My grandchildren now have one each. I also had a Christmas craft fayre and they were popular there too. I would love some more of your patterns, as they are easy to follow. Thanks again JeanWas this helpful?The 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?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.

In the first version of this pattern, there was one minor error. In the gray-boxed section with the heading “Pattern Symbol Key,” the text said that all seams are 1/2". This should have said 3/8". This will not affect your use of the pattern as the seam lines on the pattern pieces are correctly located at 3/8".
