Random Notions - Somebody Stop Me!


I love these little change purses from SewMeHappy!  I spent about 2 hours making a few today!  First, because my mother can never find her debit card in her purse, I found one of the brightest batiks I have to make her one:


I used the same fabric for the inside of this one.  I just hope that Mom will put her card into here after she uses it, rather than just dropping it into one of the bazillion zippered sections of her purse!

Then I made one for a friend of Mom’s who like birds- I have had a fat quarter of this Laurel Burch design for years and never knew what to do with it.  I had to fussy cut the outside pieces to take advantage of the gorgeous print so it came out a bit bigger:

For the inside of this one, I had to find something extremely bright:



I love it and hope Mom’s friend will, too!

I made a couple more, but I can’t reveal them yet – they are gifts and I am afraid one of the recipients will see them, but tomorrow night I can show them – they came out really cute too!  I can’t wait to make a couple for me!
