Silk Shisha Coin Purse

Sometimes in the course of a sewing project, I end up with a whole bunch of fabric swatches that end up laying around, getting moved from surface to surface. They are too small to really do anything with on their own, but it occurred to me that combined, their power would be unbeatable! In other words, I could sew them into a patchwork fabric and make something out of that.

Here is my first fabric swatch project: a small coin purse!

And here it is with actual coins so you can see the scale:

I lined the inside with red cotton and embellished it a bit with some square shisha embroidery.
