Purse for Children's Dramatic Play or Treasure Collecting

Blogged here: harvestmoonbyhand.blogspot.com/2008/08/purse-for-children...

 

This little clutch or purse is a great one to take along on nature walks where little treasures can be placed inside...a smooth acorn, a beautiful fall leaf, a magical stone.

 

The purse has a tri-color yarn strap made from 100% cotton yarn. Using fall colors of yellow, orange, and red, it is the perfect length for a child to wear over her shoulder.

 

This 100% wool felt purple purse is embellished with a plant-dyed wool felt green leaf. It is the perfect size for a child who likes to collect small treasures on nature walks or likes to pretend she's "just like mama" who carries a purse.

 

The purse closes with a standard snap, making it easy for children and adults alike to use it.

 

It is hand-embroidered with tiny blanket-stitches (about 7-8 per inch), so it is sturdy and will hold the items placed in it. It is meant to be an heirloom piece that a child can pass along to her children.

 

The cover design is a sage-green leaf that has a chain-stitch design on and around it. There are tiny yellow dots made with embroidery floss around the leaf on the pumpkin-color orange felt.

 

The size of the purse is 4 1/2" wide by 3" high.
