And even more sewing. Zip wallet/coin purse.

I saw a cute idea in "Bend the Rules Sewing" by Amy Karol for a small coin purse. I made it longer and skinnier (I only had larger zippers and wasn't patient enough to wait), used felt for the inside lining to make it heavier, and added an inside pocket for small stuff. I made two thus far - one for me and one for my mom...but they are quick and easy and I have lots of remnants and vintage zippers left in my stash, so I think more are coming!

The book has many cute patterns and ideas - I want to make the felt elf hat for our dress up basket!!

I love the fabrics that you used.

Do you read Soule Mama? She posted photos of the elf hat that she did the other day (from the same book). SO cute.

Really? How funny. I used to read her blog-but haven't in many months. I'll have to see how it looks! ;) Thanks!

I just looked at her blog - the hat came out cute! My boys won't go for pink though. ;)

I have been on hold for that book through the library system for MONTHS and MONTHS and it FINALLY came in just a few days ago, so it got me in the sewing mood this week (as you can see).
