Yeah, It's a Panty Purse

My husband's first reaction:  "Are you really gonna be whipping that out
of your purse?"  
How does one go from posting the elegant little Japanese knot bag to a panty bag in a matter of days?  It's Sandra of 's fault because she made some of these that were so freakin' cute I had to give it a try, too.

Look--all lined and everything!

Sandra also nicely directed me to the free pattern and tutorial.  It's in Chinese, but Google Translator translates well enough to get the idea.  If you've not done a lined, zippered bag before, check out a YouTube video tutorial or two.  That should be enough for anyone to give this a try.  I enlarged it to use with the 7" zipper on hand.

Before you get started, stop here to see Sandra's versions.  She has all kinds of little extras that make these even more special.


  1. This cracked me up! What a fun departure from the usual sewing projects you see out there.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. It's an unusual sewing project. I can't picture myself carrying one of these, but it would be great as a gag gift.

    I found this post through the Creative Bloggers' Party and Hop at Homemaker on a Dime.

  3. Fun !!! I wonder what other shapes would work well ....

  4. WOOOOOOOHOoooooooooooooo you did it and it's adorable!! Love the fabric and the ribbon embellishment --- tie a piece of the ribbon onto the zipper! ;)

  5. My husband would die if I pulled that out of my purse. Ha,ha,ha. I think it is rather cute! Thanks for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday!

  6. Oh my gosh! So funny!! Yet super cute!!
