And since it's been very cold and snowy around these parts, I knit up a little hat to go along with the purse.

A lovely little red-haired girl we know recently had a birthday. I wasn't quite sure what to get for her until her aunt mentioned that she likes Tinkerbell and carrying purses around the house. So I combined those two things together and made her a Tinkerbell purse. It's basically a rectangular tote with a squared-off bottom. I was really happy with the way it came out and will definitely think about using this idea again for other little girl birthdays. For all the supplies I went to Joann's. The sparkly green fabric was in the "prom dress" section and worked perfectly. I was very lucky and found the green and hot pink flower trim to add a little extra color and texture. The icing on the cake was the iron-on Tinkerbell patch. I used the glue gun to make sure that it didn't come off, though.
