As always, a huge thanks goes to Madame Samm for setting up all of these fabulous hops as well as providing a terrific and easy pattern. Thanks also to to our cheerleader Katherine of Sew Me Something Good who kept all of us purse peeps informed. By the way, the Chaka Khan song Tell Me Something Good keeps popping in my head every time I think of Katherine--LOL! I also want to thank Corrie at Quilt Taffy and Kelly and the elves at IHAN for their help with those special supplies.
I made two coin purses and they were inspired by my love of travel. Last month I visited London for a week and had a blast so naturally I wanted to make something to remind me of one of my most favorite places on the planet.
And who wouldn't love the London Tube map fabric used as the lining.
Guinness thought the fabric I selected for my purse pocket was purrfect and it even holds his Petsmart savings card which he really appreciates.
The second coin purse was made as a reminder to save my pennies for Paris which is also one of the best places ever. I can't make up my mind if I like London or Paris best so until I can figure it out it looks like I'll have to visit each city over and over again.
Overall I had fun making the coin purses and never dreamed I would complete one, let alone two. The handles were a bit of a challenge at times as well as a corner or two but the good news is I still have a few handles left and so I will get a chance to try again and again.
