Coin Purse


I'm back and it's now December.

Season of Giving is here!!!
And here's one gift idea ---  a Felt Appliqued Canvas Coin Purse

Actually, It's my first time to do a coin purse.
My best friend asked me to do some coin purse and to have some felt on its design.
They will be giving it as Christmas Gifts.

And this is what I came up.

I started with 6 designs for a sample.
1st Row : Pig, Hippo and Chicken
2nd Row : Tiger, Dog and Fox

I added Jingle Bells for Christmassy effect.

I coordinated the colors of the zippers with that of major color of the applique.
I am beginning to like zippers now... I am starting to collect some, hehehe.

 Each of the animal applique is hand sewn to the Canvas purse.

And my Best friend loved it.
Took the 6 samples, and ordered 18 more and requested for 6 new designs.
1st Row : Elephant, Cow, Penguin
2nd Row : Owl, Zebra, Monkey



Have done 34 pieces and now doing 38 pieces more and I'm loving it!!!!

You can see the individual photos of my coin purse at my FB page.
Please do take some time to visit and like my Page as I often update what I'm doing there compared here in my blog. Why FB page? For convenience sake :)

Black and White Felt Wedding

My very first wedding project made out of felt. 

At first I was very hesitant to do these, since the last time I did wedding accessories was on my very own wedding and that was almost 6 years ago.

Very challenging job but at the end it was very satisfying.
I do hope the couple (my college classmates), who will be walking down the aisle on September 1, 2012, will love it too.

My job was made easy because of the generous persons who shared their ideas, patterns and tutorials on the net.

Here are my inspirations:

I made the patterns using INKSCAPE. I am so willing to share the pattern of this Quiet Book but unfortunately I was not able to arrange it very well. Hopefully, if time permits (I am really very busy now!) I will be able to edit it and post it as a freebie.

Inspired!!! Go ahead and make one for your kiddos!!!
