Crazy Quilted Blue Heart Coin Purse


If you follow me on Instagram, the crazy quilted centerpiece of this zipper pouch may look familiar. It is now the front of a 5.5" by 5.5" zipper pouch coin purse.


Here is a slightly closer view. The heart was machine pieced and hand embellished. I used Therm-O-Web HeatnBond Lite to fuse the heart to black cotton fabric and then hand stitched the edges in place. After that, I added the green stem stitches around the heart and the pink flowers on the upper section of the heart.


Above is a close-up. You may click on any image for a larger view.


The back and lining of the pouch are 100% black cotton fabric.


The zipper opening is 4.25-inches long and opens up to 3.25" wide in the center.

The interior seams are raw edges finished with zigzag stitches.


This coin purse is now listed in my Hand Stitched Treasure Etsy Shop and will ship First Class for free within the United States. You may find it listed here.

I would love to hear what project(s) you are currently working on. Feel free to leave a comment letting me know!

Thank you for stopping by.
Renee

Such beautiful stitching, complete with a butterfly! I like the Stem stitched edge - it makes a fine edge.

This one is really pretty Renee - I love the pretty row of stitching with the pearl additions.

That is so cool! And it kind of works on a lot of themes since it's wintry, and a heart.

So great, this little coin purse. The colours of the heart really stand out on the black fabric.
