If you don't know the talented Wynn behind ZakkaArt, then I am grateful to be the one who get to introduce you to her.  She is - by far - one the sweetest ladies in blogland with one of the prettiest styles out there.

Case in point, my most recent creation - a coin pouch kit she designed and made.

This was such a joy to make.  It literally came in the mail about 40 hours ago.  Once I started it I was doing little else in my spare time.  It is so much fun.  And it did not touch the sewing machine.  This little cutie is 100% handmade - all the patchwork piecing, the quilting, and the assembly. 

And that doesn't even include how perfect every single fabric is for me!  Pink, aqua, white, bows, strawberries, flowers ... even the bias cut gingham binding ... all of it is absolute perfection.

Pure joy.  That's what this project was for me.

Thank you Wynn, from the  bottom of my heart.  I'm honoured to call you friend. xo

I love the coin purse, but I can't find where to buy the pattern. Can you please help?
Thank you!

So cute! I had not seen a zipper version before. I think the bias gingham is my favorite touch.

This takes me back to being a little girl in the 60's- the bow the check, the baby blue and pink- it's adorable-and in case you have forgotten, I am the devotee who has been reading your blog day by day for the last 10 months- 2 months left and I already don't know how I'll do without being able to refer back to posts from 2011. Thank you for reminding me of how much I love sewing and quilting even when my machine is out of reach!

Yes, please tell us how we can purchase the pattern and can you perhaps, do a tutorial or give info - is it difficult? I love doing handwork, but it sure does not look easy. Love it - very cute!

So glad to see that you sewed one of Wynn's little jewels! It came out perfect! I made a pouch with one of her kits, too, and am so glad I did! For me, the biggest lesson was that sewing binding to a pouch by hand was easy! It had always seemed as though it would be difficult before I actually did it.

Wynn is such a talented contributor to our warm online sewing community, as are you! :)
