UR Priceless

UR Priceless!

You can’t eat just one potato chip or make just one UR Priceless Coin Purse! Unfortunately you can run out of handles!
I have 3 finished purses, 4 sans handles and 1 on the machine because I forgot to cut enough side pieces. And many more planned. This purse was way too much fun to make- and I hate to hand sew. I did enjoy putting the handles on - maybe because the holes were there to guide me? I used coats and clark machine quilting thread and had no problem except when I got the thread caught on the clasp.



My first purse (actually it was the first one I planned to make but I actually made it toward the end)   is already in Oklahoma with a very dear dear friend. After hearing the title of this hop, how could I *NOT* make a purse out of this fabric?  I bought a ton of it- maybe I will make a matching bag?


Stanley had to check it out- He noticed the
handle was made with the clasp not centered!
After my initial confusion of the first few steps – (I tried to pin it sideways and it took me an hour to figure out what I was doing wrong.) Madam Samm’s instructions were amazing and fun to follow (the confusion was ALL me –had nothing to do with the instructions.)

I bet it would be fun to take a class from her in real life!

 
This is Breast Cancer Pink Ribbon Fabric
but I didn't notice the ribbons were hidden- I should have fussy cut it

This was actually the first one I made

sorry about the wreath bits in the backgrounds

I used upholstery fabric from a swatch board (that I found at a yard sale) for the sides of the owls and butterflies. I bought rick rack to put with the black and white checked ones but haven’t added it yet.



As you can see, I am in the midst of crafting
 for our Bazaar- I made 3 wreaths in-between
blogging and pictures

Such sweet coin purses, Bobbie. Yes, making them is as addictive! You chose such fun fabrics to make yours, I especially like the breast cancer pink ribbon fabric with that black/white gingham. Awesome!
