Coin Purse

Whenever I have spare time (which is mostly while I am waiting for my kiddos in the car) I make fabric folded flowers, yo-yo's and such from scraps. I have a small box I keep in my car with such small projects.

Those embellishments come in handy when I want to decorate a random project. I will show you an example.

I found this coin purse at a thrift store several months ago for a dollar. It was mint condition, and I love Gamaguchi coin purse (Gama-guchi is a Japanese word for mouth of frog) I couldn't pass it up.

While I couldn't really work on a big project, I gave a little makeover to this little missy.


Before...



After...




I love it! Don’t you?

  10. Hi,

    I love your blog. You add the most adorable embellishments and have really inspired me to look differently at plain items/clothes that bored me. Also, your personal story about your medical struggles and your faith have been a real help to me in my own life with my own struggles.

    So, I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award I received last week. Congrats!

  18. I keep looking at all your beautiful floral pieces and wanting to try, but I'm afraid I'm too chicken. Is such a thing reasonable for a novice to try?
