Quick Gift Idea



 I made these little coin purses for my sister's stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts!  They measure approximately 7" x 3" and lined.  This is a good fabric scraps buster, also!

I used a shape from a stencil; cut two of coordinating fabrics each; sewed each piece, then inserted the lining  fabric into the main purse; pressed selvedge edges down and sewed all around the edges. I couldn't decide on a closure (velcro, button, snap, etc.).  No zippers...it will not work for this purse!  Anyhow, I need to have these in the mail today!

HAPPY GIFT SEWING!
