How to make a fabric coin purse
Using the template provided, cut out two purse shapes from your fabric. Pin your zip face-down on one piece. Sew in place by hand or use a zipper foot on your machine. Open it out and press.
Place your second piece of fabric over your zipper, right sides together. Sew as you did in step one. Open out, press and unzip part way.
Hand or machine tack your trim in place along the front edge of your purse. Fold your fabric in half, matching seams.
Sew all the way around the outside edge. Turn your purse right sides out, pushing out the seam edges. Fill with coins!
