|Something Sweet and Pink|
which became a gift for another of my nieces.

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!
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).

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.
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)

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".

The back panel reveals my love of polka dots. A few crystals add a bit of sparkle here as well.
