My first post was removed because it contains my name now I post again without. The small purses are done in two hoopings with the 5x7 hoop, but have place for banknotes and coins.They are great scrapbusters too.They measures only 7x10cm, thats about 3x4inches.

This is for babash or anyone else curious about the clasp. I get mine at Hobby Lobby in the USA and they are called Press Locks. I used it on this bag. Mine are slightly different than elemausi's and can be installed by hand like the magnetic snap closures, no hammer. For my next bag like this one, whenever that will be I have no idea, but I want to try this closure in the last photo. It is called Latch Lock and has a nicer, shinier finish than the top one. It also was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Ja, du hast dir das Design gekauft, ich bin noch am überlegen. So schön kommen die raus!. Aber was macht man dann mit so vielen Geldbeuteln??? Ich verkaufe die ja nicht. Gehst du auf Märkte? Oder hast du so einen großen Freundeskreis?

Ich lebe in einer Patchworkfamilie, da gibt es viele Möglichkeiten. Am liebsten nehme ich so etwas für Geldgeschenke, das ist dann etwas persönlicher. Einebleibt bei mir für ausländische Währung im Urlaub. Verkaufen tue ich nicht.

Well done

Wow lovely purses. I especially like the clasp. Did you buy them online?
Also what would you call them? so I can do a search to see who sells them.

Love them......looks great and is functional too!

by pennyhal2 08 Mar 2018

Wow! Those are really fabulous! I love that closure too. So often these types of purses do not have coin pocket, but having one is so covenient. Nice work!

No, the design comes from a german site. The claps are not perfect, I used a hammer and now you can see a dent on it.

Thank you

Very nice job and just the size for my last purse. I tried sewing a small one with slots for credit/debit cards but I was not happy with the result. It was too thick..... Think I'll just keep the leather one I have. If you don't mind me asking, is this a sweet pea design? I didn't think it would be possible in a 5x7 hoop so this is good.

No, it comes from a german site.

elemausi by elemausi 08 Mar 2018

There are two places for banknotes but no special place for cards.
