A long time ago I had it in my head that I wanted to make wallets. I purchased some clear plastic stuff for the pockets and when my first attempt at a wallet was a TOTAL disaster I never thought about it again. When I was rifling through my stash looking for inspiration I decided to use some of the plastic on a change purse. I was also inspired by Martha Stewart's latest article about bias tape.
I actually made three of these change purses. Only two turned out.
I used fabric from my huge scrap pile and I used buttons for the zipper pulls. Admittedly it did NOT do much to reduce my stash but I think they are kind of cute.
I've also decided that for the challenge I am going to actually try to make some of the projects from the MILLION books and magazines I've purchased. I plan to start flipping through them (the books an magazines) and if there is nothing that I want to make in them they are going in the growing garage sale pile.
