Monday is my fun-day on the UR Priceless Blog Hop - Day 6

 
Hello and welcome to my stop on the UR Priceless Blog Hop!
 
I have been enjoying the hop so much and for that I want to thank all of the participants (both those that are sharing on their blogs and all the Priceless peeps that leave comments).   I'm glad to be a part of all the fun and happy to know that after today we have another day left on the hop!  Yay!
 
 
I want to thank Madame Samm for the adorable coin purse pattern  that is making us all bit coin purse crazy! lol...  How could we not be...it's such a fantastic design and one that lends itself to so many possibilities....
 
I will admit that I got carried away ... ahem... caught up in making them. lol
 
First I went through my stash for novelty prints...
 
Something Sweet and Pink
 
I thought the cupcake fabric represents this pattern perfectly... as both are cute and sweet.
This pink treat is for one of my nieces.
 
The next novelty print to catch my eye is this treasured bit of Japanese print ...
 
Terrific Terriers
 
which became a gift for another of my nieces.
 
The next print begged to be made into a coin purse for one of my girlfriends.  We always love to chat over a cup of tea and since we both share a love of the colour blue, I know she will love this.

Tea for Two
 
 The reverse side of this coin purse was fussy cut from the same fabric. This time I wanted to represent the love of sewing my friend and I also share.

 
 I have been blessed with wonderful friends and this next coin purse is for a girlfriend that (among many shared interests) I share a love of vintage with.  A few years back she gifted me with a treasured fabric find of a Holly Hobbie print.  She knew how much I would love it as I was into HH as a girl. I still have some HH keepsakes from childhood.  Anyways, I have been waiting to find the perfect project to use some of this special fabric to make a gift for this dear friend.  This is it!

Holly Hobbie

I free hand machine embroidered my friend's intial onto the back of the coin purse (so she knows I won't be keeping it... lol) and used vintage fabrics to make the whole coin purse.


Caught up in coin purse making, I sketched many a variation using Madame Samm's pattern.  Here's the design I made specially for my youngest neice (she's puppy crazy, so I think she'll like this little fellow to put her treasures into).

"Patch" the Pup ;o)
 Ah, ruffles...  I'm so lucky to have nieces, so I can indulge in sewing some girly projects.  This ruffle version was a delight to make.


Ruffle Girl
 
My mom is a coffee person, so when I spotted this print at a shop,  I thought of her.  She always starts her day with a cup of java!
 
 
Coffee Break!

 Sometimes a great fabric only needs the slightest extra... like ric rac!

 
 Remember me saying that when you start with a fabulous design, the possibilities are endless?
 
I decided to go a bit classy with this coin purse.  The fabric is an embossed tweed.
  Lovely on it's own, but then add a velvet ribbon and a shiny buckle and now it's chic. ;o)
 
Buckle Up, Beautiful
 
 Keeping a bit of whimsy in this "classier" version, I used a salt'n pepper polka dot for the lining.  Don't want to take ourselves too seriously, right? ;o)

 
 Last in my line-up is another dressier looking coin purse.  I was channelling a tuxedo here and thought an embroidered insert from a vintage tale runner would work perfectly as the shirt front.  Rather than a button front, a few well placed crystals add just the right amount of sparkle below that special "bow-tie".
 
Black Tie Glitter
 
 
 The back panel reveals my love of polka dots.  A few crystals add a bit of sparkle here as well.

 
 
I think the words printed on the bow tie ribbon sum this hop up for me. :o)
 
Cherish
 
Love
 
Joy
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  It's always a pleasure to have you here and extra special to have this opportunity to be the hostess for this hop. 
 I hope you've had fun and now you know... making coin purses is addictive! lol
 
 
If you didn't visit these ladies earlier, now is your chance! 
 
They're waiting to share and inspire. 
 
 Please see the Priceless coin purses that await you today...
