Remember the brown purse I made here? Well, here is part 2.
This is a simple one and even faster to make than the first purse.
This time I used one place mat.
Just place it face down...the short end facing you.
Fold up the bottom, about 2/3 of the way up.
I folded mine up about 7 inches.
Sew down each side with a 1/4 inch seam.
I just sewed on the existing seam of the place mat with matching thread.
All done...almost. Needs a little decoration.
The top folds over nicely for a cute little clutch.
You can also hot glue a vintage button on the front.
