I'm thinking this little bag could make for some fun holiday gift-giving.
It is the Key Keeper Coin Purse, the seventh project featured in Amy Butler's book, Style Stitches. I chose fabric to coordinate with my Beautiful Balance Checkbook Cover.
It's a cute little bag, about 6" x 6", perfect for coins, cards, my cell phone, and a lip balm.
It is pretty much a mini-version of last month's full-size Teardrop Bag, so the instructions were very easy to follow.
The only change I made was to use Noodlehead's method for inserting the zipper (which she details in her gathered clutch tutorial).
And I completed mine just in time to enter this month's Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge!
Next month's project is the Fringed Hobo Bag-- the one bag in the book that I am considering skipping. I mean, it's big, it's round, and it has crazy trim. On the other hand, I have a sort of bohemian sister-in-law who might really enjoy such a unique bag. So I may still give it a go if I can find the perfect fabric. We'll see!
