Valentine's Bracelet Purse

What little girl wouldn't love to get this purse that doubles as a bracelet? Then you fill it with goodies such as candy and you really make them happy. Make one from blues for boys and fill it with candy, tiny toy frogs, trucks, or other toys.


Approximate Time: 1 hour


  • 2 colors of felt
  • needle and floss
  • scissors
  • candies or other goodies
  • tacky glue
  • buttons
  • puff paint optional
  • hook and loop optional


  1. Cut a strip of felt for the band 1 inch wide by approximately 9 inches long. Cut another strip of your second color 1/4 inch wide by 1 inch shorter than your finished length. I didn't have a child's wrist to measure so this is an estimate. You want to make sure you make it long enough to overlap for your button to catch or hook and loop if you want to use that.

  2. Cut 1/4 inch slits every half inch crosswise along the band then weave your narrow color through the slits. Glue in place at both ends.


  3. From your second color of felt cut a piece 2x4 inches, make a point on one narrow end for the flap, measure a 1/2 inch from the flap and bring the other end up to that point; pin in place.

  4. Center this "purse" on the band. With your floss start at one side on the bottom of purse and stitch up the side catching the band in your stitches, then stitch around the flap and down the other side catching the band once again in your stitches.

  5. You could mark the section that will be the front and do your decorating before you stitch the purse shut if you like.

  6. Make a slit for the buttonhole in the point of the flap, stitch around the slit to reinforce it, and sew a button on the front of the purse directly under that slit.


  7. Add either a button to one end of the band or hook and loop to fasten.

  8. Fill the purse with goodies.
