U R Priceless...indeed!

I love the name of this blog hop.  Very catchy!  If you missed the first day, click on the button up on the right and you can see Monday's schedule.  It is worth a look.  They are awesome.  These little coin purses are so much fun to make and I knew one wouldn't be enough.  Here we go...

 This was my first try.  It was sew easy, almost too easy if you know what I mean.  I used Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille.  I love that line.  I fussy cut a bit for the front and back and stitched the top on with red Pearl cotton.
 I am very happy with the way this one turned out.  The red print on the sides is one of my very favorites in the whole collection.
 I lined the inside with the pink hounds tooth check.  You can see a bit of the stitching inside.
 And it is a coin purse after all, so I wanted to see how it performed.  Pretty good, don't you think?  You would be amazed at how many coins it holds!
 This is the second one I made.  I used Odds & Ends by Julie Comstock.  I love the fabric, but I didn't like the way it turned out as much as the first one.  I think it seems washed out in comparison.
 And I tried crimping the top a bit to help hide the stitching inside.  It didn't really work.  It only made the clasp not really go together very well.  So that one was a bust.
 But I couldn't stop there.  I had a charm pack of Oh Deer!  I love these little tiny deer!  I cut the front, back and sides out of 4 different colors.  I Love this one too.
Here is the other side.

 For the inside I used bright orange with white dots.  I am still in love with polka dots.
And yes, I had to put the coins in this one too.  In case you are wondering, this is a handful of small change topped with 2 1/2 rolls of quarters.  I had it in my head to photograph this way and I must say, it is about as I imagined it.  Such fun.  I still have one more frame, but haven't decided what fabric to use on it yet.

Now go and see all the other wonderful coin purses today's fabulous ladies have made.  Thanks to Madame Samm and Katherine for another great hop.  It is truly a joy to participate in these.  Here are the other Ladies for today:

  2. Oh, Charlotte! Such sweet coin purses - vintage modern is a favourite fabric of mine and looks divine made into a coin purse. What a fun idea to see just how many coins they can hold! lol

    Thanks so much for being a fun stop on the hop.

  20. I love all of them! It's so fun to see how much it holds...wow! The deer one is priceless! My stitching showed on some of my purses until I switched to the same color thread as the lining--it still showed, but not as much.

  59. Wonderful, wonderful purses to hold all your coins!!! It took a little longer when I stitched mine, but that is because I went back through the same exact spot that I came out through the lining, so that the threads dont show.

    Blessings & Aloha!
