Small purses are always welcome in the lives of us gals. Sometimes we need them for coins, sometimes for your earphones, sometimes for that lifesaving hand or face cream during windy days, and many other similar small items.

This DIY coin purse is one of those practical little bags that looks great and comes in handy. It’s your choice what you’ll use it for, but you should definitely make it because it’s simple and fun, not to mention adorable.

Cut the fabric

For this project, you will need 6 square pieces of fabric that are about 6 inches in size.

Out of those six pieces, two should be from the main fabric, two from the lining, and two interfacing pieces.

Stack the layers

Fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the main fabric pieces.

Set one lining piece onto your workspace with its right side up and place the zipper over it so that it aligns with its edge.

Set one main fabric piece over it with its right side down. Align all edges and pin.

Sew the layers

Stitch along the outer edge of the zipper.

Flip both layers to the other side.

Repeat the process of stacking from the previous step.

Stitch along the other side of the zipper.

Flip the layers so that you have one main and one lining piece on each side. Press everything.

Fold the ribbon in half and sew it onto the upper edge of one of the main fabric pieces.

Form the coin purse

Sew the two main fabric pieces together along the raw edges parallel to the zipper. Do the same with the lining fabric pieces.

Unzip the zipper halfway, then align the seams of the main and lining fabric pieces with the zipper teeth. Push the seam to the side and stitch the two fabrics together.

Cut off the excess zipper fabric and clip the corners.

Finish the coin purse

Pull the lining seam and the main fabric seam away from each other. Fold the zipper so that the teeth face the lining.

Sew the raw edges, closing the bag shut. Leave a gap for turning though!

Trim the excess zipper fabric and the corners.

Turn the bag inside out and push out the corners.

Fold the raw edges of the opening in and sew the opening shut.

Now you can start using the purse!
