Keep Calm .... U R Priceless Blog Hop

I made two mini coin purses for the blog hop.

First up - Keep Calm and Quilt On - great words to live by!!



With each of these blog hops, I decide to try a new technique.  For this one, I made a selvage coin purse.  I just started collecting selvages so didn't have too many to choice from but I did manage to include Good Fortune - fitting selvage for a coin purse, isn't it?



Next up - Keep Calm and Call the Doctor.

Doctor who?

Correct!

Any Dr Who fans out there?  When my DD saw this coin purse, she tried to claim it for her very own.



The mini TARDIS fabric comes from Spoonflower.



Keep Calm!!





Thanks for Katherine and Mdmn Samm for another fun blog hop.  Making these little coin purses are quite addictive!

You can find the full schedule here.




Happy Stitching!
