New Coin Purses

As promised, I have some new coin purses in the shop! These ones feature my first set of characters – Cakeify the happy cupcake, Jammie Dodger and Bread Slice.

Here’s a close up of Jammie Dodger. The print quality is really good on these and works nicely with the watercolour style.

You’ll also find my Cookie Cute gingerbread man. The pencil cases were really popular so I thought I’d add him to the range too.

I’m not sure if any of these will be permanent additions so don’t wait too long to order as I only have five of each, which are split across my shop and Etsy.

If you’re a dab hand at sewing yourself, all my coin purses are available to buy as a cut and sew patterns from Spoonflower for just $5 each.

PS. If you’ve been looking for my Look Around coin purses, my mum is very busy sewing and they’ll all be back in stock soon.
