So there were lots of sniggers in the workshop when I started on a little project I've been looking forward to since I bought the kit from Foltvilag at the NEC. I love all the Foltvilag things - they're a Hungarian company and watching Margit working with all her different templates is always fascinating. There were sniggers because it was generally thought that, yet again, my ambition was greater than my skill.
Anyway, I got my head down, and by the end of the day I'd made these:
See how tiny they are? That's a real 50p piece next to them!
Annoyingly Foltvilag don't supply patterns with their kits - you have to email them to get the instructions. I emailed at least twice, and kept checking to see if they'd sent them, but they didn't come. And I couldn't wait.
So I went ahead and made the purse anyway, hoping I'd got it right.
When the instructions came through today, I realised I hadn't done it quite right, but it's okay and I'm pretty pleased with my little change purse!
I'm going to make more - the right way next time!
