Holiday Placemat Purses

Created By Karen

Karen stitched these adorable purses for lucky women on her gift list, and writes... "I was so inspired by your Countdown to Christmas Club project pictures, that I decided to start making gifts earlier this year! Each year, I try to think of a project to sew that all the gals on the gift list can use, so it has to practical. One year, it was tea cozies, another year, it was headbands, and last year, it was tissue holders to go in the purse. This year, I decided on little Christmas purses made out of placemats. It was a chance to use lots of beautiful trims and metallic embroidery thread! Thanks so much for all your hard work in making your web site a joy to visit!" These purses will be practical, and they're so pretty! And how creative to make them out of placemats. I'm sure the lucky people who received these just loved them. Thanks for sharing them with us, Karen! For quick and easy projects to make out of placemats, see the project instructions for the casserole cover, chair back cover, tote bag, flatware pocket, and pocket book.
