How to sew a coin purse with a sew-in purse frame

At the moment, I’m all about small and cute projects.  My stash has been worn down by quite a bit of bag sewing for friends and for fun, so while I wait on some new fabric supplies to arrive from overseas, I’m working with small pieces, and mixing and matching.

I had a couple of these little half-round purse frames with the kiss-lock and though it time to tackle a pattern for them.  Actually pattern drafting for fixed size frames like this is a bit harder than I thought, you really to need to fiddle quite a bit with the shape and the size to get something that’s workable and in the right proportion.

In the end I was over-complicating it – this is a

simple pattern and totally ideal for beginners.  And because you are using the ready-made hardware, you can get a really good looking result too.  And it uses only a small amount of fabric.  It’s a winner all round.  These would make lovely gifts and stocking stuffers – give them a try, you’ll be hooked!
