How-To Make Easy Sparkling Barbie Doll Purses (Beginner Barbie Craft Series Project 4)

By Starr Durrant


What Barbie doesn’t like a fabulous  collection of designer hand bags?  Make these super cute and easy Barbie doll purses and create your own line of Barbie designer dreams bags! Each bag takes less than a minute to make, the supplies are available at most dollar or craft stores and no sewing required! This would be a great project for a birthday party activity.

Barbie Purse


I used glitter foam sheets (self adhesive back) from the dollar store. It comes in a variety of colors and is super easy to work  with. If you can’t find this you could use fancy paper.

String, cord, elastic, wool, narrow ribbon – something that will work as a purse strap

Bead or jewel for latch

Easy N0-Sew Barbie Purse

 Cut a piece of the sparkly foam into what ever size purse you like. An average size would be 2″ X 3/4 inch (remember the strip you cut will be bent in half) For a clutch cut a shorter length.


Peel of back to expose self adhesive


Take one end of a string (purse strap) and stick it in the middle to one side. Use a longer string for shoulder strap and shorter for hand bag.


Loop the string under and attach the other end to the sticky surface

Flip the strip over bending it in the middle and squeezing the ends of the strip in- between.


Cut out a triangle from another color for the flap.


Remove paper from back of triangle flap and adhere to purse.


Attach a stick on gem or bead for latch.
