An easy stitched chain purse.
This is a project I added to the site ages ago, but it mysteriously went missing when we changed server.

Anyway, this was a present for my friend <a href="http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/users/65">Miquette</a>.

This is very cute and I'm going to use this idea/pattern to make tooth fairy pillows for my two granddaughters and three grandsons. It will be a place where they can leave their tooth and the tooth fairy can leave their money.
Thanks!
