Weekend Finishes {06.17.2013}

This weekend, I had some projects I needed to catch up on, one being a birthday gift for a friend. It took me a while to decide what I would make, I had one hundred and one ideas. I finally decided on making my first coin purse. After a false start (which we won’t talk of), I finally finished my little gift mid-day on Sunday and dropped it off an hour later (with instructions it still needed to dry for 8 hours). A little close I know 😉

Details: Coin Purse
Design: Michelle Wilkie (Squeek Crafts – that’s me)
Silver Frame + Glue: While Baby Naps (Etsy Store, glue can only be sent within the US)
Outside Fabric: Carnaby Street  – 60’s Waves Midnight (Purchased from: Moona Fabrics – Etsy)
Inside Lining: Carnaby Street  – Kings Road Lemon (Purchased from: Moona Fabrics – Etsy)

      That part was really easy, gluing…I used a butter knife to push the fabric in the frame to get it all in the corners and edges. The size of the top of the purse was the harder part…making sure you make it wide enough to be pushed into that frame…you want it wider than the frame – I did about 1/2 -1 inch wider on edge side. The project was all finished in an hour – so its a nice quick project. I will make more.
