I have been so busy lately with most of my time taken up with caring for a newborn and a toddler, among many other things, that I almost forgot to tell you about my latest pattern over on Esty, the Strawberry Coin Purse. Juggling everything lately feels a bit like a marathon, but I’m hanging in there and it’s all still managing to happen somehow.
My sewing time has suffered greatly, but it’s amazing what you can do in 10-15 minutes here and there and this is what’s so great about small quick sewing projects, like my Strawberry Coin Purse. It’s a quick a simple pattern that can be made in an hour or in my case, small bursts of 10-15 minutes and still finished in a day.
I love strawberries and zipper pouches, so it was only a matter of time until I came up with a strawberry shaped pouch. This sweet Strawberry Coin Purse Is the perfect gift for a little girl or maybe you know a strawberry loving big girl too. It’s the perfect size to fit a few coins and notes and maybe even a small lip gloss or treat or two.
They fit some sweet sewing supplies too and are the perfect size for small thread snips. I love this pouch so much that I’m even considering making a template for a larger size, which I think would be so much fun.
The best part about this pouch though is there’s no complicated binding on the inside to hide the raw edges. Instead, I use a special yet simple construction technique so there are no raw seams, and no complicated binding. It’s a win-win.
If you want to use my pattern template to do something a little different and still have lots of fun, check out this sweet version that’s finished with tiny rainbow piping made by the very talented Ali over at her blog Arabesque Scissors.
If you want to make a strawberry coin purse too, you can find the pattern in my Etsy store.
