Jelly Roll Purses

Use a jelly roll or cut your own strips when you stitch this fun
partially made in the hoop purse. 2 hoop sizes are included.

Jelly Rolls are available at fabric and quilt shops. They consist of several lengths of coordinating fabrics that are 2.50" wide.

You can get 2 purses from a roll with enough strips left over that you can stitch together to use to create matching accessories from some of my other in the hoop designs.

You will also need about 1/2 yard of fabric for the lining, one magnetic snap (.75") and Soft & Stable by Annie to give the purse body. Purse feet are optional. We love the look of them and they're easy to install.

The front and back pieces (with lining attached) and the tab with magnetic snap are made in the hoop in separate hoopings. You have to machine stitch the handles, sew about 24" of straight stitching and box the corners.

Complete detailed instructions with photos of each step are included. You do need basic sewing skills to complete the purse.

The purses are fully lined when finished.

There are 2 purse sizes in the set.
One is for the 8x12 hoop and one for the 9.50x14 hoop.
See the actual design file dimensions and other info below under Design Info.

When finished the large purse (9.50x14 hoop) measures 7.50" high x 10" wide x 3.50" deep. These measurements exclude the handles.

When finished the smaller purse (8x12 hoop) measures 6.50" high x 9.50 wide x 2" deep. The measurements exclude the handles.
