Girly Fabric Purse



No sew fabric crafts are an easy alternative if you're short on time. Make your own Girly Fabric Purse from Candace Jedrowicz and wear it all year long. Use fun, whimsical prints and embellishments to make your piece stand out.

Girly Fabric Purse


  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Glue
  • Fabric
  • Foam brush
  • Hot glue
  • Cardboard or card stock
  • Velcro
  • Embellishments



  1. Print out Girly Girl Purse to reference instructions. Cut two pieces of the full size pattern, one for the outside and one for the lining.Fold edges of fabric as indicated by the dark gray areas and iron them.

  2. Cut the three cardboard/card stock pieces as instructed. Their placement is indicated by the medium gray areas. Glue them in place on the wrong side of the lining fabric.Folded edges should overlap the cardboard.Glue the lining to the outside – wrong sides together.

  3. The gussets are the wing shaped pieces on the sides. Fold the gussets in and hot glue the bottom tabs to the purse bottom.

  4. Hot glue outer edges of the gussets – lining to lining – to the front of the purse. In this photo, I’m holding the edges together as they cool.

  5. Glue the Velcro closures in place. I cut mine into heart shapes and, even though they were self stick, I used hot glue to secure them.

The pattern link only has the small pattern. What are the dimensions of the whole purse or where do we get the full size pattern pieces?

I love this design and would like to make it several times as gifts for my granddaughters, but when I went to the pattern, it was only the instructions, no pattern. I noticed in the video you say "tape the pattern pieces together" so I assume there must be more. Please post the entire pattern, if possible. Thank you so much for posting this design.
