My Day for the Coin Purse Hop!

Welcome!

Today is my day to participate in the
Coin Purse Hop.
A special thank you to 
Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt
and
to our cheerleader
Katherine form Sew Me Something Good.


I signed up for this hop because I wanted to challenge myself. I have never made a coin purse, or any purse for the matter!
I learned a few things on the way.
READ all the directions first!
FOLLOW the directions!
USE the supplies suggested!
Remember PATIENCE is a virtue.

If you do all these things you too will have success. 

So, her is my coin purse.

"Lady Rose"

My Mom's Middle name was Rose and pink roses are by far my favorite flower.




I also have a little tip. When you are attaching the handle, use a color thread that will blend so your stitches will not show.  I love pink so I choose pink, and yes, you can see the stitches. Next time I will use white thread.



Now, just a reminder,
the master schedule is on my side bar
the pattern can be found HERE
and the Supplies can be found HERE.

Have a wonderful time hopping!

  51. lol, Patience is a virtue and one I try REAL hard to hang on to, but somedays it slips away unnoticed and then it all goes upside down. this is when I should have read the directions. ;D These were a little bit of a challenge, I almost gave up about half way through because of the fiddliness of the project I chose. But here we are with finished projects and if our stitches show, and mine do, then cie'la vive (such is life). Lady Rose is perfect, as are you, with all you patience intact. :)

  64. Jane, Lady Rose is darling...I felt the same, I had to practice patience big time, especially after breaking the thread twice and then the needle on the first purse. Did I really want to make another?? The second one went together a lot quicker and now I am anxious to make a few more. Thanks for sharing in the blog hop.
