Hot Pink And Zebra Print Coin Purse

Hello again! I know it's been forever since I've posted anything! I'm back and will be posting more and more I promise :0) It's the beggining of September and I've decided now is the time to start making and purchasing Christmas gifts.  Last year was cutting it close with rent and bills and I wasn't able to buy as much as I wanted to for all my loved ones. So this year I've decided I will start early and try to sell a duplicate of each gift that I make. GENIUS! (In theory anyway.) We shall see if it actually works.

In other news a future customer in Whales will be purchasing her custom wedding dress from me.  It is my first wedding dress and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!  Of course there will be pictures to follow.

My halloween costume is coming along amazingly. I think it will give last year's costume (Oprah Winfrey, complete with Steadman) a run for it's money.

I also just finished a coin purse that will be given as a gift to my sister for her birthday. (I am banking on the fact that she does not check my blog. Sad but true.) Anyway it's most definitely her style and I have decided to start my one for sale, one for gift, policy with this...

It was my first time using a clasp liek this so I am happy with the results considering...
Oh and how can I forget...after the drama of my Singer shatting upon itself, I have a new sewing machine.  My boyfriend bought me my first Brother as a birthday gift this year. I did have to turn a year older but the new sewing machine eased the pain a well as The Red Hot Chile Peppers in Concert.
Oh and here is a picture of the adorable birthday boy in his racecar driver getup.  I don't want to brag but I eyballed the size since he is so tall and nailed it! Perfect fit!

Right before he went to showoff on the playground. :0)
