One of the benefits of having two sisters is that I have two guinea pigs to test out purses. Both seesters have birthdays in August and September, so I made the Owl Mini-Bag for Kricket and since Elli (by the way, did you see that she’s giving away a new Stitch n’ Bitch book?) wanted a new Lickety Split I decided to make her a Mini-Bag too. She liked the red duck one I made for myself (it’s also shown below) so much I almost gave her that one, but I knew she would never turn down a bag with more pockets. So I did four pockets inside and outside, meaning it is completely reversible. I knew she loved it when she immediately stuffed a knitting project into it.

Here you can really see the size difference between the Mini-Bag and the original Lickety Split:
The instructions for making a mini-bag from the Lickety Split Bag Sewing Pattern are here, and they’re brief but passable if you want to make your own. And here’s the original: Lickety Split Sewing Pattern
I did take step-by-step pictures of this one as I made it so if there’s interest I could sell the pieces/instructions for this one separately and/or bundle it with the original to include separate mini-bag pattern pieces plus step-by-step instructions for both. I’ve gotta be honest though I’m a little “meh” about turning this into another project when I’ve got other new things flying around in my head that are vying for my attention. There’s alot of time commitment involved so if what you have on the blog already is enough to get by, let’s just leave it that way, y’know what I’m saying?
If you’ve made a Lickety Split or mini-bag recently, be sure to add it to our photo pool!
