I found another use for the wool I bought at the Salvation Army fabric sale a year ago. This wool purse was made using a the Folklore Bag pattern from One-Yard Wonders. I used knife pleats instead of a large box pleat (more of an oversight than a calculated decision), but I don't think it made that much of a difference. The use of black is always a good choice for moms, especially moms of boys, because dirt can hide and stay hidden.
I only had 2/3 of a yard of fabric, so I used some quilting cotton for the inside of the purse. This is always a fun decision anyway. I used some Hometown by Sweetwater to make a large pocket on one side and two small elastic top pockets on the other side, perfect for holding two Playtex sippy cups.
This purse is the perfect size to carry a small amount of stuff and still be able to find everything.
