kero kero keroppi!

Hello!  I don't know what it is about summer but it sure makes me feel lazy.  Well, I guess it's because we don't have such a strict routine of activities and the kiddies haven't started summer school yet and the hubby is on vacation this week too.  We went to the beach one day and drove around to see the sights today and ate out a little and celebrated my little one's birthday too.  And I got a long nap today too so yeah, I've been feeling lazy. 

But my youngest one has a birthday party to go to soon so I thought I'd make another little coin purse to hold a giftcard. 

I have some Keroppi fabric so thought that would be cute for the birthday girl.  This coin purse has a D-hook ring attached to it.

The inside is lined with some matchy green and I used a green zipper too so that it looks more fun.  I sewed everything with a light pink thread for a little bit of contrast.  I don't know if you can tell but the coin purses I've been making have a bit of poof to it too.  I add a layer of batting so it is soft and squishy.

I am trying to work on another sewing project too but we'll see how lazy I'll be feeling the next few days.  Ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your summer!

Cute coin purse! And cute fabric! Great idea with the batting! How funny, I just woke up from dozing off while helping on math homework cuz it was taking so long just to do 30 problems.

This is just adorable...what a sweeet coin purse.
We are being lazy here too...not much crafting, but plenty of napping! LOL!
Off to the zoo tomorrow, that will keep us busy.
