Heavenly Handbags

Here's what I made this week. Every year for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) we do an outreach project. This year we participated in Heavenly Handbags. This is the purse I made for it. The material is donated to the organization (scraps and remnants) and they provided me with a pattern. This purse will be filled with travel-sized toiletry items for women at our local community shelter and safehouse. It's a great organization and this month the group is donating 10 handbags. MOPS moms collected enough toiletries to fill 7 handbags!!!!!



Pattern was easy and it came together pretty fast (minus the fact I had the worst stomach bug for 4 days while I had to make this.....). I will be making more purses. I just heard from the woman at Heavenly Handbags and for June they will be doing something different. They will be donating purses filled with housewarming items for women in Guatemala who's husbands were killed in war. There's a group going down there to build 8 homes for these widows and then they will each get a purse. How nice!!!! I will be making at least one more purse for this trip. If anyone in Durango is interested in sewing a purse for Heavenly Handbags, let me know and I can get you contact information.

  1. Ellen, I'm interested in sewing a handbag. If you want to bring the info to MOPS I'll try to remember to get it from you there.
