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.

I love it! Don’t you?

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!

See this post for the rules: http://amykeeley.wordpress.com/2012/01/09/ive-been-nominated/

I hope you accept.

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?

Sanda said...

Wow, super! Keep on rolling:)!

That’s very impressive! You were able to give a new look to your old coin purse. With a creative mind, there’s nothing you can’t do. I’m going to try and give my coin purse a makeover too. Thanks for the inspiration!
