Faux Alligator Purse




Isn't this the cutest purse??? Faux Alligator Technique was originated by Jackie Topa. I think the first one to do the purse was Gretchen Barron.

Anyway, this is my version! I used 2 partial Top Notes (for the front and back of the purse) and 1 full Top Note (scored in the middle) for the "flap." A Box #2 die cut forms the inside of the purse. The handle is attached through a jumbo eyelet, and the flap closes with a clear velcro dot.
