COIN PURSE

I went shopping with a friend the other day and she almost had a cow (truly) right there in the store when she saw me drop my change in the bottom of my purse.


 It shamed me....

 Do I not have purse etiquette?  (NADDA)

 Do I not have any since of organization?  (NOPE)

 I guess not...

I think the whole store could have heard a pin drop when she Gasped. so...


ashamed as I was...


 I went home and made myself a coin purse. I just need to poke out the corners and all will be well.

 I think this little coin purse is about 3 1/2" long and 2 1/2 inches wide.

 Does the trick.

 Now I can't wait to drop coins in my little purse so my friend can see....who is embarrassed now.    Oh trust me, she will want one...

LOL I've gotten that look too! ;-) And I have a coin purse, sometimes just don't have time to be so neat. ;-)

I like it!

Funny!! I have been known to gasp like that and then want to fall in a deep, deep hole.

That is so funny, Barb! My mother used to throw all her change into the bottom of her purse and when she needed some, she would just put her hand in and scoop up a handful of coins and look through them for what she needed! One time she let us dump her purse out and count the change...over $75 of change weighing her down! Yikes!

Your little coin purse is just darling...I have no doubt all your friends will want one!

I always drop the change into the bottom of my purse Then every Friday I clean it out And put it in my coin jar. Your little coin purse is so cute i made one for me A while back but it's too much trouble to pull out every time I need to put change in my purse I guess I'm just lazy L O L I really like the one you made

Too cute!

JustCindy said...

What???? I'm not suppose to throw the change into my purse? Who knew? ;) Too cute!

suemac said...

So cute. I just feel the urge now to make myself one,

LynCC said...

lolol You make me laugh :) I think I'll start dropping my change in my purse just because it sounds so fun and carefree, and I'd love to rock someone's world at my devil-may-care attitude. ;D But that coin purse is seriously cute. . .

Teresa Nance said...

Love your change purse. I, too, am bad about dropping my change into the bottom of my purse. I have a question. My email of your blog post had something about a pattern tester, but when I came here, it disappeared. What happened? LOL

Wendy said...

This is so cute! I too drop change into the bottom of my purse!hehehe...

Love the coin purse, might as well get started and making her one now.

Fiesta said...

Greta's story Barb and the coin purse is cute. You are so creative to just whip one up.

Jackie said...

it's still easier to drop your coins in your purse - even though your coin purse is quite lovely!

Cheryl Willis said...

if you are serious about a pattern tester, give me a shout. cw

cute purse, I am 'dropper' btw

Barbara said...

Cute! She will want one for sure!

Sheila said...

You are so funny , great little coin purse , no more digging for coins for you ;-)

Gene Black said...

LOL.. the last person we usually make something for is ourselves. Ha ha.

Ann Marie @ 16 Muddy Feet said...

LOL, that is too funny. When I carried a purse i use to do the same thing. Now I don't carry a purse, so I get rid of the change as fast as I can, so I don't have to waste time rolling it.

KaHolly said...

Shame on you!! I don't have that problem, because I don't carry a handbag. And, I'm one of those exact change nuts, so it never accumulates! Cute little coin purse.

Jean(ie) said...

(raising my hand)
Guilty!

I do the same thing. Then when my purse gets heavy I dump it all in a piggy bank and take it to coinstar when it's full.

Cute coin purse!

SewCalGal said...

Too funny, as I'm right there with you. I love coin purses and will make them for gifts. But do I have one in my purse? No. Coins go right to the bottom. Thanks for inspiring me to make a cute coin purse.
Very cute.

I have a coin purse, but I drop my coins in my purse a lot, too (hey, I'm busy, and they usually want you out of those cashier lines ASAP). :)

Mystica said...

so pretty

The change purse is very sweet Barb! I don't have a problem with tossing your change at the bottom of your purse either though! It is the "small stuff" not to be sweated! Also, it makes for a little surprise when you change purses...bonus money find! Have a great day!

Danielle Hudson said...

haha! I do this all the time. And if that's not bad enough, you should see how I treat my receipts! Great coin purse!

andsewon said...

Cute lil coin purse! Yes she will be simply green with envy!;-)

Mrs Yoastie said...

Your story cheered me up. Cute purse.

sandra said...

So funny but everyone needs a little change purse , I am just in the process of making a coin purse but mine has a clasp but yours looks easier except for zipper. I have never been good on zippers!!
Blessings Sandra

LOL! Barb you crack me up. I think she will want one indeed.

That is cute little change purse. . I'd probably be more likely to use it for make-up or gum, though. I bring any change home (in the small change purse in my wallet) and immediately put it in the piggy bank in my son's room.

Cindy said...

Better losing your change than your marbles.....GIGGLING

Jeanne said...

I usually drop my coins into the inside zipper of my purse. Is that bad, too? Do I need to make a coin purse? Your solution is very cute and will serve you well.

Pokey said...

How funny, Barb! But I hope you enjoy that sweet new purse...and I know she would, too ~
:-}pokey

Marjorie said...

You are just too funny. I'm a drop the $$ in the bottom of the purse too. Just bought a giant bag so the $$ wouldn't fall out. And it's pretty easy to find--just feel around in the bottom, right!?!? My little change purse is not as pretty--but it's harder to dig the change out of it. I may have to make a little change purse like yours.
