I really needed a small coin case! Rather than head to the store and buy one, I decided to DIY the most adorable and functional coin case to put in my handbag. I bought gorgeous fabric and couldn't wait to get started with this awesome project. My new coin case is just perfect! I am so happy with the end results! If you want to learn all the tips and tricks to making this gorgeous little coin case, my tutorial is exactly what you need! Follow my simple, step-by-step guide and get started on DIYing the cutest coin case.
To begin the DIY project, you will need to curve the edges of a piece of fusible fleece. This fleece is going to be attached to the 4 by 6 and ⅜ inch piece of fabric.
Once you have cut the fleece, place the fleece on the outer piece of fabric, and press it on.
Next, place your fused piece of fabric on the second piece of lining fabric, and clip the pieces together. Then trim the edges to curve them to match the fleece.
Next, take a piece of fusible fleece 10 inches by 3 and a ¼ inches and fold the piece in half and draw a line down the center.
Next, mark a point 2 and ¾ inches on either side of the centerline.
Then, using your ruler, measure 3 and ¼ inches on either side of the centerline at the bottom of the fleece. Draw two lines, connecting the top points to the bottom points.
Next, mark 4 and ⅝ inches from the two points on the bottom of the fleece.
Then draw a line from each top corner of the fleece to the points you had just made.
Next, it’s time to cut along those two lines.
Next, take a piece of fabric that is 10 inches by 10 and ⅜ inches and fold it in half, lengthwise. Place the piece of fleece on the bottom half of the fabric and press it on.
Then cut the corners of the fabric at the bottom so that it matches the edges of the fleece. Fold over the fabric, press it and then trim off the corners of the other half as well.
Next, fold the fabric along the outer two lines that you drew on the fleece.
Open the fabric back up. Next, fold over the fabric and then fold the two side pieces where you had just made creases in the fabric. Once you have the folds, press the fabric.
Next, hop on over to your sewing machine and sew along the fold of the fabric.
Mark ¾ inches from the top of your smaller lining piece of fabric. Then mark 1 and ¼ inches from the bottom of the folded piece.
Press a small piece of fusible fleece on the other side of the fabric behind the point you had just marked.
Use a seam ripper, to open up two lines on the edge of your marking in order to attach the press stud. Repeat the same for the folded fabric but make sure it doesn’t pierce all the way through to the second layer of fabric.
Place the two small pieces of fabric together, wrong sides facing, and sew all the way around.
Next, place the folded fabric on the pieces you had just sewed, Clip the fabric so that the bottoms match up. Next, pull the side panel up slightly so that the edge of it lines up perfectly with the side of the other piece and clip the pieces together. Repeat the same for the second side.
With the case finally coming together and looking super cute, sew around the edges to attach the two pieces together.
Use scissors to clean up the edges of the coin case so that it has a gorgeous, professional finish.
Finally, it’s time to attach the bias tape to the case. Pin the bias tape along the outside of the case, creating small folds along the curves so that the tape would look perfect when sewed down. Once the tape has been pinned, sew it on ⅜ inches in from the edge of the coin case.
Then pull the bias tape over to the other side of the case and double fold the ends to get a beautiful, clean finish.
Finally, hand sew the bias tape down. This step takes a little time but it is totally worth it!
