Ribbon Coin Purse

In the past, I have written about Renaissance Ribbons and the lovely selection of designer ribbons available.  I enjoy reading their blog and looking for new little goodies to make in between large quilting projects.  This week, I came across this adorable little coin purse over at Sew4Home

I decided that I just had to make myself one or two of these and I just happened to have some pretty ribbon just waiting for a cute project.
The instructions for this tiny purse include a full size printable pattern and are very well written.
Click HERE for the complete instructions. The only change that I made was in the application of the ribbon pieces.  The instructions have you pin or glue all of the ribbon pieces to the interfacing before sewing. I did lay them out to be sure that I had enough pieces but I chose to sew them on one at a time so that they wouldn't shift while I stitched.

I used Dritz snaps with the Snap Fastener Kit and it worked great.

I think these would be really great favors or little gifts so I am planning to make up several to have on hand.  here are two that I finished today. Have fun!
