Sugar Skull Purse Pattern

A lovely, micro-tiny bag, with or without the sugar skull.

Difficulty: Easy

The Sugar Skull mico knitted and felted purse is one of my newest favorite felted purses. Like others of my micro felted purses, Sugar Skull is the perfect little purse for your knitting tote: carry your stitch markers, tiny snips, measuring tape, and other knitting goodies. This purse is also perfect for going out to a fancey party. Decorate with the sugar skull or not, as you prefer. Make in any color: match your outfit. Match your fabulous shoes. 

Sugar Skull makes a great gift. Knit it tonight, finish it tomorrow.

    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.
