Something new ! :: Swap Anyone?

New shop item. Totally unexpected, but very much loved by me and my little Sophia. Today Sophie were playing dress up (my favorite game too) After a brief little pow wow (yes we talk to each other, me more then her you know) We decided to make a mini purse.

I dug out my purse supplies box from when I used to make bags and Key fob's, and we both started looking through it. Then we went through my Japanese scrap bin and found the coolest fabrics ever for our purses. No paper, no drawing, not really much math was involved either. But look what came out of that!.
Our first one (Sophie's purple deer purse) was CUTE, very time consuming but worth it.

I will get some pictures of Sophie with her new purse tomorrow (she loves the little purple deer).
Remember when we were all talking about a coin swap? Like September ... Ha!

Anyone still interested? It would be 25 designer fabric coins that measure 5 x. 2.5
(we can change the measurements late if need be) All sent to the host (me) jumble them up, and send them back out all mixed up.
Then the other idea was to have a flicker group with the quilt or other project we made with them.
Post here if your interested. If enough people still are we will definitely do it.
Hope everyone had a great Monday!

  3. Cute little purses! an idea for you-- a hair curling iron holder w/ the batting used for potholders. Great for on the go--travel. If its made with the batting like a pot holder no waiting for iron to cool down. what do you think?
