My UR Priceless Blog Hop Coin Purse!!

Thanks again to Madame Samm for a super fun challenge and Katherine from Sew Me Something Good for hosting this wonderful hop!!
 I had to create my little purse at the last minute due to my purse handle frame getting lost in the mail. I wanted to make one a little larger so it could be carried as a small hand bag. My coin purse frame is 4 1/2 inches. I created a purse handle using clear tubing I took off a toy and pulled out the center and ran black yarn through and pinched it together using metal cylinders I found in the jewelry section. I chose pink fabrics I had on hand. I really liked the black with pink roses and thought a pink lining would be perfect. I'm going to give this to my grandma as a Christmas gift!! I know she will love it especially since she loves pink!!


Please go see all the wonderful coin purses created by all the other ladies today!!

Bummer, I hate when things get lost in the mail. Your little purse is lovely, clever idea for the handle. I know Grandma will love it. Thank you for sharing.

Pat Converse said...

Love it! Did you enlarge the UR priceless pattern; and, if so, how much. Or, did you draft your own?

Great job!
