UR Priceless blog hop and giveaway


How exiting, today is my turn to hop, and show you my coin purses. I am so in love with them I called them Romantic & Sweet. And they are going to become very special gifts... more on that soon!

I made The Romantic purse with some flowery fabric I had in my stash, and loved combining the two of them to make it look a bit retro.


For this one I used a sew in frame, and a pale pink thread to match the tones. I love the fabric on the sides, with its smaller flowers it was the perfect combination.
The lining inside is a simple green solid, I just didn't want to draw any attention to it and let the outside fabrics be the star.

For The Sweet purse, I used a strip of this lovely elephant fabric, that I am using for some of the projects in my shop (stay tuned for that one too) and matched it with a solid green fabric. Inside the lining is plain cream linen, again don't want many people to look at how much I carry on the purse lol.


In this case I used a normal frame... it is not as easy to work as the sew in, but I love the final product regardless, and those elephants pop out so nicely... it is just so sweet!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Mdm Samm for her explanations and step by step guidance... as well as helping me out with my lack of proper resources around! And to Katherine from Sew Me Something Good (it is also her turn to hop today) who is our lovely cheerleader for this hop.

And please don't forget to check out all the other hops today
