You may remember that previously I made some beach bags using Michigan State University fabric.  You can read about it here.  My daughter said that she'd also like a little coin purse to go with the beach bag.  So I made one for each bag.  These little purses are easy to make.  You can buy a kit with pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The shop does not have these MSU fabrics, but the kits come with enough other lovely fabric to make two different size purses.  I had purchased the kit a while ago and made the purses, so when my daughter said she wanted the coin purse, I knew just the pattern I would use.
Above you can see the little purse hanging on the strap of the beach bag.  I think she will love these, don't you?

    Your daughter had a great idea to add a little money purse to her beach tote. And you came through wonderfully. Great little coin purses!
