Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!
My first coin purse is super simple. I decided to make it out of a thin suede. If you walk through your favorite craft store, you will see all kinds of possibilities for materials you can experiment with!
The diecut is folded in half along the short side to accomodate a 4" zipper.
Before I stitched it together, I diecut the largest Beautiful Blooms II #2 die from the suede itself, creating an opening. I then backed the opening with a square of turquoise fabric that had been stabilized with fusible interfacing and glued it in place with fabric glue. I diecut a smaller flower using the same die collection and fabric and stitched it to the middle of the large flower with a Simply Chartreuse button. I then used sharp scissors to cut in between the individual petals for added detail.
I hand cut some leaves from Simply Chartreuse felt and stitched them in place around the flower. After the flower was done, that is when I finished the assembly and stitching of the purse, just like in Erin's video. So incredibly quick and easy. I finished the whole thing from beginning to end while watching Pride & Prejudice, and was done before the movie ended!
Next is a version of the purse folded on the long side, making a great little pencil case. This size uses a 6" zipper. I diecut the main portion of the purse from Simply Chartreuse felt.
This little bird accent was cut using the new Seasonal Stitching: Bird dies. I backed some yellow floral fabric with fusible interfacing and diecut it with the main bird die. I then cut a wing with the separate wing die from Vintage Cream felt. I stitched everything in place onto the front of the pencil case using an orange embroidery floss.
As an added twist, I stitched through the edge of this mini pompom trim as I made my way around the purse. I love the way this dresses up the edge. I'm thinking this would work well with piping too!
This coin purse is made from cotton quilting fabric which has been backed with a nice stiff fusible interfacing.
It uses a 4" zipper along the top and features the new Coin Purse Pocket dies.
The butterfly on the front was created with the new Seasonal Stitching: Butterfly dies and Ocean Tides felt. I stitched it onto the purse front using embroidery floss.
The pocket was diecut from Ocean Tides felt too and stitched with the same embroidery floss. I made my own fabric covered button to accent the pocket and cover up the snap closure.
I found the perfect tassle to accent the zipper in the drapery section of the fabric store. Half the fun of these projects can be decorating the zipper!
I have one final project to share with you and it is this oil cloth make-up bag I made for Hannah. I wanted this to be a bit larger, so I used two full-size diecuts instead of folding.
The front of the makeup bag is accented with her monogram.
And it even has a decorative zipper pull that I accented with a strip of coordinating fabric.
The inside of it is lined with a bright colorful floral.
I thought I would show you a little step by step on this one in case you wanted to add a lining to one of your purse creations. I started with the floral fabric, cut a little larger than the Coin Purse die. I backed them with Wonder Under fusible web.
I then added the oilcloth to the back of the fabric by using a low heat setting on my iron. Be sure to iron the fabric side when fusing these together. An iron placed directly on the oil cloth can cause melting.
The I die-cut two pieces using the main Coin Purse die.
Next was adding the slot for the zipper. I placed the zipper slot die towards the top of the back piece. This size purse will need a 6" zipper.
I used the pre-cut holes to pin the zipper in place and then stitched it. So, SO, so easy with the pre-cut holes. Seriously, the easiest zippers I have ever set!
For the front accent, I backed the fabric with fusible interfacing and die cut it with the Mat Stack 7 die. I also diecut Hannah's monogram from pink oil cloth using the Bookprint Upper Alphabet die. I glued the "H" to the Mat Stack and then glued the entire piece onto the front portion of the purse.
After that, I was all ready for the exterior edge stitching. With the pre-cut holes, it's like you are back in Kindergarten using those lacing cards! Easy enough that kids can even do it!

Cornelia Wenokor says
Not sure, if you want to hear this, but you ask for our opinion – I would not need a die to make a coin purse if I wanted to. I’m primarily a card maker, so this does not appeal to me – too removed…..but I sure would happily spent $75 on stamping supplies….

Sandy Kay says
This is one of those products that will pay for itself over and over! I’m sure I’ll be on the lookout for some unique materials to make these darling purses with! I have some old embroidered table runners and quilts that are damaged and can’t be used as intended. Now I know why I saved them!
Marcie Rhys says
WOW WEE! Just saw both today’s and yesterday’s posts. I don’t think I’ve ever been that excited with my clothes on before. Oh, you have just ruined my budget for crafty stuff for a long time.
Yesterday’s post using Embellished Elegance, blows my mind. Just when I thought I had all the flower stamps and dies I’d ever need, this comes along. (By the way, I have never sold one set from you. They are treasured tools in my life, and I keep them forever, and don’t buy something new to replace them.)
Every little aspect of a set has so much know-how in it. All the parts can be used for the 4″X5.5″ cards, as well as larger projects. Laurie put a fine point on that with her ‘Happy Birthday’ card. (She is a natural fit with you folks.)
If Erin designed that purse all by herself, she should win a Nobel prize (or share it with you if it were a group effort). Talk about clever and versatile! I think there are as many ways to use these dies, as there are folks on the DT. If these dies don’t make the felt on your shelves fly out the door, nothing will. You are the only company out there making these kinds of highly innovative dies, and even better, we can afford them!
Well, tomorrow evening I’ll cross my fingers, and wait up to make an order. No waiting till next month, this time!
No a big sewer, but these are really adorable. What a brilliant idea and such cute projects by the DT.
Dasa B says
So beautiful. I would love to create something like this.
Completely unexpected and totally adorable! What a great concept!
No wonder Erin has been so excited all week. These are adorable. I’m still making my way through the DT blogs but the ideas are amazing. I have tons of zippers just waiting. That was a real amazing part, the way she solved the zipper installation.
Kelly Flaherty says
These bags are terrific, and each is beautiful. What a great idea! My husband is going to pass out when he gets the credit card bill next month…!!!
What an incredibly cute idea. It is the perfect craft for my daughter who is always looking for nice things to make her friends. I love all the innovative and fun items every month. Thanks.
James Beverly says
Okay, I’m the husband and I sure hope she wins. Maybe I’ll live through the credit card bill shock. Thanks.
Rachael Burdick says
This coin purse would be so perfect as a gift for a little girl. Just adorable!
Alyssa S says

I am amazed at all the perfect details Erin was able to incorporate into these dies. I sew, a lot, and zippers can be tricky if not done properly. Erin, you get 5 gold stars in my book for making zippers easy, quick and adorable!!

I wasn’t sure about these new dies at first, but the DT sold me on them. The assembly looks easy and fun. I also enjoyed reading that Erin loves sewing but hates sewing machines, which is why she created these dies. Erin is so clever and I hope to see more sewing projects in the future.

I absolutely love the look of hand-stitching on projects – it just takes things up a notch, an extra-special touch for gift-giving…so to me, the Seasonal Stitches are wonderful!
