Coin Purse

 I finally bought a clasp to make a coin purse a couple of weeks ago.  Yesterday I made my first coin purse.  I need to find a better pattern to follow though.
I fussy cut the big rose for the front of the coin purse,
and fussy cut two smaller roses for the back of the coin purse.
 This is the inside of the coin purse.  I love this material too, it just makes me smile!
To keep it real:  My corners where the latch bends, are not sewn very well and are a mess.  I tried reinforcing them by hand stitching them.  The tutorial I found said to glue the top into the clasp to hold it while I sewed it on.  Not only did the glue make a mess, but as it dried, it made it very difficult to push the needle through.  I was thinking of maybe seeing if my binder clips would work to hold the material in place while I sew it onto the clasp.  If you have a pattern you like to use, please share it with me!  My friend, Clarissa, asked me to make her one!  LOL

Gorgeous fabric and from where I'm sitting it looks great. I've only ever made one framed purse and it was a sew in frame - very fiddly, but it worked well. It was an evening purse, so much bigger than a coin purse. I make a mess with glue for even the simplest of projects, so thought the sewing would be easier for me.

I have wanted to try this too but wasn't sure how to put it together

This is very darling! The prints you used are sweet. It reminds me that I have a clasp I need to stitch up a pocket purse for! :)

Very cute, I like those fabrics too. Visiting from Creative Goodness. That glue always makes a mess for me too, I just don't use it anymore. I would think some clips would work as you are thinking.

Oh this coin purse is very pretty. My sister wanted to have such one and I'm actually trying to sew such for the first time.
