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
