Another Week Almost Over??

Something happened--this week disappeared!
 I have had my nose buried in machine quilting, and I guess I'm making progress--but it's hard to tell! 
Since I can't show my progress on that, this is something else I've been working on:
I will be teaching a class for this coin purse at Colorz next Wednesday.
 It's the perfect size for all those quilt shop punch cards we accumulate....
 or other special little treasures!

I used French General fabrics--a linen blend on the outside and a cotton print for the lining.

 The linen fabric was embellished with embroidery before sewing the body of the coin purse, and  part of the class will be learning to do the beading on the frame.
I think it's going to be a fun class!

Needle and Thread Thursday


  1. What a fabulous little coin purse! I wish I was close enough to come to the class! Have a lovely weekend! I'm off walking in the Lake District.... hope it doesn't rain! :) x

  2. I love your little purse, especially the way you have embroidered the outside fabric. I wish I could teleport myself to your class!

  3. Your little purse is delightful!

  4. Ohmygosh--that coin purse is just amazing--I have a very old one my Grandfather used to use everyday that is just holding together.. I find that the newer wallets don't have enough space it seems. The Fr. General fabrics are perfect for this! Lovely work as ever...hugs, Julierose

  5. Wow. That's so nice. I want to take the class. :)

  6. I remember a time when most every lady carried little coin purses. I can remember my grand-father had a leather one he carried for his coins, Your coin purse is very pretty.

  7. I love the way you have embellished the fabric before using it, such a clever touch.
