Easy Heirloom Coin Purse

This coin purse is reminiscent of the one my grandmother owned when I was a little girl. It was really her everything purse. Coins, dollar bills, nail clippers, lip balm, and even a few bobby pins were always the contents. I used to love opening and closing it, over and over again because of the way the Kiss Clasp sounded when snapping shut.

Later in her elder years she went into a nursing home. She was so upset because other residents would come in her room (mistakenly) and take her Bingo quarters that she kept in her night stand. I knew exactly what she needed- a coin purse to keep in her dress pocket. I went out and found a beautiful, purple Kiss Clasp coin purse for her to keep those quarters safe. She was so tickled with it!

These purses are so handy, and I still love the way the clasp sounds when closing them.

Enter the Easy Heirloom Coin Purse! With simple stitches and the Antique look of the clasp this coin purse may just remind you of your grandmother or even a favorite aunt.

Stars and Latte Headband

A Reversible, Chunky, Comfortable hug for your head!

I fell in love with Caron Latte Cakes when they first hit Michael’s stores and threw a fit when I found out they were seasonal. They’re back now and are here to stay! (some of the colors, at least)

The combination of Caron Latte Cakes, Caron One Pound, and the amazing mix of texture make this headband not only perfect for extreme cold weather, but is also so comfortable you’ll love wearing it!

The pattern is now available for purchase in my Ravelry Store.

Super Chunky Yarn Bowl

This yarn bowl is a quick and easy project using only 2 different crochet stitches and a few supplies. It easily works up in an afternoon. Measuring 5 inches high and 8 ½ inches in diameter it can hold a large yarn ball or even several small balls at a time. The design allows you to remove the yarn for color changes or frogging. I used a couple of my Grandma’s old buttons for fastening the flap, which gave it a nostalgic look and I think of her every time I see it.
