UR Priceless.....and a giveaway!

Show Me The Money!
Have you ever made a framed coin purse...?
If not, I do hope that's about to change...
Wednesday November 7, 2012 
Welcome to UR Priceless
blog hop-day #3
The brilliant and talented Madame Samm  has done it again.
Another incredible blog hop! 
She has also enlisted a fantastic cheerleader in
Katherine who blogs at
Sew Me Something Good.
Today, I am going to show you the coin purses I made using the pattern provided by
Madame Samm.
You can purchase the pattern here.
I have made glue in framed purses in the past...

 but this is my first attempt at the
sew in variety.
So, I bought one, two,...okay...more than 3, but less than 10!
The first one I did as a "practice" sample before doing the actual one!!
However, it went together without any problems!


 I used orange perle cotton for the sew-in part, and I must admit, it was not an easy thing for me....nor is it very pretty inside!
I know I'll be taking it apart resewing the frame! 
But I decided to try another one...
I cut out my pretty fabric... and look at that cute frame!
 
 
 Well, the sew-in went so much better on this one, and it helped that the purple perle cotton I used was the same shade as the lining!

The third frame I had was larger than the first two...somewhere around 3.5"
So, I drew out my own pattern for this one.
I also used this amazing tap transfer paper to make my own design on the fabric!!
Since it is a coin purse, I used photos of our colourful Canadian money!

I plan to try it again someday!
and I might even cut it out with the printing going in the right direction :-)
don't judge me! I'm flawed! ;-) ;-)
 
  Oh yeah!
Loving this one too!
and look! no stitches showing on the inside!
I really love the copper colour of the frame too!
There are so many gorgeous frames available, and in every shape and size you could imagine.
These are very addictive, but Christmas is coming!
The perfect gift for friends and family, or a hostess gift!
  Now, if you have gotten through the whole post to this point....I'm going to have a little giveaway! This giveaway is now closed! Thank you!
How about an open wide zippered pouch! I used the grey bottom to offset the
seizure inducing colours on the top!

I'll stuff it with 4 fat quarters of Marguerite by Riley Blake.

Tracy Johnson said...

I loved the yellow interior of the last purse, but kinda partial to purple. I also am direction-ally challenged. Even when I try to get things right side up, I spend lots of time ripping it out to re-arange.

Beth said...

Okay I confess.....I ordered 5 frames! After seeing all these beautiful coin purses I may need more! Thank you for some great inspiration. And thank you for the chance to win a fabulous prize!

Beth said...

Celtic Thistle said...

Janarama said...

Love your versions of the coin purse.

I bought the pattern and one frame (to start). I'm in the process of trying to decide which of my beautiful cotton fabrics I will use. I think making the fabric choice is going to be the hardest part of this project.

Debbie said...

Love your purses and I especially like the Canadian coin purse. I think the fabric is just perfect, When I'm shaking the purse to check for fabric money the words are upright.;)

Linda said...

I love the yellow lining on your last little purse. All your purses are so cute!!
I was in this blog hop, so I made several of these little purses. They ARE addictive!

Emily C said...

I will definatly try my hand at one of these. That fabric fussy cut will make perfect purses.

Cindy said...

Lots of cuteness going on! Was the last one stitched in or glued in? I wondered since you mentioned you couldn't see the stitching. Seems like gluing would be easy....says the gal who has never made one of any kind! :)
Oh and congrats on your nomination!

CeLynn said...

They are all pretty,but the fabric is just way too cute

Guin said...

I've made some, and I'm going to make more as soon as I get more frames. They are lots of fun to make.

Joanne said...

I love your coin purses and the handles are great! Until this blog hop, I'd never made a handled purse like this of any kind and didn't even know about the glue on handles. :-) Well, I can't say that any more since I'm finishing up coin purse #5! Thanks for sharing your creations with us today.

Sewgirl said...

I have been so inspired with the coin purses in this blog hop. Yes, of course I have to try them, and everyone keeps saying how relatively easy they are and what great Christmas gifts they'll make..!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Cute, cute, cute! And I love your sense of humor! lol I had never made either a glue in or a sew in purse before joining up with this blog hop. And I find that they are soooo much fun! Do you like to do the glue in or the sew on type better? I made sure to go back through where I came out with the needle when i was sewing through the lining...so that my stitches didnt show.

Thank you for a chance for your wonderful giveaway!
Blessings & Aloha!
I am at our daughter, son in law, and grandbaby's home visiting, but wanted to stop by and check out the amazing coin purses!

Your purses all turned out great. Love that you made your own fabric for the Canadian money one and what could be more appropriate for a coin purse.

I'm in the blog hop to, so made purses for it but I was hooked on these purses even before the blog hop.

Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win!

Fantastic coin purses, I really like the Canadian currency (nice touch) :)
As for trying this craze out, you'd better believe I am (my first frame order has yet to arrive and it's been 6 weeks) just as soon as my second order, from Canada, arrives!

sew.darn.quilt said...

I've been following in your snowy footprints:)

ps: I've got more snow up in Marcelin!

I'd like to try to make a coin purse but I honestly can't get to any new projects until June of next year. I always plan too many and the ones for early next year actually have deadlines.

Your little coin purses are so cute. Your copper colored frame is wonderful. I plan on making a few more for Christmas gifts.

Tracy Johnson said...

I loved the yellow interior of the last purse, but kinda partial to purple. I also am direction-ally challenged. Even when I try to get things right side up, I spend lots of time ripping it out to re-arange.

Beth said...

Okay I confess.....I ordered 5 frames! After seeing all these beautiful coin purses I may need more! Thank you for some great inspiration. And thank you for the chance to win a fabulous prize!

Janarama said...

Love your versions of the coin purse.

I bought the pattern and one frame (to start). I'm in the process of trying to decide which of my beautiful cotton fabrics I will use. I think making the fabric choice is going to be the hardest part of this project.

Debbie said...

Love your purses and I especially like the Canadian coin purse. I think the fabric is just perfect, When I'm shaking the purse to check for fabric money the words are upright.;)

Linda said...

I love the yellow lining on your last little purse. All your purses are so cute!!
I was in this blog hop, so I made several of these little purses. They ARE addictive!

Thanks for the giveaway.

Emily C said...

I will definatly try my hand at one of these. That fabric fussy cut will make perfect purses.

Cindy said...

Lots of cuteness going on! Was the last one stitched in or glued in? I wondered since you mentioned you couldn't see the stitching. Seems like gluing would be easy....says the gal who has never made one of any kind! :)
Oh and congrats on your nomination!

CeLynn said...

They are all pretty,but the fabric is just way too cute

Guin said...

I've made some, and I'm going to make more as soon as I get more frames. They are lots of fun to make.

Rebeckah Austin said...

Very nice! I had my day yesterday! So, yes I have dabbled in frames a little :)

Joanne said...

I love your coin purses and the handles are great! Until this blog hop, I'd never made a handled purse like this of any kind and didn't even know about the glue on handles. :-) Well, I can't say that any more since I'm finishing up coin purse #5! Thanks for sharing your creations with us today.

I am loving these coin purses and wishing I had joined this blog hop! You did a great job!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Cute, cute, cute! And I love your sense of humor! lol I had never made either a glue in or a sew in purse before joining up with this blog hop. And I find that they are soooo much fun! Do you like to do the glue in or the sew on type better? I made sure to go back through where I came out with the needle when i was sewing through the lining...so that my stitches didnt show.

Thank you for a chance for your wonderful giveaway!
Blessings & Aloha!
I am at our daughter, son in law, and grandbaby's home visiting, but wanted to stop by and check out the amazing coin purses!
