. I didn't realize I was going to bring home a yarn that no one has posted a pattern for. lol. So, I wung it (Is wung a word?) and this is what I ended up with! Don't look too closely, this was my first project not following a pattern. And Harper is sick, but she's being a good sport and trying to say cheese for the camera. You can see she is already toting around her baby bunny! She either loves it, or she is humoring me. Either way, I'll take it!
