Purses a-plenty...

My coin purses are always a side-dish to the main course of what I'm sewing.

I'm a stickler for preventing waste - 

mini off-cuts can end up as detail on bags and wristlets, mini-mini off-cuts are used to create shelleyberelli tags 

- and the 'left-overs' that are a little larger become coin purses.

That's not to say that they are an after-thought.

After all, they are all made from loved fabrics that I've had stashed away for ever, not daring to cut....

or have been carefully selected on a recent shopping trip for their colours, patterns, or textures.

Each one is a unique creation..

that I'm always a little sad to farewell, 

but I always know it's going to a good home.

And just every once in a while I keep one for myself x
