Trying to get back in the groove

I needed a little pick me up, the quilts I am making right now are big and require lots of thought. My brain has been shut down these past few weeks. So, I pulled out a coin purse pattern I've had, and decided to give it a go.
The pattern is called Cash & Carry by Atkinson Designs. I thought they were cute, and I like finding new ways to make little bags. My favorite was the one that held the cards on the outside pockets, so this is the one I tried first.
I made a few mistakes, and realized half way through that I should have been using a walking foot.. but I plan to make several more soon! I got my practice one in now :D
