UR Priceless Blog Hop Is Here

UR5

 I must say I have been waiting for this for months.  I thought that this blog hop was to start in October.  Not sure what I was thinking about.  Anyway it gave me more time to finish, and get more purse closers and make more.

I like to thank Madame Samm and Katherine for hosting this most exciting blog hop.  The coin purses will make great gifts for friends and family members.

I must say that I was very intimidated in putting the closures on, put once I got the first one on o.k. it was a breeze.  I could not stop, although I will only be showing 5, I am still make more to match bags that I am making.

The other problem I had was sewing the lining in the purse.  I could not do it with the pins, so what I did was hand baste the lining then sewed it in with the machine.  So now let me present to you my coin purses.  Oh one more thing, each time I left the house I forgot to take my purses with me so I could get a good photo op at the fabric store, the grocery store, or any place I spend money.  It was a good idea, but maybe next time when I show you the other coin purses I will be making soon.

First up is my ABC bag with matching coin purse.  The inside of the coin purse is dark brown batik.

I still had some poke-a-dot fabric left, so all four sides has a different color poke-a-dot.  Red, green, blue and orange.

You got a look at these little ladies in a earlier blog, put might not have know what it was.  This was the first one I made to try out the pattern to see if I could make it.  Got to pay that electric bill.

Here is my fall leaf coin purse.  I made this for a person in my church.  I made a bag of this same fabric.  Hope she likes it. 

Last of my coin purses is this little beauty also in batik fabric.  And here is a group picture.

These are soooo addictive.  You can make so many in just a short time, and then sit back and watch your favorite t.v. show and sew on the closures.  I really enjoyed this Blog Hop.  It is always nice to have a finish project.  All my friends are wanting one of these coin purses, so I guess I better get back to work.

Do forget to check out the other blog hoppers who will be showing there purses today.
