Grace's Quiet Book ~ Purse Page

Last one! I think this might be Grace's favorite page. She likes little purses and apparently she likes makeup a whole lot, too. I thought she just loved eating chapstick, but this isn't edible, so that is not the case.

Again, purse quiet book pages are pretty common. I bet you can find a bunch of them on Pinterest. I kept mine simple and in line with the "shabby chic" theme of this book with the fabrics.

The handle is just fused on the background with heat'n'bond and a satin stitch holds it down.

The purse bottom was made out of three pieces. The front was cut and sewn onto the zipper, then the front and back were sewn right sides together and flipped through the handy zipper opening. I stitched the whole thing to the background very carefully about 1/8" fromΒ the edge.

Hmmm... I am having problems getting that pic to load on here, but hopefully you can see what I mean. In hindsight, I wish I had sewn the back with the right side facing in. Lots of "I should have done it that way" moments in this book. If you make one you can fix it, OK?

I didn't know what else to put inside the purse besides makeup. The extra flower from the flower page gets tucked inside and I have found a few small items laying around to toss in there, too. But she LOVES the pretend makeup!

The lipstick and compact are made from scraps of fabric and the little pad thingy is made of felt. Velcro on the compact would have been a nice touch. I may try to make eye shadow one day, but she insists on putting her pretend makeup on me during church and I don't want her to poke me in the eye.
