U R Priceless Blog Hop

Hi everyone and Welcome to day 4 on the U R Priceless Blog Hop!





Have you checked out all the little cuties that are being made? Wow! Lots of different styles- novelty, sophisticated, embroidered, monogrammed, no limit to the imagination. Over 100 little purses!

I would like to Thank Madam Samm over at http://www.sewwequilt.com for the wonderful pattern and great instructions! The many photos and fun instructions (she instructs you in it  that it is now time to take a break - a 23 minute break! LoL! ) were easy to follow. I would also like to thank Katherine over at http://www.sewmesomethinggood.blogspot.ca/ for organizing and being the Cheerleader for this hop- great communication and organization!

So comment away! We all love comments don't we!

Ok on to my little creation :)



I used VeloCity City Scene at Night for the front and back of the coin purse. I think it really is an interesting fabric in a large piece and then to cut it down made it very abstract looking--not a bad thing for a modern little coin purse! On the sides I used Too Muchery in Orange. and the lining is Metro Living Circles in Carrot. I just love the orange and navy combination!


Here is the bottom of the little purse, it meets nicely in the center for a diamond or hourglass look.


A peek inside at the lining


And I finished it with a heavy duty thread in coral for a bit of pizazz!

Overall this little purse was pretty easy to make. Didn't take too long - probably about an hour or two. The hardest part was sewing on the frame but once you get the hang of it, it goes pretty fast. I plan on making more of these as Christmas gifts.  Cuz you know...after you make the first one, they are kinda addictive and you start to thinking about all the people you could make them for and what great fabric pics you could use and customize the purse to that person! Alot of Fun!

So leave me some comment love and tell me what you think, and be sure and stop by the rest of the blogs on today's tour listed below and leave comments for a chance at winning some great prizes :)

Happy Sewing!

Ginny
