Now that's what I call a restock!

I started making these little unlined coin purses for two main reasons - to use a part of the jeans which seemed too good to waste, and to provide a very cheap purchase, particularly aimed at children.  They have proved very popular and are almost symbolic of my Sewing for Utange project - something unusual which everyone can afford.  The purchase of one of these purses feeds a child for a week.
I sell a lot of them, so I seem to be constantly making them.  I also use a lot of jeans, so always seem to have a stock of front pockets to use up!  The combination of these factors has led to this:

As the title says, that's what I call a restock!
I like this little one in particular.  The darts make it fun - it came from a little girl's denim skirt.
 I'll be sharing this post at these link parties:
