UR Priceless! coin purse blog hop

 
You know the bad part about being on the last day of a blog hop?  So many fabulous coin purses have already been shown off by very talented folks, and now I have to show my little purse. {gulp}
 
 
 
The fabrics I used were all DS for Joanns - the orange dot that I'm using for the photo background is the lining of the purse.  I do love these three fabrics together, but let's put the purse on something else so it stands out better, ok?
 
 
There, that does it :)
Oh, look at that - she's fallen over with her fanny up in the air
 
 
It's ok little coin purse, just dust yourself off and whistle a little tune - I bet no one even noticed :)
 
 
I bought the frame at Quilttaffy
I do love my little coin purse! I'm very happy with the fabrics & it was fun to sew :)
However, I managed to make a mess of sewing the purse into the frame, which is why I'm not showing a photo of the inside.  I will go back and fix it soon, but she will have to wait until after the craft shows this weekend.   Just to be clear, I take full responsibility for the mistake I made, the pattern is just dandy :)
 
click on the UR Priceless button above for the full blog hop schedule {you really should go check it out, there are some amazing little purses being shown off!}  Today, these fine bloggers are showing their coin purses:
 
 
I'm also going to link up to Fabric Tuesday - head over for adorable baby pictures & tons of quilty/sewing goodness :)

Gorgeous colours. You needn't worry, your purse is just as darling as all the others. You're a star!

Had to laugh though - in Australia "fanny" is the front part of a female, not the behind. That'll give you something to think about next time you use that term. ;)

I love the fabrics you chose! I know what you mean about sewing the handles on the purse. What a pain it was on the first one I did. I used the Clover Wonderclips and it REALLY helped. Good luck and thanks for sharing your creation with us today.
