The Fortune Cookie Purse – Free Sewing Project

A Free Sewing Project from Random Acts of Piece and Don Morin

Fortune Cookie Purse Sewing Tutorial

A small casual wristlet purse that holds just enough for those nights that you’re going out but don’t want to carry your usual carry-on luggage sized handbag.  Make one from silk, velvet, linen, or denim!  It looks as though this bag was sewn from quilted fabric.
