Make a Little Purse

Okay, I know this is my food blog, but I just spent two hours making a little purse for my almost-eight-year-old daughter's friend's birthday present.  Maybe if I blog about what I just did then it will be like I accomplished more today...

I'm not the best seamstress and I get pretty frustrated when I sew.  I usually have some kind of sewing machine threading mishap that causes me almost to curse and throw my machine (I said almost...I didn't really throw my sewing machine).  But I figure, that the more that I sew the better I'll get.  I'm fortunate to be surrounded by very talented people that can sew, like my sister, my sister-in-laws, my friends,my mom and my mother-in-law.

My friend, Megan, is super talented and has made my kids the best gifts for their birthdays and for me too.  She's made superhero capes, doll clothes, pillow w/a book pocket, and a car track roll (like a crayon roll), etc.. daughter was invited to a birthday party tomorrow and I wanted to make her something fun (so I can attempt to be like Megan).  Since we live a long way from fabric stores I "shopped" in Megan's stash of fabulous fabric. 

I found a tutorial from Little Girl Pearl on Pinterest. And attempted to follow her instructions. 

This is what I mine ended up looking like. Not perfect. But finished at least.
 I've never made rolled fabric flowers before.  But Pinterest to the rescue...and I learned how from this tutorial from My Sparkle. 
 Now, I hope it doesn't fall apart...
