Make and Bake



I was in the mood to make something and I ran across a pattern to make these lovely Zip-Itself Tetrahedron Coin Purses! I used a decorative jacquard ribbon for one of them and used fabric that I made into bias with the other two. They can be addicting! You can find the pattern here. Hubby wants me to make 5 more for Christmas gifts for work! Hmmm... I will have to see what I have time for!


You can see how the blue one zips out. Just too cool! I have a purse made from one too but takes a lot longer zipper! The coin purse needs a 20 or 22 inch one.


I was also hungry for Biscotti lately. Yummy!



You can find the recipe here. Mine had almonds and dried cranberries added. I am now taking a break from the coin purses and having a good cup of Green Mountain Carmel Vanilla Cream coffee with a biscotti or two or three.... hee hee.
