Dear Lizzie Purse

Do you fancy creating something a little bit different using your scrapbooking stash? Louise has made this amazing little purse for her daughter using some Dear Lizzie fabric paper.

You Will Need......
Dear Lizzy Fabric paper, ribbon and brad
Thread
Double sided tape
Zip

How To....
1. Cut a circle from the fabric paper. The outside circle should be twice the length of your zip.

2. Fold the paper in half and stick one edge of the zip around half the circle edge. This will hold the zip in place while you stitch them together.
3. Repeat with the other half.
4. Cut another slightly smaller circle than the first from the fabric paper, peel off the backing and stick it to the centre of the purse lining it.
5. Make a ribbon flower by stitching along one edge of a 10cm length of ribbon, and gather the ribbon tightly on the thread.
6. Secure the flower onthe front of the purse with a Brad.


We hope you enjoy having a go at creating this, if you don't mind sharing we would love to see your finished purses, just post a link in the comments box.
