From now on we will be making two pages, a front and back. The front is part 2 of the Doll Face Page. The back page is the Purse Page.

Doll Face Part 2 Page

  3. Pin part 2 onto the grey sheet and cut out. 
  4. Pin the two purple part 1's on top of each other and sew all around. 
  5. Pin part 2 on top of the sandwiched part 1 and sew all round. 
  6. Fold part two a little less then half and pin to grey felt and cut out. Place on top of the pink sheet where you want the mirror to be.
  7. Sew all around the bottom leaving the top open to create a pocket. 
  8. Sew a little piece of velcro to the right center "petal" of the mirror.
  9. Place the mirror on top of the pocket and sew the left center "petal" onto the sheet.
  10. Sew the other piece of the velcro next to the pocket where it would match the velcro on the mirror.
  11. Place all of the Doll Face features you created in the previous page inside of the pocket.

Purse Page

Finishing
  • 4 sheets of card stock

  3. Place grommets 3 inches down from top and bottom on the left side with the mirror page facing up.
