UR Priceless Blog Hop


Today is the first day of the UR Priceless Blog Hop over at Sew We Quilt.   I just couldn't resist this adorable coin purse pattern. You had to be in the swap to get the pattern, so I really had no choice.  Right?  Right! (*Note:  the pattern is now available for $7.50 at Madame Samm's Craftsy pattern shop.)


I found that layer cake squares were the perfect size for these.  I had most of a Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille layer cake left, so the only hard part was choosing which fabrics were the cutest together.  I picked two squares for the outsides, and two squares for the lining, which made two purses.

I bought the handles from I Have a Notion, and they arrived quickly with a sweet note inside.  Thanks!

I don't really use a coin purse, but this is the perfect size to carry my thimble, my binding clips, my tiny scissors, a spool of thread, and a packet of needles.  Voila!  Hand sewing kit ready to go.


 What would you use it for?

There are a whole bunch of us kicking off the hop today.  Be sure to visit these blogs and see all of the cute ideas plus giveaways.


The complete calendar for the entire 9 day hop can be found over at Sew Me Something Good in the sidebar.  Enjoy!

  1. I love it! You used some of my favourite fabrics, Jenny. I agree, it makes a perfect sewing kit. The only thing missing is a bite of chocolate (for energy while you're stitching ;o). Beautifully done.
