Minnie's Purse

Lately Minnie has been stashing things inside containers. She'll pack things in a brown paper grocery bag and carry it around (yes, it's almost the same size as she is), and she'll pile things inside a tupperware dish, so I decided to make her a little bag to carry things around in.

I had some fabric and some cotton batting, so I decided to quilt the batting to the fabric to make a sturdier bag. I wanted the side to stay upright so she would be able to put in and take out things from the bag. Holy goodness that took a long time! It looks nice, but I think next time I will try some fusible fleece to make it about five times as fast. Of course I'm planning on making more!

She packed her phone and snacks.
I sewed it during her nap, which is when I do most of my sewing, and left it on the coffee table for her to find when she woke up. She ran right over to it and put it over her wrist. I'd say it's a success.

  1. Love it! Sorry the reinforcing took so long. Hopefully the other method will work better next time. So cute how she went straight to it and it worked for her purposes :)
