Jean Purse

28 Feb

Spinning for 50 repins

Described as “If only I could sew”

Pinterest fact:  One commenter provided an email address for her grandmother who makes and sells these while another commenter mentioned that her 6 year old made one at camp.

rule of thumb:  if grandmothers and 6 year olds are the experts on the project you’re eyeing, then maybe you should try another project.

i’d like to just quote one pinner who said “it’s got everything! red and denim! woop woop!”  woop, woop indeed.

Pinterest fact*:  One pinner pinned this off of our “D.I.Why?” board to her “Crafty-kins” board.
