A cute little zipper coin purse with a snappy flappy outside pocket. This is definitely a fat quarter and scrap friendly pattern. Feel the need to sew up something cute that isn’t going to take yards of fabric, a lot of hardware or a lot of time? Then this always-useful coin purse sewing pattern could be just exactly what you need to sew.
The Flap Coin Purse has one exterior pocket with snap closure for cards, receipts or folded notes, a main zipper coin pocket for all of your change, and a side connector that you can hook to your keys. You could even add a slim wristlet strap for hands-free convenience. But this little coin purse works just as well slipped inside your main bag or clutch bag to keep your money easily on hand.
This beginner pattern is a quick sew that uses only a small amount of each contrasting fabric. For the more experienced, you can try this in cork or vinyl too.
For extra fun, sew some for the kids in their favorite cartoon or licenced fabrics. Good stocking stuffers for your girl-pals, and easy sellers at craft fairs too.
