The Beer Purse

The Beer Purse took First Place at a local Feis Dance/Art what does beer have to do with Irish dancing? everything! I placed higher in my sewing than my dancing that day.
This is sewn from Butterick BP439 view C. I thought it was going to be a bit bigger so I was a little disappointed in the dimensions. I used red quilted fabric from my stash, purchased a fat quarter of the wheat fabric and cut up a pair of Guinness Boxers (new ones I purchased on Ebay) and appliqued with red metallic thread. I did not care for the pattern so I don't plan on using this one again.
