Had a busy labor day, working on coin purses for my 5 granddaughters.
They will have a little surprise inside, and be a back to school gift.
(Still thinking of something for the 6 boys!)
PapertreyInk Coin Purse die, and a new die set for me,
Stitched Folk Flower.
Also added a few blooms from: Sewing Staples: Floral Clusters.
On a few of them, wool felt scraps, I had tucked away.
1st one I did, with the whole large die of Folk Flowers.
Didn't like the placement, (a bit high).
Moving the whole die down, and putting a bandaid on the bottom,
so as not to cut holes where I didn't want them,
I ran the top (Pinefeather) through my die cutter.
A few seed beads dress it up a bit.
Decorated the inside corner with a red bloom.
It was so easy doing them from now on!
Melon Berry, Terracotta Tile, & Aqua Mist.
This one in plum & white wool felt (my stash), & Scarlett Jewel.
Love the Sweet Blush felt with the plaid.
Inside with a single bloom.
And a look at the open purses, with a bit of detailing in each corner.
Honestly, when you find a design you like, it's hard to stop!
And setting up an assembly line, you move rather quickly.
Hope you've enjoyed a peek at my 'labor day'.
And hope yours was just as crafty!
Since the dies I used (PTI's Sewing Staples: Floral Clusters) was a
NBUS, also entering this post in Darnell's Challenge'
where it's 'anything goes'.
