This was an experiment. I have (and LOVE) Kelli Nina Perkin's book "Stitch Alchemy". In the book she gives instructions for a paper cloth purse. This is it – i had to alter it a little as I used quilt batting in between the paper cloth and the cotton lining. This created too much bulk to fold the edges in, so I improvised with some gross grain ribbon. The paper cloth was made with tissue paper, old ledger papers, wrapping paper and old sewing patterns. My sewing skills need alot of work but this was fun to make.
