Tutorial:  Sugar Skull Coin Purses

I recently got a box of really great new merchandise from Crafty Chica and ILoveToCreate, including some wonderful sugar skull patches.  I knew right away that they would be great for quickly personalizing all kinds of different stuff from the dollar store!  Since the colors of the sugar skulls are bold and bright, I wanted to use them to embellish something equally bright.  These coin …
