I recently bought some lovely 100% cotton fabric from a fabulous Folksy shop called Stitch Me Lane Fabrics (well worth a visit). The fabric is made by Moda and is called 'santa's little helpers'. It's such a fun design showing lots of sock monkey mugshots wearing Santa hats.
These little purses would be super for Christmas stocking fillers - especially if you put a few chocolate coins inside!
The measurements are 11cms wide x 9.5cms high. I've used beige zippers and have lined them with a silky bright green fabric. Each one has a decorative ribbon tag in matching colours sewn into the seam.
