FREE Fox Coin Purse Pattern by GYCT

I have had a busy, busy, busy sewing week. I think I made seven items this past week and participated in six different pattern test. Six? Yeah, six. I might be crazy.

I had the pleasure of testing for Chelsea of GYCT again this week. Chelsea is lovely and we have a lot of fun in the testing group. I’m happy I got to be a part of another one of her pattern tests. I’ve previously tested her Love Me Knot Shorts pattern, and blogged about it here and here.

This time I was pattern testing for her FREE Fox Coin Purse pattern. That’s right! Free, yo!

My fox has a backstory.

His name is Fox (picked by my 5 yr old). There is a recessive tiger stripe gene that runs in his family. He plans to use this to his advantage, while pursing his dreams of performing in Cats The Musical on Broadway in New York City.

I’m sending him to my Godmother, Kathy, for her birthday.

You can find the FREE pattern here on Craftsy. Once you get all the cutting out of the way, it’s a super quick sew. The cutting takes the longest because of the little pieces. And even then, it doesn’t take that long.

Jessica blogged about her Fox Coin Purse over at The Berry Bunch. You should stop by, read her post, and say hi.

Alyssa, Queen of the Pattern Test, also blogged about the Fox Coin Purse over at Keep Calm and Carrion. She even made a cat!

Woah, did you know that when you use your actual laptop to write a post, and you enter a hyper link there is a box you can check to make the link pop up in its own window/tab? Fun. Yes, I’m easily amused.

About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
