Japanese Snap coin purse

For my birthday back in July, one of my most stylish friends, Mel, gave me a stash of beautiful Japanese fabrics. Last year, I made a bunch of zippered pouches for the craft sale at my church. Mel had mentioned that this fabric would make super cute change purses.

I decided it would be perfect to take the snap coin purse class at the workroom and learn how to make these change purses properly. I always do a better job when I take a class.  The pattern that Reva designed for the class has a pretty little ruche to give the purse a little body.

I chose the gorgeous teal Japanese fabric and fussy cut it so that there were cherry blossoms showing on both sides. For the lining, I used leftover fabric from my pleated marble dress. Now I just need to do what Karyn did a couple years ago and assembly-line the whole process to make a whole bunch as Christmas gifts! Or hope that there's another craft sale at my church again!
