Sew-licious Little Things
Have a pup to guard your pennies with this cute change purse. It’s entirely hand stitched, but just with simple irregular blanket stitch, which is forgiving if you’re an embroidery newbie. All zippers will be too long, but don’t worry about that either, as they are very easy to shorten.

You Will Need
Trace the templates and cut out. Iron the fusible interfacing onto the backs of the large pieces of felt and cut out two puppy heads, remembering to flip the template before cutting the second head to produce a front and a back. Cut one ear from the small piece of felt.
Before you get to the other end of the tape, close the zipper, then fold the cut end over to the back of the neck, keeping the fold square, and blanket stitch it in place. Fasten off on the wrong side. Remove the basting stitches. Blanket stitch the other edge of the tape to the back head in the same way. Iron patches of fusible interfacing over visible stitching on the back of the head, just to protect it from coins when the purse is used.
Pin the heads together. Using matching sewing thread, whip stitch the folded ends of the zipper tapes together. Then use three strands of embroidery floss and irregular blanket stitch to sew the heads together all around the edges. Open the zipper to fasten off the thread on the inside of the purse.
