My youngest, Olivia, LOVES getting into my purse. If it is anywhere within reach she WILL find it and will empty its entire contents onto the floor.
I decided it was time for her to have her own little purse that she could tear apart. So I made this sweet little purse:
Nothing special – regular cotton fabric for the outside, flannel for a soft, cozy inside and some straps.
But what does a little princess carry inside her purse?
Her cell (OF COURSE), a comb and a Twallet. Wait, what? What’s a TWALLET? A Toddler Wallet of course! I took inspiration from my felt fairy wallet and made a simple, fold in half wallet with one large pocket for “bills” and two small pockets for her cards (what baby doesn’t leave home without a hotel key and Toy’s R Us Rewards card?).
I then put together a few fabric bills using cotton fabric. I appliqued ones onto the front of the bills, added cellophane sandwiched in between the two layers. Sewed them together, leaving a 3″ gap along the bottom. Turn them right side out, top stictch and you’ve got some fun, crinkly bills.
This is a great toy for her to use to imitate mommy, so it really keeps her attention. I love to watch as she combs her hair with big smiles. 😉
