Coin Purses

So i decided to make coin-purses for some of my female-darlings as gifts for xmas :) The idea popped to my mind because i thought that i would need one myself starting from 1.january, because our new course starting from that day is Euro (Goodbye our lovely Kroon) and that means a lot of coins-coins-coins in our purses. I bought these silver purse frames from a local fabric store and they were sew-ons so it was super easy to hand-stitch them to the
baggies i had sewn before. I wanted all of the purses to look a bit different but still come from the same "species" so i stitched some lace(-flowers) to decorate them.
I must say that the purses came out a bit large but on the other hand it makes them a bit goofy and that's usually the way i like things to be ;D
I didn't get the time to make myself one yet but i definitely want to but i will use some other fabric(maybe from one of my purses i haven't used for a couple of years now) because the fabric i used for these nice coin-purses i actually bought to make a new (bigger ;P) handbag for myself.

Noticed the new design of my Ticklish Fingers? It took at least half a day and a lot of help from my soon-to-be-husband (thank You so much honey :* ) to make it happen...but We did it!
I was wandering through different crafting-blogs (once again instead of studying ..argh) and i found this link where there are toooons of different customized fonts AND you may download all of them for free!! Amazing !! So of course i found many-many fonts i absolutely adored :)) Next i saw that they have tutorials for how to use those fonts for customizing blogs. Firstly How to create a signature for your blog and secondly How to customize Blog Titles etc . We had some trouble with the last one but thank god i've got a bit of a computer-nerdy Honey sitting next to me, so he helped A Lot. And I Thank also A Lot because i got some fantastic fonts from there and the tutorials were also very useful.
Make sure you go and check out those Fonts(atleast if you want to customize your blog or need to make some cute invitations etc :))
Good Night!
