I had a friend that was getting ready for a yard sale, and had some nice nurse scrub tops for sale. I confiscated a couple and knew when I saw this pink paisley fabric I *HAD* to make a purse with it! The lining was some fabric I have had for a bit, and just couldn't wait to use! I love the smiling skully!!

The basic purse design (other than flap, I added that last minute) and coin and wallet designs were found online, I just put them together with style. LOL

  the outer shell completed, starting to work on the lining. I have made this pattern before, but I had never done it with more than one fabric. So I was thrilled when the ribbon and lower fabric turned out so well.

Lining with zippered pocket.

Liner, and flap sewn on.

Wallet, opened

wallet closed

completed coin purse.

outside of coin purse

Completed purse and wallet. I hadn't decided to make the coin purse when I took this pic. LOL. I have decided as well that I need to make a larger zippered purse for my papers and stuff I tend to shove in there.

I absolutely love this. it took me almost as long to rip ALLLL the seams out of the scrub as it did to actually sew this together. LOL Those things are very sturdily put together, I must say.

Thank you everyone for looking Cheesy

Love the skull fabric too!  Very cute purse and wallet.

Love the fabric!  Also love the fact that you up-cycled it!  Beautiful work.

Thank you so much! I still get giddy when I look at it. LOL And it's not the first purse I have made, but I do really love this one. Tongue
