Coin Purse Blog Hop and Giveaway

Today is November 5th......which brings the start of the UR Priceless coin purse blog hop and IHAN® is also doing a giveaway.  I had not planned on breaking my hand and being on painkillers when I wrote this post....but that is my reality today.   I'm going to show the some coin purses I made and some that  friends helped me make as well. 

 These were made using the pattern we were provided for this hop.  The one in front is a re-purposed Brighton jewelry bag.  
 I really like the fabric used in this bag so I saved it thinking I would use them to make some of MJ's Bag Tags.  Instead I decided to make a coin purse.  

When the coin purse is opened there is a little message for the person I'm giving this one to;
 a little note inside :)

 I found a tutorial that taught me how to make coin purses in any shape I wanted HERE.  I then made the coin purses below:

 "Coin purses are not just for girls" according to my co-workers...LOL.  I made one that would attach to their backpacks.


Creepy ay?
Bugs on the inside too....yuck!

Naturally I made a hexagon shaped coin purse....I love this fabric too.
Flowers inside too.

This was made from upholstery fabric.

I didn't get as far as putting a frame on this one yet and I really like the fabric for this one too.

The next coin purses were a collaboration with  Textile Artists, Ruth Chandler , Jean Overmeyer and myself.  Ruth sketched the pattern and Jean made them come to life.
Phillip Jacobs Chrysanthemum fabric....oh you know I love this fabric.
Didn't Jean do a wonderful job of making these coin purses?  Yes...she fussy cut my  fabric and it is a good thing I love her...LOL.

Giveaway....oh yeah!  

Hoffman Batiks are beautiful and these will make more than a few coin purse.  Also included are these two coin purse frames.  Just be a follower of the IHAN® blog and leave a comment on this post for your chance to win.  A winner will be drawn at random on November 13th, the last day of the blog hop.

If you would like to make some coin purses too....IHAN® has a nice inventory ready to ship :)

Make sure you visit the other blogs who are participating in the blog hop:

  62. Kelly-I appreciate you providing the link for the tutorial as it looks easy, but it's always helpful to have a step-by-step approach as I am a "visual" learner. So much fun and it looks like it's a great way to use scraps, which we all have an in abundance. It appears to be mildly addicting! Thanks for sharing, and I'd love to win your generous giveaway.

  110. Inspirational. What great gifts these would make for Christmas, Birthdays, and more. Darn, I didn't think of making these for a fundraiser this weekend as they'd also be great in the silent auction/raffle baskets.

    Your quilting friends did a great job making these. Love all their ideas, shapes, fussy cutting. Inspirational to say the least. And, of course, I think they'd really look cute in Hoffman Fabrics too!

  145. aww Kelly, i wish i had thought of adding a special note inside my wedding purse.... but mine would have to be hand stitched I just have a regular machine. Maybe I can still add their names and the date inside by hand (will probably be very fiddly?? or maybe I'll have to make another and the first one can be for my granddaughter, :D

    your fabrics are great (fussy cut, oh my, and all, love the creepy buggy one, lol) but your purse chapes are fantastic, lots of cool styles!! What a huge amount of fun you had!!!
