Just Us Girls Challenge
This is for the Just Us Girls Challenge. The challenge was to make something from a template. and blue if possible. I saw something similar to this on line and made a purse template up from it since I didnt have any templates. I have made several of these and filled with gifts for the ladies in my Womens Ministry. You cut 2 7" circles and cut off the top and bottom. Punch a circle or oval for the handle can add a little suround or not. You then cut a strip 31/2" wide and 11"long. Fold the edges in 1/2" along each side then about 2" on each side crease in half so you will be able to close it. Next fasten onto the circle starting at the center bottom and coming up each side shaping it to follow the circle as you go. I decorated mine with a white strip punched with a MS dot scallop punch and stitched edge, then cut out leaves and fold and shape. Punch several different sizes of round punches and cut and shaped petals. Punch holes in centers and put together. Tie closed with a bow.
