I discovered this free pattern for a zippity purse on the Coats site. The design looks quick, economical to make and young at heart. It is also an extremely simple design so you could easily embroider the surface, decorate with buttons, bead it, adapt it to use up quilting scraps or as a base for crazy quilting. Simply put, simple patterns are very versatile.
I know it is early but I have started poking about and bookmarking items that make good gifts for Christmas. Lets face it many of us have to start making gifts now if we are going to have them ready by December!
The pattern is free and delivered as a PDF file.
