5 Coinpurses

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.

Much better!
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'.
