Free Pattern: Peppermint Purse

I first designed these with fur to look like the trees from the Lorax (LOVE that show!).  One of my awesome testers made these peppermint swirl versions…aren’t they SWEET?!

Thank you to Shaunna Hallsson for making these samples and sharing with us.


The FREE pattern includes instructions for making the purses with long straps or a short one, plus a larger backpack. These would be cute as Lalaloopsy bags too.
