I have spent some time going through my mountain of scraps and making a few pieced items. Before Valentines day I made a bunch of these heart coin purses. And below a few houses with raw edge applique and an assortment of embellishments.
For the houses, I sort of played around with the size and made the zipper at the top of the roof. A variety of windows, doors and fun shapes go into each one. I used rick rack, buttons, ribbon flowers and some random quilting to highlight each house.
I really like these and will continue to make house zip purses in vary shapes and sizes. I have a few variations and shapes I will be adding through 2014.
