Waiting's Over

Well, I finally got the right sized hardware to finish the coin purse that I posted about here.  I had asked you to stay tuned, but ran into a snag when the hardware did not fit.  Well, today it arrived in the mail, and I knew I could get it done this evening.



I know the pattern called for the side gusset, but I am not a fan of it after getting the hardware sewn on, as it looks to gappy (I know.  Gappy isn't a word, but it works here).  Also, if you are actually carrying change or small things, it seems these sides would lose them?

Very cute purse. I made a few at Christmas time - I had the most difficult time hiding my threads under the frame. I used embroidery floss for sewing the frame on - what did you use? Cute pattern, but I agree, you may lose some change on those opened sides.

Cute little purse, I've been wanting to make one. I see what you mean about "Gappy", I suppose you could hand stitch the edges together. Still, it is cute!
