Placemat purses that kids can make are also fun bags for grown-ups to make.
This easy placement bag pattern creates not one bag, but many bags. Each type of placemat gives a completely different style to your bags. Embellish and add details to suit your taste and the season.
Tip: if you happen to have some matching fabric laying around, add an inside pocket for an iPhone.
This purse makes a darling Mothers Day gift. The little pink ribbon ties and the M appliqué are what sets this bag apart, as well as beautiful bamboo handles.
Who would have thought that
this once was a plain placemat?
Gorgeous bamboo bag handles will finish of your bag design and are worth ‘investing’ in. Usually they are about $10-$12 per set of bamboo handles.
Besides a set of handles, you’ll need just 1 placemat, matching thread, a sewing machine, plus ribbon and a bit of fabric to make an appliqué and a pocket.
