New Style Coin Purse

Crafting 365, Day 10

I say new, in which i mean different to the other style I've sewn. Its been done before many many times, its not my design and i used this tutorial on Flickr as a base. You can see the zip is in the middle and that the same fabric is used through out but it wasn't too difficult to work out what I wanted to do.

Prototype Coin Purse

The grey one was my first try. Its wonky, it has untidy edges. and turned out a little smaller than i anticipated! But all in all it worked out great and the blue one is the proof of the pudding. A lot neater and tidier, inside and out - no raw edges showing. And bigger, even though i used the same amount of fabric. Not sure how that happened. Practice i suppose!

New Style Coin Purse

Anyways, like i said, not new by any means and they are quicker to whip up than the other style I have done. What do you think?

Glad you liked the tutorial, and I love what you've done with the different lining! Clever!

i think that everyone should have one of those :O

I love it!!! I love the buttons on the blue one. I think it would be cool to make a face, and use the zipper part as a mouth. At least that's what I think of when I see it...

Anyway... Nice work!!!
