Send the youngest guests home with favors of their own: change purses filled with penny candy.


  • Colorful felt

  • Scissors

  • Pins

  • Buttons

  • Adhesive Velcro¬†

  • Needle and thread


  1. Enlarge template to 250 percent (first photocopy at 200 percent, then at 125). Cut out and pin to colorful felt; cut a top and bottom shape for each purse.

  2. Sew buttons to one shape. Stitch both shapes together around edges with embroidery thread; leave an opening by sewing through top layer only for about 2 inches.

  3. Add an adhesive Velcro closure so goodies don't spill out.
