TRIA Mini Coin Purse - PDF Sewing Pattern and detailed instructions

This is a cute tiny coin purse that does not take up much space. It's flat, so you can easily slide it into a jacket pocket or carry anywhere attached on your key ring, or clipped on your bag. When unzipped, it turns to a nice little cone, making it easy to see the coins.

This coin pouch is lined and reinforced by fusible interfacing to keep its shape. You can easily scale pattern if you want a larger size. It's a great scrap-buster project, and it makes an excellent handmade present or stocking stuffer!

Instructions include: * how to add fusible interfacing * how to shorten zippers and add zipper tabs * how to sew in zippers the neat way (no more pinched ends!)

FINISHED SIZE * apprx. 5″ wide, 4″ tall, 0.5″ depth * EASILY ADJUSTABLE: - You can easily scale pattern if you want a larger size – just eyeball the size of the zipper required!
