ABC's of UR Priceless....and giveaway!


Since I was the last on this blog hop, I am hoping you went to visit all my dear quilting friends
that I shared by day with .... Here they are!  Welcome if this is your first time here!

This post should come with a warning...lots of pics...lol

                                                       Janice M ( she is there now) 

Last day, day 7  - Nov. 13





I know, I know....ABC's who would even think
of doing such a thing...? 

I am blaming it on CAROL, she began spreading a rumour
I had made hundreds of coin purses.... such silly Rubbish... lol

The truth of the matter  is I ONLY made about 26...maybe a couple
more- that I did not include here, because they were my samples
and our button for this blog hop....

If I wasn't sew busy planning our very SPECIAL DECEMBER
surprise ( the whole month in fact) and working on assignments
and papers for school, I probably would have gotten hundreds done...

Sew I will squash that rumour right now....
Sorry to disappoint you all....lol

Ok, let's get to the Alphabet...my first one here went
to a young lady is Costa Rica, A for Alexandra....one of my fav's for sure.
She made me a delightful sewing kit for my needles. 
A miniature "apple" paper piecing just for her! 



B for Beonce...and not Beyonce...Beonce...
I received this fabric from Kiki, and I was tickled pink
to finally find something that would suit a coin purse
perfectly...very 50's don't you think? 


C for Charlie....Jane  sent me some Charlie Brown
Fabric....I love this one...I love fall! Always a sweet treat
to share one's stash... ( with me lol) 


D for Danielle... How I love this one...I have 
quite a bit of this fabric, always thought it sew dainty,
feminine, complete with ruffles and bows! 

 ( handles from Quilt Taffy) 


E for Emily, ohhh she is such the Matriarch
of "the fam", hard not to be drawn into this fabric line,
just priceless! 


F for Felicity, surely you don't need to be concerned with her,
even though she is holding a hammer...possibly letting
everyone  know, please don't touch this coin purse lol...


G for Gabby, my best friend at boarding school was named Gabriella,
she is from Switzerland, she loves sour apples, the greener
the better. We are still friends after all these years, I sent
her this a couple weeks ago, she wrote back
" I almost bit into it" ....Yes that is Gabby, always a lover
of sweet things lol.... I just pucker at the thought!
( and I love sour, but green apples....I will leave
those to her) 




 H for Hailey, made this with linen gussets , back
and lining. She just cannot understand why her man
thinks she needs a coin purse?
MEN! lol



 I for ISHA,  love the name and the image...
Sometimes I wish ladies dressed like this more...




J for Jane, she loves seeing her name out there I am told ( wink)
I wonder how she will feel to have this lovely in the pink
coin purse named after her ...
( oh and she loves PINK) 


K for Katie, Katie always brings sunshine in my life, the funniest
thing is I have 8 GF whose name is Katie. 4 of them 
want this one. lol 

( andover fabrics the red thread, our giveaways) 


L for Loretta, one of the NUNS at school was named Sister
Loretta Laplante, she wore a frown much like this lady...
I don't think she would be terrible amused! 
Although I love "the fam"and I did fear Sister Loretta! lol




M for Melanie Daniels, you know THE BIRDS star, Tippi Hedren.
Her character's name was Melanie Daniels. 
This fabric and stitched crow was from Kris, even though
it was to be made into a pillow, I thought this one would
certainly be mine, and I would proudly keep this one
as a reminder of a shared passion for crows!
( not really but I just love The Birds, and I just ordered
the fabric to make a similar quilt like Kris made for her son)



N for Nancy Drew, I love Nancy Drew almost as much as The Birds,
sew when I heard MODA was coming out with Nancy Drew
fabric, I just knew we had to have a blog hop...
we will be registering interested Nancy Drew fans 
this week...for January Blog hop... The fabric is divine!



O for Octavia...when I think of Octavia Spencer she played Minny
in the movie blockbuster
 THE HELP, my movie of choice these past couple years.
 I have the movie and ohhhh 
may have watched it a few times....I think Octavia would
love this coin purse almost as much as she loved
 baking chocolate pie! 

( andover fabrics the red thread, our giveaways) 



P for Penelope, I never get tired of orange or dots
or outlines of lovely fabric pieces, combined we have
Penelope. Isn't she a darling ? 



Q for Quinn, I always love names that suits
both sexes. I have gf named Quinn, and we go out
and make reservations for high tea, Quinn and Samm, I think
they are surprised to see 2 ladies walk in! lol 
This one is certainly for HER! 



R for RaeAnn, we all know a lady  by this name and she
is an avid quilter, she no doubt measures up to this one to a T. 
This fabric came by a lady whose name is a fruit. ( wink) 


S for Sabrina, I was going to call her Samantha, but realllllly
I don't think she resembles me at all. And I really don't know
any Sabrina's either. This one was won by Soma...
I could have called it Soma...I just did not want
her to think I thought she was this scary ...lol
Although she did just organize a paper piecing Halloween theme!
mmmmmmmm 




T for Timothy, another member of "the fam" he is rather fond of pink,
ohhh he told me...so this one is heading off to HIM...wink..



U for Ulric, I loved this name! Sounds as strong as this
image..."the fam's" home. Love the orange in this fabric...
kinda like pumpkin...and I LOVE PUMPKIN! 



V for Victoria. I had a nursing teacher named Victoria, we all 
called her Vickie, I always liked Victoria better. We still are in 
contact after ahhhh *# years lol  I sent this to her last week!
She loved it ! 



W for Wicked Wendy, our dear friend who hosted and cheered
for the Wicked Blog hop. I made this especially for her...
Thought it would be a reminder of a fine job she did
and I drew the wicked house....the other side
has her name with crows in the air....


X for Xandra.....Ok, I know of no one with this name...
but I also don't know any babies who look like this either...
( another member of "the fam" )





Y for Yvette, being french I had many classmates who had
french names. Yvette, was my study friend. We both spent
more time in the library then we did in the pews....
I had embroidered this with variegated Presencia threads....
and the gussets are blue roses... She would just love this..
She always had blue ribbons on her ponytail! 


Z for Zoe, now I do have a friend name Zoe, and she and I have
taken many baking classes together with a famous
baker in Toronto. Dufflet, before she opened a few bakeshops,
she used to teach classes in a small store.... We certainly
learned from a pro, I made 2 of these...one for Zoe
and another wellllll, can't say at the moment..
But she loves to bake and cook and ......too! 




I thought you would like to the linings...
I took as much care in selecting these as I did the fabrics
for the coin purses... All of these were made
from Andover Fabrics, the RED Thread, giveaway BUNDLES. 




I called these the GIRLS! 
( made from dots and linens) 


This collection "the fam" 



This collection I called 
THEME! 



 More FAM relatives! 



I called these EARTH collection! 



I called these OOAK! 


 I called these PRICELESS!



I have a few more I have already cut out and 
are ready to be sewed...Many of my "FAM" and "Friends will
be getting these for Christmas...
I think they make a perfect OOAK gift...the possibilities
are endless....



ohhhh this is just an extra I made for a special cheerleader....!

charlotte said...

I love all of them...but Charlie (my nickname for years) Melanie and Penelope are my favorites. You are amazing Samm. I can't believe you made all these...well, yes I can.

Lesley said...

Oh my...what a perfect idea, to use the alphabet and create such adorable little purses! Your creativity has no end. In addition to just being so darn cute, they are all so well made! Yay you...you ended the hop with a resounding ahhhhhhhh! My favs? Penelope spoke to me, and Isha and Octavia just make me smile! Well done and thanks to you, Katherine, and the generous sponsors!

gpc said...

Oh my gosh, I love them all -- you are so creative! If I had to pick favorites I'd choose Jane and Melanie, but all of your gals are lovely. I made and posted a couple more purses in honor of the hop, but posted today's from my phone so I couldn't link. :( This has been so much fun for me. My purses are not as cute as yours, but I get better with every one I make! Thank you so much.

Michele said...

As always I am floored by all that you created. They are all fabulous!

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

Hard choices for sure!!
Someone is holding a gun to my head so I choose:
Melanie, Charlie and Felicity
I'm safe now.

these are all so special. Its a hard choice.

Pauline said...

Dear, dear Madame Samm, you really went over the top this time, a great big happy cheer for you Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaa! I love your idea of the alphabet purses, they all look cute! Alexandra, Isha and Octavia are the once I like best.
Thank you for organizing this U R Priceless bloghop with our dear cheerleader Katherine, you both made a super event of it. A big hug for your both!

Threads and thoughts said...

What lovely designs, difficult to choose from.
But finially I decided for: Charlie, Raeann and Wendy.
Definitly will purchase the chart!

Denise :) said...

Gracious, only three? That's frightfully limiting, don't you think?? LOL! I guess I'd go with Yvette, Jane and my mostest favorite,Danielle (which could just as easily been Denise *grin*)! You did a fabulous job with these!! :)

Mommarock said...

My favorites are Octavia, Alexandra, and Beonce. So hard to limit my choices on these. They are FAB!!

Jeanie said...

How fitting that this was the last link that I went to in the hop. What a finale!! I love your alphabet theme and all of the little purses. Pick 3..... (Sophie's Choice).... I chose Alexandra, Emily, and Penelope, but ALL are wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration, the pattern, and all of the hard work behind the scenes!

Vivian said...

All the Ghastly ones, but then Melanie caught my eye since I loved the quilt made from that crow fabric at the last blog hop. So I must say Melanie, Sabrina and Xandra. But all are so so cute. Vivian

JCnNC said...

Octavia, Jane, Nancy, Katie - I would really like a surprise that you just make for me. Is that too direct? Love, love all of these tiny bundles of wonderful - me thinks a lot of people with addictive personalities were represented in this hop. Hee, hee - I am one of them and would have been represented (and had a pattern) if I could have. It is so hard to sit on the sidelines, when there is so much fun and creativity going on all around me. Everyone did a fabulous job. Fingers are crossed that "Vanna" will pick me!!! Group hugs go to Katherine for keeping everyone on track and I think you already know how much I appreciate you. Judy C sends hugs

Josie McRazie said...

Well I LOVE all things Ghastlie! So you know my loves are Victoria and Sabrina! I have to giggle when I hear Ulric! It reminds me of the movie A Knights Tale! I love that movie! And I also love Penelope! Which of course I say completely incorrectly (because of another movie!) I say pee-nu-lope! It makes me giggle too! I'm so crazy!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Samm as usual you've outdone yourself but oh my goodness I wish I looked like Isha! :) Of course Felicity is much more accurate if we're talking about looking like me! But if I were choosing a favorite it would likely be Raeann - love that fabric! blessings, marlene

Renea said...

I would have to pick Emily and Hailey as my favorites. You are a busy girl. I need to learn your time management. This was a fun blog hop to follow. Thanks for the giveaway and thanks to everyone who shared in this hop.

Abbigail said...

What beautiful little purses and what lucky friends! You have done an amazing job on these ans you can do one in 17 minutes!!! Wow! I would have to pick Yvette, Melanie and Penelope for my 3 favs.

Pierro said...

Rosemary B here:
Oh these purses are like sunshine this morning (we are having cold rain right now)
I adore each and every single one.... very hard to pick. the Ghastlie ones are really special. that fabric is hilarious.
I just think this is very very hard to pick, but I adore bright shiny objects, and girly stuff.
So, my three favorites are eh,hmmm...
Danielle tottally!, with the tea cuppies and the pink ribbon
Jane - with the lovely pink roses and the little ribbon
and finally
oh my this was too difficult, you could have chosen to say pick 5 or something.....
okay my last fav is Penelope.

and Xandra hahahaha and Octavia haha I am so naughty
I adore the interior fabrics, I know you chose those fabrics with just as much care.
These purses can become quite addicting. I put them up on my face book page and everyone was all over them like bees.
Thank you for sharing your massive creativity all around, from the creation of this marvelous pattern, your enthusiam and of course your inspiration.
Now we will just have to have another blog hop to release us from (yeah right) this obsession with little purses.

Have a lovely day Miss Samm

Dorian said...

Good morning Samm, LOL, you crack me up!! Look at all those pretties. My favorite is Jane, I LOVE that fabric! And Yvette (not fond of a person with that name) but love the beautiful fabric and embroidery. And Gabby, because I, too, love green apples :) and this one is darling! You did a beautiful job on them all Samm.

Truffle queen said...

Emily, Felicity, and Jane! What a fabulous hop! I love, love, love these little purses! I can certainly understand how they are addicting! Now to "design" a "quick-change" purse that uses only one frame - not like the gal who "unsewed" her frame for each photo shoot!! lol Thank you for sharing all your purses and for your inspiration! Makes my head spin!!

the girlfriend gap said...

Madame Samm, You never cease to amaze me :) My favorites... Alexandra, Charlie, Penelope ... They make me want to stop carrying a billfold and start carrying a coin purse for heaven sake! I just can't get over how cute they are. Janita

Thank you Madame Samm for this challenge and for the giveaway. It was fun to see all of the marvelous little coin purses.

Katherine said...

The ABCs never looked so good! What a fun a lovely line-up of coin purse beauties, Madame Samm. I'm picturing lots of smiling faces on friends and family when they find these awaiting them on Christmas day.

LJ said...

You are just the most creative person I've ever known. What a amazing idea to use the alphabet and name each and every purse!! I tried to look at the purses first and then at the names because some names are rather special; Emily is a grandbaby's name. Soooo, my favorites in order are: Daniella, Alexandra, and Quinn. Thanks Madame Samm for a totally fun hop. Thanks, too, for the pattern and the great tut. The possibilies for this coin purse are unlimited!

Snoodles said...

Dear friend, thank you for your kind words last night. Our hearts are heavy today; this morning we brought our dear friend back to the farm and buried her in one of her favorite spots. (To anyone else reading this....please know that I'm not talking about a human.) I wanted to stop by and say hello and that all of your creations are lovely. (My fav is Penelope - you're right, how can you go wrong with a sewing machine, orange, and dots?LOL) Thanks again for being so kind and I hope to visit the others who share this day....but for now, I need some time in the woods with Pepper. Hugs to you.

Cheryl T said...

Oh my! They are ALL fabulous. And, by that, I mean everybody in the entire blog hop made a fabulous coin purse. Of yours, Madame Samm, I LOVE the precious pink "Jane" purse. But I also love "Yevette's" blue handwork. "Xandra" is also kick, with that angry baby face. But, I adore Quinn, Ulric and Zoe too. They are ALL "priceless".

Mara said...

A lovely collection, my favorites are Danielle and Jane for the bows, Alexandra and Gabby for the apples (you should make that pattern available, I would buy it), and of course Octavia for the Red Threads ladybugs, love it! Thanks for the blog hop, I had so much fun.

elnorac said...

Yikes! Seventeen minutes????? That's just wild... Penelope is my fav because it's sewing-related. You're so awesome to make so many!!!!

supermomnocape said...

In order from first to third... Nancy, Octavia and Jane. You've certainly been able to fill your Christmas list with the purses you made for the hop. I'm sure each one will be loved and treasured.

Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win!

Sue said...

Wow! You were a busy little bee! Love them all but faves are Alexandra, Charlie(and Woodstock) and Penelope! Great fun and great blog. Glad you talked me into participating!

The entire alphabet - this would be an adorable idea for young learners! Inside each purse, there could be foam letter shapes for tactile learners, too. I love "the girls" the best - they look like 'glampers'! Have you checked out that new book by Mary Jane called "Glamping"? If not, you simply MUST! She even has her own fabric line now, too.

This whole week has been like a virtual vacation,that I personally have enjoyed to the fullest! Thanks to you Madame Samm :) How am I ever going to get any projects done when I keep seeing little coin purses in my stash? ;) Thank You for such a wonderful week.

Jo said...

I like the Alexandra, Katie, Octavia, Gabby, Ulric.... very cute with all the different fabrics for all the different personalities.

Allison said...

I absolutely adore the Penelope! charlie & ulric are very nice, too :)

kbzelazny said...

Melanie, Nancy, and Zoe. They are so cute!

Maria Kievit said...

Yvette, Jane and Danielle. Because I love blue, and love the little bows making it so feminine for the others. Thanks for going out of your way to do these hops for us! Have really enjoyed them.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

They are all so cute! 17 minutes? Really? It takes me that long to decide on what fabric to use! LOL My favorites? Gabby. Penelope, Xandra Great show!

Scrapbook-ChickADoodle said...

Amazing! They are all so wonderful. " The girls" and "the fam" are terrific, but my top 3: Danielle, Octavia, and Penelope.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Joanne said...

All of these are fabulous, but I especially like Quinn (my granddaughter's name), Penelope (great sewing machine - and it's orange!) and Raeann (I love the tape measure). The linings are great as well, and I've found that over the past 7 days, I find that what people used for their linings is often just as exciting as what they used for their purse outsides.

WOW! You've gotten this down to making one in 17 minutes? I think I need to practice. :-) Thanks again for another wonderful hop.

Sharon said...

Wow you have out did yourself Madame Samm they are all wonderful. I love Danielle, Gabby and Jane. But I alos like Fam...This whole week was wonderful to see all the versions of this little coin purse. I made one but that was my prototype and that even turned out good. The pattern is just wonderful Madame Samm. thanks do much for such a fun project.

Julie said...

Very difficult to choose favorite! I guess I would have to say Alexandra (I have a thing for apples), Penelope, and Raeann are my top choices, though they are all excellent. Thanks for the idea and the hop. I may have to succumb and get a pattern soon.

Patty D from NC said...

You outdid even yourself with this set!! My favorites are Charlie (love Charlie Brown), Penelope - great name for a sewing machine as well as a purse - and Katie (my DD's name). Another excellent hop.

Patricia said...

Wow! I'm impressed. Not sure I could make that many of the same pattern. They look wonderful! I really like Alexandra, Penelope and Raeann.

Mary said...

I just have to say, WOW!!! you were not kidding! Your purses are so wonderful. You can tell you had fun creating each and every one of them. You have had another priceless hop! Congratulations.

Debbie said...

So that's where all the clasps in this country went to!!! ;) Charlie Brown is my favorite for a number of reasons, he's my Eeyore of the comics, and I love autumn it's such a beautiful time of the year. For some reason I like mine in alphabetical order too. Felicity is #2 yes i need someone like this to guard my money. And then Octavia's bright flower and whimsical bugs on the side. The sewing machine one, um Penelope, might have been a favorite but I don't like orange 1/2 as much as you :)
But I AM trying

David Joos said...

Love your sense of humor! My favorites are Charlie, Danielle, and Penelope. You are such an inspiration.
I'm going to try making one:)

I can't believe you made that many. Jeez, woman, you are amazing! I thought of you tonight when I went to shop--I said "23 minutes tops!" and stuck to it. Isha, Melanie, and Penelope are my favorites

hueisei said...

I love RaeAnn, Jane and Sabrina. Wow. Amazing!

Rebeckah Austin said...

Jane, Danielle, Penolope, LOVELY!

Leah said...

Lots of great coin purses. It is amazing how each one can be so unique just from the use of different fabrics.

DonnaJ said...

All of the purses are very cute, but my favorite is FAM and the GIRLS. The fabric used to make these is so pretty.

Lisa in Port Hope said...

Penelope, Katie, and Yvette. But they're all very nice. I have made only one, but messed up the lining, so I will have to try, try again.
