Little Sweets Purses

Three Micro-Tiny Purse Designs

Difficulty: Easy

These three Little Sweets are delightful to put in your knitting tote or handbag. Fill them with stitch markers, tiny scissors, or tapestry needles. Their diminutive silhouettes are too cute to pass up, fun and fast to make, and make great gifts.

Choose 26 1/2 minutes for a pair of precious earrings, your favorite rings, medicines you take at lunch time. Make Just Lipstick as a little purse for a tube of lipstick, chapstick, or your phone blue-tooth. And Little Poof is the cutest change purse ever. It's also great for stitch holders, those tiny snips scissors, and other small knitting necessities.

But don't limit yourself to decorating just bags: jeans, t-shirts, boot, jackets, belts, and anything you can rivet is fair game. We've got our eye on the bottom of a pair of flared blue jeans for our next endeavor. Add the decorated Anouk to the ensemble, and we've got a statement to make!

  • Two skull ornaments with screws.

    There are skull people . . . The mom of one of my girlfriends has knitting and accessory bags with skull and crossbones printed on them. I've seen people wearing skulls emblazoned across hats, the backs of leather jackets, knitted mittens.

    And then there are people who don't know they are secretly skull people . . . I would be one of these. I have always been a great appreciator of the day of the dead, but not a skull person . . . until I screwed this little skull ornament onto the front flap of my
