Average rating: (4.7 of 5) based on 3 reviewsThe cutest little change purses of all time.Reviewed by Kaitlin (Verified Buyer) on 08/23/2016I absolutely love these little change purses. They are adorable. My daughters (ages 3 and 5) oohed and aahed over them when they saw two that I made. They're a little tedious to make - lots of applique work and I don't enjoy sewing round things (I'm always afraid of the puckers). However, the cuteness factor is well worth the time it takes to make them. The instructions are extremely easy to follow - as all patters from Oliver and S are. I plan on making about 20 of these to give as gifts. I'm on #4 so 16 to go...Was this helpful?So cute!Reviewed by Kara (Verified Buyer) on 12/24/2015I bought this pattern during an Oliver and S sale because I was looking for something quick and fun to make for my kids. The pattern is great to buy as a PDF because it's only a few pattern pages, and the instructions are extremely thorough. It's so nice to have Leisl's meticulous pattern drafting applied to a fun and quirky product. The zipper pulls really make these pouches - so cute and full of personality!Was this helpful?Cute and versatileReviewed by UrbanStitcher (Verified Buyer) on 11/21/2015This pattern was well worth the money. I made 14 pouches. After following the pattern for the first few, it was easy to modify and personalize for our grandchildren, nieces and nephews of all ages.
