Simplicity Change Purse with the Cricut Maker

I’ve been enjoying sewing with the Cricut Maker. When the folks at Cricut asked if I’d share how to put together the Simplicity Change Purse, I was excited. The Simplicity Change Purse is a simple project to make, and it is made even easier when all the cutting is done by the Cricut Machine.

This simple change purse is such a handy bag to have on hand. Store some change, a few cards, maybe a power cord and an external charger – and you’re set for the day! And they make great gifts! Pick out fabric that reminds you of the person you’re making it for, and stitch one up!

I love that Cricut has partnered with Simplicity to make sewing even easier. I find so much satisfaction in making and sewing – that the Simplicity patterns are all set and ready to go makes it that much easier for me to stitch up something fun for a friend, or for myself!

  1. Your video was awesome. Very explanatory. I made one and it came out better than I ever expected. Thank you so much for the time and patience you applied.

  2. do you know if this pattern is still available in design space? I can’t find it and I would love to make one for a college student

      Unfortunately, it is not. It looks like Cricut no longer has the Simplicity patterns in Design Space.
