April 21st, 2013, 10:27 AM
Hi all,

I would love so much if you posted a tutorial on making quilted coin purses and make up bags. I have made lots of the tote bags and it would be so cool to have these smaller versions of the same thing to match the bags!! I have looked for a tutorial on these small bags on youtube but the ones I watch are not very good. Please Jenny you are the best at tutorials, would love to see one on this topic!!

Go to Crafty Gemini's YouTube channel, she shows how to make small bags with zippers.

Mary, here's the link for Vanessa's tutorial. It's an excellent tute. Once you learn how, you can adjust the purses to your own measurements. I make all sizes of this purse.
