The Lipstick Purse 18" Doll Accessories


By using this simple pattern by BramBelles Boutique and making some creative choices, you can make a range of personalized and fashionable purses for your dolls. The basic purse construction is no-sew and by mixing and matching some of the options you can create ‘one-of-a-kind’ masterpieces. The two extra handle options can be made in any desired length and an extra clasp option is included with two different ways to decorate the purse front. Mix up the basic purse with any clasp and handle options and the possibilities are many.  Designed for use with 18 inch and similar sized dolls,
