Italian Coin Purse

From sewing

I'm sure these flex coin purses aren't Italian, but the only people I know that carry these around are two of my Italian friends that use them to carry change. Hence, Italian Coin Purse.

I've wanted to try making one since I saw this tutorial on the fabulous U-handblog.

And then whilst rummaging in the hardware section at the workroom, I found the flexi frames required to make the purses!

I used leftover fabric from my friend Julie's Birdie Sling Bag thinking that maybe she would like a matching Italian Coin Purse. And then I thought: she's a teacher! Maybe I'll make it bigger and she can use it as a pencil case!

1) I didn't make it big enough to fit a pencil.
2) Does a gym teacher even need a pencil case?
3) If I make one for Julie, do I have to make one for my other friend, Kelly, who also has a birdie sling and also works at the same school as Julie?!

1) Final product is so cute! (despite useless size.)
2) ...

At the moment, this super cute cupcake/elephant Italian Short Pencil Case is sitting in my drawer being squeezed and admired every so often but without a permanent home: an orphan ready to meet Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert.
