Here is the “big girl” version of the original petite Bonbon Purses. These purses are made exactly like the 4” Bonbon Purses, except they are LARGER so you have more room on the flap to personalize them as you wish! Each purse flap is created in the hoop and then added to the purse with very simple, easy steps on your sewing machine (PDF patterns for the purse body are included).
This set includes five different flap designs, each in two sizes (5” and 6”) and in two versions - one with a buttonhole closure and one with a hook & loop tape closure. ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable makes these purses sturdy yet soft, and it is easily added to the flap designs right in the hoop! Step-by-step PDF instructions show you how to complete the entire purse - including directions for a few different purse strap options. The purse is lined. The 5" flap designs will fit in most 5x7 hoops; the 6" flap designs will fit in most 6x10 hoops.
Here are the dimensions of the finished purses: The 5" flaps will make a purse that is 5.5" tall, 5.25" wide at the top, 6" wide at the bottom, and 2" deep (measured across the bottom from front to back). The 6" flaps will make a purse that is 6.5" tall, 6.25" wide at the top, 7.5" wide at the bottom, and 2" deep.
The embroidery designs shown on the flaps of our sample purses are not included. You can find them in the following design sets: Lambkins, Wildflower Friends, Curly Applique Alphabet, Happy Hedgies, Fiesta Flowers, Elegant Roses and Sea Breezy.
NOTE! The last 3 photos below show how these larger sizes compare with the original Bonbon Purses: The smallest purse (with the Rascally Rabbit Face design) is from the original Bonbon Purses set, and the two larger sizes are from this set!
