Coin Purse

Coin PurseLooking for a quick easy project?  How about making a cute coin purse.  Not only is this a quick project but it's a great way to use up those extra scraps you have lying around.  The finished size of this one is 4" X 3" but it's very easy to adjust if you'd like to make a zipper pouches of different sizes.  I used some leftover laminated cotton but you may use regular fabric for this, it just may not hold its shape as well and be a little more on the flimsy side.  You can also use felt and decorate it like we do with our multimedia pouch or use fabric glue to attach pretty rhinestones and embellish.

These coin purses also make great gifts and are perfect size for slipping in a gift card as a little extra gift, or great for making for yourself, when you need a little extra storage compartment.

    Hi, Just about to make your lovely coin purse. Can you please tell me the measurements of the laminated cotton as I am unable to print at present. Thankyou

    I made one of these tonight using a fluorescent bandana (I needed something bright to be able to find it in my black bag). So easy! Thanks!

    hmmm…I would try making your zipper just a bit shorter and see if that helps.

    I am using this project to work on my zipper skills. I’m doing something wrong when lining up the zipper. I’ve made many attempts on this coin purse and each one ends up with one side of the zipper extending significantly beyond the fabric. How can I best line everything up to avoid this? Thanks!

    This looks like a fun project. Just printed out the pattern. Now I can use some of my left over fabric.
