Sounds of Silence....

Sorry for the silent blog of late....
No....I wasn't at the Sewing Summit, but I did have plenty of sewing with friends....it has just been a very busy weekend!  I would have loved a visit to the Summit, but college books {and fabric buying} are priority at our house so no trip to the summit this year :)

Little by little, I have been building up my collection of Japanese fabrics.  Now I am ready to create my own 'fabric' to use in Christmas gift making....

     
This coin purse will be a great little gift to tuck into a bag.....


Just an easy two piece purse template with some fun raw edge applique....

   
Add some fun lining fabric and batting between the layers....


A sweet button or a snap and there you have it!!!

  
Hope you had a wonderful weekend - did you go to the Sewing Summit...or maybe sew with friends :) 

Happy Monday!

  3. Fabulous purse Mary! The colours have a vintage feel topped off with a cute button! What a pleasure it would be to use, even if I do find, sometimes, having a purse of coins a nuisance! ;-)
