U R Priceless


The new bloghop has begun and this time the first day of the hop is my day to present my cute coin purses. But first of all a big Swedish hug to Madame Samm and Katherine for hosting this priceless blog hop.
I must say that I have had some problems to get the purse frames in time to make my purses. I have first contacted a shop on Etsy from Portugal in September where I found some very cute frames. But the frames  were not even shipped after a month  and I didn´t get any contact with the shop owner in spite of several reminders. Then I had to buy from an other internet shop, as I couldn´t find any shop here in Sweden which had   purse frames.  
Finally I ordered frames from ebay, China and Etsy Great Britain, but in a slight different form that could fit the pattern designed by Madame Samm.
Two days ago the shop owner from Portugal contacted me and informed me that she had been on vacations and was very sorry. She returned my money and that´s the story with the first problems with my purses.
My big problem then was the decision of fabric. I can´t understand why this is always a very big problems as I have yards of fabric in my stash. But I think this is a problem that I share with thousands of quilters.
And then I had to reconstruct the pattern to fit my purse frames. I love freeze paper, I use it when I make templates and it is then so easy to iron it on the fabric. I reconstructed the templates on the freeze paper and voila there were my templates to fit my purse frames.
My first coin purse were made from fabric designed Loralie, I love her cute ladies

The second cute lady on the other side

My second choice of fabric was design from Laurel Birch. And as birds are my favorite pets and animals the motives were natural, some parrots of course.

I have now presented you for my purses and now it is time for you to see and admire all the other purses of today

    SvaraRadera
  102. Love the sassy ladies on the first purse. So cute! Thanks for sharing.

  103. Beautiful fussy cutting the Laurel Burch pieces. I am one of her biggest fans. A loss to the art world when she passed, I am so glad to see her work in lots of places. My locally-owned pharmacy stocks her cards at a (relatively) reasonable price. And... I don't mind giving him my hard-earned dollars for her work.

    Your coin purses look great. Your tenacity is to be lauded.

    SvaraRadera
  104. Fantastic!! Love the fabrics:)

    SvaraRadera
  105. I Love the change purse

    SvaraRadera
  107. I love how you fussy cut your fronts/backs -- these are very darling offerings. Great job!!! :)
