Felt Change Purse

This Felt Change Purse is a fun project for Junior and Cadette scouts who are older than the interest of most craft projects, and old enough to be trusted with a needle.  This project takes 1-2 hours to do, depending on how adept the girls are with a needle and thread.  Of course, you can split this into two meetings with doing the cutting & prep work in one meeting and the actual assembly of the purses in another.  There’s a great video on how to do the blanket stitch mentioned:
