Zippered Coin Purse

Fully Lined

This clever design creates a fully lined, zippered coin purse. Quick and easy to make; however zipper installation skill is necessary. Use a fat quarter for the outer shell. Fusible fleece gives the coin purse just the right amount of stiffness.

Size approximately 5.5" x 4"



One 10" x 10" piece of fabric each for outer shell and lining
1/3 yard of 45" width fabric is enough for both outer shell and lining
OR use 1 fat quarter for outer shell.

One 10" x 10" piece of fusible fleece

One 7" zipper

1.  Use pattern to cut out one outer shell, one piece of fusible fleece and one lining.

Pattern Placement: Fold each piece of fabric in half and place the pattern on the fold. DO NOT cut the folded edge.

2.  Cut fusible fleece slightly smaller (cut about 1/8" off all the way around). Following the instructions on the fusible fleece, fuse it to the wrong side of the lining.

3.  With RIGHT sides together, stitch the lining to the outer shell; stitch all the way around, leaving area between "x" marks open (see photo on right).

4.  Turn right side out. Press. Slip stitch opening closed (or machine stitch close to edge).

6.  Pin one end of the zipper to the inside of one end of the opening in the coin purse.

See photo at right.

Unzip zipper and pin the other end of the zipper into place. Then pin in the zipper all the way around the opening.

7.  Use a zipper foot to stitch the zipper into place. Stitch about 1/8" away from the edge of the coin purse opening. You might have to switch your zipper foot to the opposite side to finish stitching the zipper into place - in order to stay close to the teeth all the way around.

NOTE: I did not stitch right next to the teeth. I left about 1/8" of the zipper tape showing on each side of the teeth.
