{IBS} Canvas Coin Purse

Good morning!!
Well I have been busy getting my DT assignments for the month of February done, because March is even busier and more EXCITING!!!  :) 

So I have been learning to sew!!  Sewing on card does not count!!  That is easy!!! 
My hubby and I were at the store and I saw these beautiful coin purses.  I picked one up to examine it and the first thing out of my hubby's mouth was, "You can make one even better than that!!"  I love that man..He has more confidence in my abilities, than I have for myself.   So with the image in my head and the idea brewing, we went straight the craft store.  With canvas and a zipper in hand, I was eager to get started!!  After 5 attempted disasters and 4 days of frustration, this is my final product.

So what do you think!!!???  Be gentle please, as I am really proud of my first Coin Purse!!
I used my Inspired by Stamping stamp set to bring life  and color to the purse.
For the top of the purse I used Scallop Border Crochet Trim and Rose Seam Binding
I used Spring Lilacs on my purse today.   I stamped the script and the one sparrow using Stazon: Timber Brown.  The colored is also stamped with Stazon:Timber Brown, but on Fabric Transfer paper.  I stamped the paper with the image and the ironed it onto my canvas.  Once it cooled, I removed the backing.  Then I colored the image using my Copic Markers.

Here is the back of the coin purse.
