Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a junior just starting out, this sweet Felt Cottage Purse is the perfect project for you. It’s also a great opportunity for junior crafters to hone their skills in a fun and engaging way. If you’re a bit rusty with your sewing machine, don’t worry! This project can be done entirely by hand. But if your machine’s been neglected, now’s the perfect time to dust it off and put it to use!

Though we’ve sewn a pouch or two on the site before, there’s something so adorable about this sweet and cozy Felt Cottage Purse. It’s designed with a thatched roof and a peekaboo window complete with a little cat and potted plant. It’s the perfect size for your everyday essentials—keys, lip gloss, maybe even a hair tie or two (because spring breezes are no joke!). Once complete, your kiddo will undoubtedly be the coolest in the shire.

I love this project because it really reinforces how useful and fun it is to sew your own clothes and accessories. It’s essentially a superpower that allows you to create and share a one-of-a-kind item made entirely by you! Also, there’s this amazing sense of accomplishment that comes from creating something beautiful and useful with your own two hands.

So, let’s embrace the spirit of Spring, roll up our sleeves, and get stitching! Don’t forget to share your Felt Cottage Purses with us in our crafters’ community. Or, tag us on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
