Sewing Up Amazing with Amy

Amy has been working hard again on creating amazing projects with the Doodlebug Ladybug Garden fabrics. She even sprinkled in a darling card using the coordinating paper for her mom for Mother's day.

Mini Zippered Coin Purse Tutorial

There is almost nothing that isn't cuter in miniature- houses, dogs, food- and purses.

This little coin purse is diminutive in size, but large on function.  Perfect for summer outings- put in a couple dollars and your I.D. and you're prepared for any last minute snow cone adventures or lemonade stand encounters.  The bright colors will help you find it even in the most cavernous beach bag.

Measuring a mere 3" high and 5" wide this coin purse might seem too small to do much, but adding a 1" gusset allows for a surprising amount of space inside.  And this little guy is lined with laminated cotton- perfect for keeping out sand and easy clean up if it gets dirty from all those coins.

Are you sold yet?  Feeling like you NEED one?  I'm here to help.  This is a quick sew and uses very little fabric.  If you don't have laminated cotton, don't fret, this can be made using any scraps you have on hand.

(Note: The supply photo below shows yellow chevron and the finished project shows red.)

Be sure to visit Amy's Blog post for the specific material list and step-by-step instructions on how to create this adorable coin purse.

Now if that wasn't enough...Amy created this darling fabric banner using the same Ladybug Garden fabrics. I think this would be the perfect finishing for a summer party, little girl's room or inspirational craft room!

Flower Tutorial:
Amy wanted to show everyone how she created the yummy little scrunched flowers on the banner picture above. So she created an entire tutorial to explain the steps. Be sure to visit her blog to learn how to make this flower.
