asking for trouble

Sunflower Coin Purse


It’s my mum’s birthday today, so here’s some pics of her Mother’s Day present. I designed some cut and sew purse fabric with my sunflowers so that she could make her own purse. She sews up all the purses in my shop, so she got it finished pretty quickly and it turned out really cute!


If you fancy making one yourself, you can buy the fabric from Spoonflower. Basic instructions are available, but you’ll need to know how to insert a zip. Be sure to share any photos if you make one.
