Small & Extra Large Coin Purse

Extra Large "coin purse". Not exactly for coins, but I used Madame Samm's coin purse pattern from the UR Priceless blog hop (you can find it here on Craftsy) and I enlarged the pattern it to fit the metal frame purse closure I had. The fabric I had in my collection for years and years and there was just enough of this fabric for the front and back. I used a blue fabric I hand dyed last year for the sides and it was the perfect match. I also quilted the exterior.
I chose a small gray print for the lining.
You can see both fabrics in this side view.
I made this coin purse, which is the size Madame Samm designed, in a batik fabric with another hand dyed fabric for the lining. 
Batik fabric coin purse quilted with variegated thread. I made this to give to a friend.
