I’m becoming obsessed with purses while designing my first one and i wanted to make a cute little coin purse that could also hold some other cards.
This is so cute and my cards fit perfectly. Firstly if your a beginner and scared of zips it’s OK! You can make the snap version! Check that out here!

You will need less than 1 fat quarter of fabric (scrap friendly)
1 x 7″ Zipper
Cut out the pattern pieces and transfer markings to the front of the card fabric pieces
If you are using interfacing (optional) fuse it onto the card piece now.
Fold the card piece accordion style as indicated on the pattern, from the bottom wrong sides together on the fold line (Marked lines), then right sides together (tricky bit) and wrong sides then right sides together.
Press once you have it how you like it and Top stitch the card slots.
Baste stitch the card slots down 1/4″ from the side edges.
Make the other side the same way.
Attach the to the zip by placing the zip face down on to the right side of the card side and the lining on top of the zip
Pin, glue or use clips while sewing.
Open out and top stitch.
Attach the exterior side and lining pieces to the other side of the zip the same way being careful to ensure that the fabric lines up with the other side as best you can.
(mines not perfect either!)
Now move the zipper pull to the centre. VERY IMPORTANT!
Now match up and pin the two front pieces together and the two lining pieces together.
Ensure that the zipper teeth point towards the lining.
Sew all the way around with a 1/2″ seam allowance leaving a 3″ hole at the bottom of the lining for turning.
Trim the side seams down to 1/4″ and clip the corners and excess zip tape.
Carefully turn the pouch right side out through the hole you left.
close the hole with a top stitch or you could blind hand stitch it.
Push the lining inside the purse and ENJOY!
