New Purse Box in Inches

Hi Guys!
A few of you have been asking me for the directions to this purse box in INCHES.
As you know, Randi was the person who's directions I used to make my first purse box and she is in Europe and so uses metric measurements. Her directions are excellent so if you use metric by all means check out her site!
Since then I have been working on "adjusting " her  pattern for us "Inchie People"
You can see my complete tutorial in inches here.

Keep in mind that my directions will not make the exact same size purse as Randi's. It will be about an inch larger all around. But I have tried to stay true to the shape as much as I could.


I plan on filling it with candy. I think every craft table needs one!


So there ya go! I hope you can go and have some fun now!
I would like to enter this in:
OLLCB: Pink!
Bunny Zoe: Flowers
The pink elephant: buttons lace and ribbon (buttons are in the flowers on the sides of the purse)
Fresh Brewed: Ribbons and Bows

Hi,you are a lovely girlie,I'm in Europe but I'm afraid to say that I still work in inches,I mean,does anyone actually know or even care about the metric exchange of 12x12 papers? I think not! This certainly would look rather nice on my craft desk full of sweets though I'm ashamed to say,my desk is usually so heaped up that it might not get seen too often,might make one for the coffee table instead! Hope you're getting through those silks :) Julie.x
