During the last O+S pattern sale, I bought Feed the Animals Coin Purses pattern with the intention of making my girls coin purses for xmas. K. requested one for her teacher, too, so I got both girls to pick fabric and cut out 4 purses. I started early with the best of intentions but I kept putting them aside for other projects because I really wasn't enjoying making them. I should know by now that I'm too impatient to make anything with too many little pieces.
And this week, of course, I have no time. So I decided to pack it in. My girls were disappointed (about the ones for the teachers, they didn't know about the ones for them) until I whipped up these:
I used the poochie bag tutorial over at Happy Zombie except without the "pooch". The top fabric is Premier Prints from fabric.com and the bottom is voile from girlcharlee.com. The grey on both is quilters linen from Hawthorne Threads. Three bags in one evening is doable. Trying to finish those coin purses was not :).
