TLC211 Treat Purse {3/9/09}
When I saw THIS project in Julie's (a/k/a reneejul1) blog, I knew that it would be a fun project for the TLC gang. I hope you feel the same way. This project was originally named Valentine Treat Purse, but can easily be adapted for just about any occasion and made to contain just about anything from candy treats to small 3X3 gift cards.

Julie has wonderful directions for this project, which can be found HERE.

In working up my sample for this TLC, I did modify Julie's measurements for the inside. Using Julie's measurement, I felt the box top was higher than I wanted mine. I really wanted to "show off" the goods, so to speak, so I reduced the size to one that fit my needs, and I encourage you to do the same, if you want to. Rather than make cardstock handles, I chose to go with some ribbon handles, but I would love to see what you creative ladies can do with today's project.

To view my sample CLICK HERE or HERE.

...and as always, don't forget to use Keyword TLC211 when you upload your projects.

HINT for next week: A slot, a ribbon and a knot

I just tried the basic pattern on this and I have a quick question. How do you keep the front part fron leaning forward? TIA

lacyquilter 03-09-2009 05:52 AM

Cute. Thanks, Lynn.

sunsetbeaches 03-09-2009 05:53 AM

Oh my, this is going to be fun. Off to play.

Lynn in St. Louis 03-09-2009 05:54 AM

You can either tie the handles together, or use a small piece of velcro on the front - holding it to the box on the inside. If you really wanted to get fancy you could always add a magnetic closure.
