I recently cross stitched this coin purse for my partner queenofmarigold in the Video Game Round 2 swap.



My partner said she liked useful items, and so when I saw the undecorated black coin purse for $5 at Michaels, I knew it would make a great canvas for something.  When she listed rupees (the jewel-like currency from the Legend of Zelda games) as one of her favorite video game items, I knew it would go perfectly.  On the other side, I added a Yoshi coin (Yoshi being one of her favorite characters) and two regular gold coins from the Mario games.



For the rupees and the regular coins, I simply let the black of the coin purse show through; I liked the slightly 3D effect it gave.  For the Yoshi coin, however, I had to go back and stitch the black parts with black thread to clean it up.  That was probably the worst part, as stitching black thread on black canvas (just like white on white) is no fun.  All in all, it probably took me about 6 hours or so.



Thanks for looking!
