Zakka Pleated Coin Purse

After 22 weeks of Zakka-style sewing projects, the end is in sight.  I say that with a bit of regret because this sew-along has been fun, challenging, and a great motivation to keep me sewing!  This week's project, the Pleated Coin Purse, is something I have wanted to try for a long time.  The frame I bought was a different size and shape than the one shown in the book, so I needed to adjust my pattern to make it fit.  I'm pretty pleased for my first attempt -- enough to want to make more, though perhaps using a different pattern.  The fabric I used for the outside was from the Robert Kaufman La Femme line.  It's from the collection I won several months ago.  For the inside I used some scraps of Amy Butler fabric I had on hand.  The color scheme was very similar.  I will be linking my project to I ordered my frame and glue from a great source.  

This coin purse was fairly simple and I was able to finish it much earlier than I anticipated.  That is always a nice bonus!
