I made these little coin purses for my sister's stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts! They measure approximately 7" x 3" and lined. This is a good fabric scraps buster, also!
I used a shape from a stencil; cut two of coordinating fabrics each; sewed each piece, then inserted the lining fabric into the main purse; pressed selvedge edges down and sewed all around the edges. I couldn't decide on a closure (velcro, button, snap, etc.). No zippers...it will not work for this purse! Anyhow, I need to have these in the mail today!
