You can make this purse as big as you want. I used 18 total on this one. Also there is a lot of variety of snack packs to choose from. I used care bears because my little girl loves them. Take 2 packs and sew together bottom of one to top of of other, do this 3 times and lay aside. This will be the sides and bottom. Then take 3 and sew together side by side, do this 4 times. Then take one of the 3 that you sewed for front or back and sew one on top of the other, do this twice. That is the front and back. Take that and sew to each one of the sides then sew on bottom. Sew on your ribbon for handle. These are really easy to sew.
