A purse for my niece

Several months ago when I asked my niece what she wanted for her birthday, one of the things she said she wanted was for me to make her a purse. She said she wanted pink and green and really bright colors. So, last weekend in between 4th of July stuff, I made my niece a purse as part of her birthday present. She seemed to really like it, and her mom liked it because she can throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty. The pattern has a large version and a small version, this is the small one (perfect for a ten year old girl I think). I'm planning on making some with the larger pattern for myself and a few for Christmas gifts. Last year it was aprons, this year will be purses :-)

So cute! You are so talented! Doesn't it suck that you can't get patterns or fabric at Wal-Mart anymore? Where do you get your fabric?
