Echino Patchwork Purse

I finished a few things over the weekend. This little clasp was provided free with Mollie Makes magazine. I used the tutorial on U-Handbag and replaced the fabric with this wonderful Echino Patchwork print that Nikki who blogs at Sew Quine very generously supplied when I won her birthday giveaway.
I also needed to finish this mug rug for a friend's birthday - 2 weeks ago! but I have never quilted or bound anything before - so this was my first attempt, no practice or tension check, I just got on with it and this was the result. I was trying to do "an apple for teacher" as she is a deputy head.  I think the front is Spring/Summer and the back Autumn/Winter.



  1. Love the wee purse, lovely to see the echino scraps in action. i'm just about finished my first frame purse fingers crossed the glue holds.

  2. I'm seeing these little purses popping up everywhere! I need to get down to it and make one! Great mugrug, too.
    Thanks for linking up @ This Week!

  3. Lovely mugrug would look great on a desk with a cup of early grey at playtime. Love it !!!!!!! Ta
