New Items From the Scrap Basket

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.

The piles started like this, sorted by colors, I spent about two days ironing and sorting by size, it looks so ready to go when done, and kind of a relief to do some sorting and tossing. 

I started with the hearts and just sewed like colors then cut into my heart shape.  I dropped these off at Yellow Door before Valentines, but I like them so much I added a few to my etsy shop, and plan to offer them for the year. 

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.
