UR Priceless Blog Hop

Today is my day to participate in the UR Priceless blog hop! A special thank you to Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt, who created this darling pattern. And thanks also to Katherine form Sew Me Something Good who has been cheering all the participants on. Do visit some of the other stops for today. There is such a fun variety of little frame purses.
A Quilter's Table {you are here!}

I had made one sew-in frame purse before, but this one was smaller, fitting into a 3" frame. The pattern was full of pics and easy to follow. This was a pretty quick project, and I love the little gusset. The first one I made was a basic "follow the pattern" project, and it turned out so sweet in Violet Craft's lovely Madrona Road.

For the second, I decided to omit the fusible batt called for in the pattern, and use a heavier fabric for the outside (Melody Miller's cotton/linen viewfinders for the front and back, osnaburg for the sides). I love the look, and it sits just fine, but it is pretty 'soft,' convincing me that using the batt was definitely the way to go. Though this method is still totally usable.

For the third little purse, I stitched up a piece of patchwork from a mix of Camille Roskelley's Marmalade, Ruby, and Vintage Modern, fused it to a piece of batt, and then machine-quilted the entire piece before cutting out the pattern pieces for front and back. I adore the look, even though it was kind of tricky turning with the extra structure the quilting gave the piece. Still worth it though.

All in all, this was a very fun little project, and I'd love to try more design options such as some embroidery on the front or some pieced selvages. Unlimited possibilities!

Purchase the pattern here. And 3" sew-in frames are available in a variety of shops, but I purchased mine at I Have a Notion. All the purses made during the hop are also being pinned on Pinterest: UR Priceless Coin Purse Blog Hop.

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday.

  55. These are really cute. If I have been sewing all my life (with several years that didn't include much sewing) and heavily quilting in the last 18 months, do you think this is a good first purse pattern? Everyone seems to indicate that the pictures answer most questions. Thanks!
