To Coin a Purse

Still have lots of good photos and new lil’ things to share.

This coin purse was sewn from part of a dogfood bag, which happens to be organic food I might add! (I hope the person who gave the bag to me decides to continue buying that food…it’s very unique packaging.) The lining is from scrap fabric—I think it looks good with the shiny-gold outside. Although each of these coin purses are one of a kind, I may have to make myself one from another part of this particular gold plastic.

I also have a purse already cut out from the same dogfood bag, which will be hard for me to give away once I’m done with it!

I’ve got quite a few projects that I would like to get done before Christmas, so between working and eating and sleeping, the projects will have to start taking priority! (Has it really already been a whole year since I was last saying this to myself?!)
