This little zip bag was fashioned for Shayna to contain "Birthday Dollars" after taking a class from my sewing instructor and friend, Judy Dantz, at Sew From the Heart.
The design is machine embroidered with my Bernina on white felt and quilted with free motion quilting (also taught by Judy). (I designed the horse to look like Ben who is an appaloosa.) I realized, of course, that white would not endure much handling by a 9 year old girl so I assembled it encased in vinyl.
Shayna loves Ben and she loved her "Ben Loves Shayna" purse -- and, I don't think she minded what was inside the zipper.
