Friendship Star Puzzle Purse

I finished stitching this piece many weeks ago and put it together a couple of weeks ago, but I've been too busy to post, or stitch, since then :-(

This cute little item is by the Prairie Sample. I thought it was one of the most clever designs I've seen. The stitching was very easy and the assembly was not too tough either. The hardest part was getting it folded correctly the first time! Fortunately the designer included a paper template with the pattern. Without that I doubt I'd ever have gotten it right. The series of pictures shows it in several different views. When it's all folded up you can keep needles or a thimble in the middle.

This is all of the stitching that gets done:

This is what it looks like partially folded:

This is what it looks like all folded up:

How cute is that??

Just stumbled across your blog while looking for something special to make for a PIF gift. This is would be perfect for me to stitch for the gift. Can you tell me where you can find the pattern.
