Today a tutorial for a beautiful coin purse that is made with a frame clasp and colorful coordinating fabrics.
Coin Purse Tutorial
What’s so special about this pattern? Talented Mandy from SugarBeeCrafts teaches us how to make those corners at the bottom of the purse to give volume to the purse. The secret: look at green bag in the picture. Pinch the fabric where there is no white line drawn over the purse (i.e. at the bottom right of the purse) and fold the fabric inwards and sew over it (i.e. as per the bottom left corner of the purse). The last photo in the collage shows you how professional your purse corner will look on the outside of the purse.
Tip: to give strength, more color and a more professional look to the bag, you should line it. This means you should cut your shape 4x and make 2 bags that fold into each other of which one inside out, and the other right-side out.
Materials Needed to Make this Purse
1. 4 Tiny bits of quilting fabric, such as the Moda fat quarters, Amy Butler fat quarters, Robert Kaufman fat quarters, Michael Miller fat quarters or Riley Blake quilting fabric. It is a great way to use up coordinating fabrics that you have left over from other sewing and quilting projects.
2. Bag purse clasp (also called a purse frame).
3. E-6000 glue to attach the fabric to the frame. Read up more on glue here: "which glue for what project".
I am lucky as have a frame laying around from a beaded purse whose beads have come loose, I have some fabric bits, plus fab glue, i.e. I have all that I need to make this. And quite possibly: so do you!
