Ok on to my little creation :)
I used VeloCity City Scene at Night for the front and back of the coin purse. I think it really is an interesting fabric in a large piece and then to cut it down made it very abstract looking--not a bad thing for a modern little coin purse! On the sides I used Too Muchery in Orange. and the lining is Metro Living Circles in Carrot. I just love the orange and navy combination!
Here is the bottom of the little purse, it meets nicely in the center for a diamond or hourglass look.
A peek inside at the lining
And I finished it with a heavy duty thread in coral for a bit of pizazz!
Overall this little purse was pretty easy to make. Didn't take too long - probably about an hour or two. The hardest part was sewing on the frame but once you get the hang of it, it goes pretty fast. I plan on making more of these as Christmas gifts. Cuz you know...after you make the first one, they are kinda addictive and you start to thinking about all the people you could make them for and what great fabric pics you could use and customize the purse to that person! Alot of Fun!
