Well the story, and it's not much of a story, is that I suddenly wanted to make a stupidly tall coin purse. So I made a sketch, and it's not much of a sketch, then I drafted a pattern, and then I made this. /fin

It's a plum purple and mustard coin purse. It's a foot tall. It's untenable because the kiss-clasp opening isn't large enough to stick your hand through. So I imagine you could drop some things in and have trouble retrieving them. Forewarned is fore-armed; now you know.

It has hand-stitched patches on both sides, with deep teal stitching. It's got a striped linen strap with piping. The clasp is bedazzled with muppet-like waxed floss. 

particulars:
• actual measurements: 12 inches tall, 6 inches at widest point across bottom, 4 inch deep gusset

• fabric: 100% cotton canvas, linen trim; dyed with professional lightfast procion dyes
• care: spot clean
hand made by me in my studio — one of a kind
