U R Priceless Blog Hop Starts Today

A big thank you to Madame Samm for such a lovely pattern and clear instructions, and to Katherine for all her time to get us all organised.
 
When I've made purses before, I used the frames for gluing, so I was a bit nervous about the stitched in method.  I needn't have worried, it was all plain sailing.
I made the orange version first, then was straight on the lookout for the next one. 

I used the fabric leftover from the Lynette Anderson quilt. 
This pattern is perfect for using up small pieces of fabric and batting, and you end up with something perfect for gifts.  I have bought some more frames, and have the fabric chosen for two more purses.  I have two more to choose fabric for.

 
If you would like to make some yourself, Madame Samm is very kindly offering the pattern for sale, just contact her at madamesamm@me.com, with coin purse as the subject.
 
To see what the others have been doing, here is today's list of participants
 
Katherine has the full schedule on the side bar of her blog - http://www.sewmesomethinggood.blogspot.ca/
 
 
I will be having a giveaway, you can choose from one of my completed purses.  I will pick a winner on Tuesday 13th, November.  If  you would like to take part, please let me know in your comments.

Those are so cute! The sewing-in method isn't so scary once you've done it a few times, is it. Excellent way to use up those scraps!
