This Fannie Pouch is a cute convertible purse that can be snapped to the belt loops of your favorite jeans, or worn with a thin strap as a regular shoulder purse.
The designer made this pouch mostly with her teenage daughters in mind as she wanted them to have a safe place for their phones and some cash when they are out and about with their friends without having to carry real purses around.
The pattern, however, also includes instructions on how to add a thin detachable handle which makes for a lovely convertible pouch that can be worn both attached to belt loops of your favorite jeans or carried as a regular little purse. Instructions on how to add a thin detachable handle are included.
