DIY purse patterns to sew for kids! If your kids are anything like mine, they love stashing things and carrying things with them. Kid purses are fun to sew because they’re usually pretty simple and well received; I had fun making this list of purse patterns that includes some free tutorials and lots of adorable themes! Such a quick gift to sew for kids and none of them take much fabric.
Let me know what your favorite thing to tuck into a gifted purse is! I think it would be sweet to put in a little treasure surprise (maybe a pocket kitty?) or any kid would be delighted to pull out some quarters I bet.
