Grandchildren



Being a long-distance grandmother has it's challenges for staying connected so I came up with this idea to make my two girls cute little felt purses for Christmas. This one is both sides of Julia's purse. She is 7 years old. Each side could be a front and there is a button closure plus each side has a pocket. I used a bead necklace for the shoulder strap. They took a lot of time, but when you are captive in a car for many hours/days it is a good time to do such projects. I could never do it at home with all the demands of life, but it sure was fun. Looking forward to the next trip.
