UR Priceless Blog Hop

I've been a busy bee working on finishing up my patterns. I am so happy to be able to take a break and make my coin purses. Isn't it fun to look at all the wonderful coin pouches during this hop? A big THANKS to Madame Samm and Katherine for putting this hop together.

Madame Samm's pattern is really easy to put together. I love the clear instructions with step-by-step photos. My girls loved my finished purse. They came home from school, saw it on the diningroom table and just smiled, even hubby thought I should make more. I have more handles so I will definitely be making more, just have to get some work done first ;-D
This pattern is a winner! You can purchase Madame Samm's pattern here.

Fabric is from Joel Dewberry's Heirloom collection



I couldn't stop at one so I made two. The fabrics were a gift from hubby a couple of years ago. The fabric is from Makower UK called Felicity's Stash

I totally loved your purses but especially the pink one with buttons, etc. on it. One of the buttons looked like it was a real button and I did wonder if it part of the fabric or not. :) Cute bag patterns; the tool caddy is my favorite.
