This is the original idea of what I want to design and make instead of the kitty coin purse!!!! The test purse turned out too gentle and cute, so I made it into kitty purse. This one, with the ferocious look , it resembles more like a tiger now 🙂
This purse is 11cm W x 8cm H (11 cm from tip of ear) / 4 1/4″ x 3 1/8″. Nice enough to keep some loose coins, notes, credit cards, or you can use it to keep your keys, or cosmetic for touching-up while out.
Just like the kitty coin purse, I used buff color polar fleece to fake the tiger’s fur. This time, I embroidered some branch stitches on the forehead and temporal points to mimic the tiger stripes. I also added a big muzzle on the tiger, sewed some black beads there to exaggerate the expressions. I gave it a pair of black button eyes, so it looks like it is staring at me (roar… I want to eat you, lol!!!). The nose bit is a piece of small black felt.
[At the background is the crochet tote I made many years ago, but I gave it a facelift last year by embellishing it with a daisy, put in lining and a zippy pocket, plus some elastic bands to hold contents in place.]
Let’s get the instruction of how to put the pattern together and sew the tiger coin purse.
