Before we get to my Cuteness tho,I need to give a couple shout outs ;)
A Gigantic Thank You to Madame Samme for thinking up this Blog Hop full of Cuteness,and for so generously giving each and every one of the participants a Free Pattern to make our coin purses from :) You Rock Madame ;)
Also a Big Thank You to Katherine our Awesome CheerLeader,for organizing us and being there to answer any and Every question. You also Rock Katherine ;) You can find the Schedule for the entire Hop on Katherine's blog on the side bar.
Without further ado......
Frist up,a salute to fall,with butterflies,leaves and a sunflower button for embellishment.
A peek inside,the lining is made using the same fabrics,just in reverse order.
Purse number two is made from a scrap of decorator/upholstery fabric. I used hand quilting thread to sew the frames to the purses. I tried to use colors that coordinated with the colors in the fabrics and also the frames.
My third little cutie,you know I had to make a sunflower one,right? ;) Well here she is,the sides of this one are made with a pale yellow batik sunflower print,which matches perfectly. Although you can't really see the sunflowers,I know they are there :)
The lining used for this one is a deep purple with gold butterflies allover! Although I was very nervous to make my first one of these,I quickly got over that! The tutorial that Madame Samm made for us was super easy to follow,and she was quick to answer questions :) The only problem I had was keeping the frame centered on the purse while sewing. Once I figured that out it was smooth sailing.
For my last one I used a Kokopelli/pottery print fabric. Kokopelli is a Big favorite of mine :) The sides are a coordinating South Western Print in Turquoise.
Here are all of my little pretties together,in random order.
Bottoms up ;) If you have not yet had the opportunity to make a coin purse,you don't know what you have been missing! Let me just say,after making one,the bug has bitten! They are quite addicting,I was seeing these in so many of the prints in my stash.... if it were not for the fact that I only had four frames..... I Need to Buy More Frames ASAP!!!
I intended to have a Giveaway too,however I forgot to contact Madame Samm about purchasing the pattern,and then having her send it to the winners :( So I will still be having the giveaway,and will work out the details with Madame Samm.
