My OSU Coin Purse

My Oregon State University Pink Coin Purse

For some reason, projects I decide to make for myself are frequently set aside to work on more pressing projects.  So, I am happy to announce I finally completed the little coin purse I began a few months ago.  If it looks a bit familiar, it could be that you recognize the TAST stitches I used along several of the seams. Or, you may have seen pictures on my list of goals on a WIP Wednesday post.

As silly as it may seem, I am simply thrilled to have this in my purse.  I used it today, and it was SO much better than my previous change purse.  (My previous change purse had a zipper and if there were coins in it, the cramped space made it a bear to close without bills catching in the zipper.) 

The curves are still a bit tricky, but sewing the frames in without the stitching showing is getting easier with each sew-in frame. (I am not sure why I am pointing this out... You can click on any image for a larger view.  With this last photo if you look at the upper-right curve, you will see a bit of my frame stitching. It's for me, so I am okay with it!)

Now, I am off to see about finishing another project.

Thank you for stopping by!

Oh yes, its a very pretty coin purse. Most purse's I have, have a black lining and my coin purse is also black making it very difficult to find sometimes. I am always saying that I am going to make a brightly colored coin purse!

Carol, thank you! Your comment gave me food for thought. My purse has pink lining. Luckily it is small, so the coin purse stands out - even though it is also pink. When I finally finish my pink messenger bag, this could be an issue...
