I’m so excited to share this Vintage Coin Purse tutorial and pattern with you today!
I love coin purses. They’re just so useful, so little and so cute!
I also love that they’re a great gift that, if you sew, can come together pretty quickly. And if you don’t sew, they’re a perfect beginner project! Consumer Crafts has adorable (and super reasonable!) Vintage-Style Coin Purse Frames, but it doesn’t come with a pattern so I whipped one up. Hope you enjoy!
Supplies needed for the Vintage Coin Purse tutorial:
- Coin Purse Frames
- Free Coin Purse Pattern
- Basic Sewing Supplies (either by hand or machine)
- Embroidery Floss and Needle
- Fabric & Sewing Machine
- Extra Small Yo-Yo Maker (optional)
Step 1. Using the Free Coin Purse Tutorial Pattern, cut out four pieces of fabric of your choice. In my example, the light blue fabric will be the outside of my coin purse and the red will be the lining.
Step 5. Place the outer fabric pouch inside of the lining pouch (right sides facing). Making sure to keep the flaps aligned, sew the top flaps together from one marking/slit to the other. Make sure to leave a small opening in one of the flaps (pictured below).
Step 7. Now you’re going to hand stitch the pouch to the frame. I found it handy to keep the pouch flap in place with two small pieces of tape. I just sewed right through them and then tore them off when the stitching was complete. I used a full strand of embroidery floss with a really large needle, but you could also just use a normal needle and thread.
