Look at this cute citrus purse that can be made to resemble your favorite fruit. What a different idea and people will not stop talking about it. This one is made of leather and even though it seems a little harder to make it will be well worth it. I think I would start and do one out of felt first for a little girl so you can get the hang of it before sewing the leather and it is a little pricy. Would you not like having one in every fruit too? Thanks for the tutorial.

This is so adorable! This would be such a fun gift for anyone with a summer birthday. I am also astounded by the durability of the leather exterior. This is a bag that will wear well from every beach excursion to museum outing to summer picnic.
