I’m feeling deeply uninspired this evening so I thought I’d just share some pics of the things I’ve finished over the last couple of days. I haven’t even got the usual sense of achievement of getting stuff done and dusted either. It’s definitely one of those days when you don’t quite feel satisfied with anything much… oh dear this is turning gloomy, best get on!
Thanks for everyone who made suggestions about finishing touches for this purse, when I posted about it a couple of weeks back. Lots of people were in favour of buttons, and I thought a little arrangement of matching, but not matching, buttons might be just the ticket. The intention is for the little square of buttons to echo the little granny squares, and the grid of the seam arrangement. Of course, getting 4 buttons to sit in a square is definitely NOT the easiest thing to do!
I love this cute piggy linen mix fabric – when I was little I used to collect pigs (not real live ones you understand), and would have LOVED a coin purse like this. Also love the red fabric with the tiny polka dots – it is so extremely useful, I seem to have it in everything I make just now.
The shape of this coin purse is entirely dictated by the shape of the 2 scraps of vintage fabric that I used. It’s yummy stuff and part of a gorgeous stash of scraps that I got from Flaming Nora in the first Very Berry scrap swap. I think they look great together. And look – I have £2! So it can’t be that bad can it…!
