coin purse

K, so for my naughty notions challenge I decided  to make this coin purse

and just add some cute embelishments.
This is my version.

You can click on there tutorial for more detailed instructions. I didn't use the same measurements as the tutorial, I just kinda followed there technique the above pic is the stitches I sewed to make the fabric gather.

just kinda work with it then iron it down so you can put your cordinating strap over the gathered stitches

right here i sewed a green strap to it and the flower is made out of felt.
I just used my scallop scissors and cut circles out then stacked them on each other. Pretty easy.
then I hot glued the pearls on.
 I wasn't sure what other notions to put on it without making it look tacky.

here is the back of it.

And I love this clip. I can hook it on my purse, or a key chain!

Thanks for looking! I'm entering this in the Naughty Notions Party!

  2. It's really lovely! Using the scalloped scissors on the circles was brilliant. I'm totally stealing that idea! Great work. I bet you're going to really motivate the rest of us to finish our entries as well.
