Today I am featuring the
Cutest Coin Purses
In the Artist's Own Words:
When I was 5 years old, I started to make crafts and loved it so much. In my whole family, I had only one fan, my grandma. At that time, I could only make some simple origami, such as bird, boat, pants… Every time when I finished, I would show them to my granny. No matter how ugly they were, my granny always said: ”Wow, how beautiful!!! My granddaughter is the smartest girl.” There was no internet, no blog, no crafts forum then, so my granny was my only audience. Her smile was my only encouragement. Little by little, I started to learn sewing, crocheting and knitting. I was so glad I could spend boring and hot summer holiday in crafting. At my 12, I became able to crochet hat and sock. At my 14, I became able to sew pants. Afterwards, I had less and less spare time to make crafts. I had to spend all my time and energy in schools and universities to get degrees. Moreover, life is not always happy and beautiful, sometimes full of stress, sometimes full of tears, sometimes full of pains. Ten years ago, my dear granny left me forever. I cannot stop missing her even now. How sad... Now everything has been settled down. The happiest thing in my life is that I have such a nice husband to support, understand, and love me. So I regain my peaceful life to wakeup my faraway and happiest memory from my deepest heart. I start to make crafts again. Everyday, I enjoy the designing and creating. It seems I returned to my sunny childhood and I saw my granny’s encouraging smile again.
The wool coin purse/coin pouch is made of very soft wool. It was totally handmade with 100% wool.The image on the purse is not flat. That was made with needle felt technique to make the bird in 3D style. It's a very time-consuming. The metal frame was sewn onto the purse with needle and cotton thread.I attached a picture of the purse with my hand to show the proportion, about 4" long and wide as the zippered one.The shape is so comfortable to be held in hand. The round body can be put enough coins.....It shows a little bird standing on a branch.
