Sewing: Coin Purses
Yesterday he asked if I could make two gifts...
Yes, you heard correctly...yesterday!
They needed to be little..only big enough to hold a silver dollar.
And one had to be teal and one had to be pink/purple.
So today I was a sewing fairy...working all afternoon on two little coin purses.
It's a good thing I went to Sew Modern last Saturday..I used some of the Birds and the Bees from Tula Pink for the pink/purple purse that I had picked up...with a pink hummingbird lining. And the tree almost stands perfectly center!
I had to dig into my Japanese fabrics for the teal. I love this print, practicing my fussy-cutting skills again to show off the bright green bird. As for the lining, it's a teal dot...perfect for this bag.
For a first attempt at coin purses, I think I did pretty good...I only stuck myself once with the needle while sewing the bag to the frame, and now they'll sit on the table overnight while the glue dries.
I think I need to make myself one now....
