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.
