Last month, I decided to take the meet the makers challenge given by Joanne Hawker on Instagram. I honestly did not think I would be able to stick through the month-long challenge. As I posted every day, it gave me a chance to talk about my successes, failures and how I started this handmade life. It has been far from easy but definitely worth every stress filled moment. I thought it would great to share those stories here and bit more about who we are.

I must confess I’m addicted to Liberty of London fabrics. They are some of the most beautiful, softest and delicate fabrics that I have ever worked with. I use their lovely fabrics to make our handmade coin purse wallets. I’ve found they give our coin purse wallets a pretty floral vintage style and are perfect for crafting. 

Our small coin purses are cute, practical and designed to hold your change, credit cards and more. You can easily throw them in your favorite purse or carry them separately to events like brunch with your girlfriends. These money pouches measure 3 ½ inches high by 4 ¾ inches wide and they are fully lined with a back pocket for additional cards. If your goal is to be more organized, these coin purs...
