|Flower Burst in blue|
For the embellishments I simply crocheted another flower like the ones on the bag and attached it to the flap of the coin purse. I added a little loop under the flower to catch the button that I stitched on with thread. Lining the the coin purse was a sinch. Just fold a rectangular piece of fabric in half and use the purse as pattern. Stitch the sides and leave the folded edge alone and the open end... open. Put it in the coin purse and fold over the fabric edges at the top. Stitch along the edges of the fabric to the yarn. There ya go.
I decided to also line the bag with fabric. I don't like the idea of my keys, pens, and whatever else poking through between the stitches, and since I was making this for someone, I really wanted it to have a finished look to it.

I'm so glad I keep scraps!!
Like I said before, this is a gift. I made it for my mom in law, Pat. She'll be over tomorrow and I'll get to give it to her :)
What's the best part about crocheting?
... getting to give the stuff away.
