Coin Purse With Button – A Free Crochet Pattern

free_purse_crochet_patternWhen I’m teaching my 5 week courses, I often get students that finish their projects before others so I have developed a number of small, “mini-projects” to help keep
them busy in class! This little purse is one of them!

This pattern is for a simple crocheted purse made in one piece– starting from the bottom up, in a spiral. The flap is then worked flat without breaking off the yarn and includes a button loop.

Pattern Format:
Pattern is written in US crochet terminology and includes 6 pages with photos and mini tutorials for some of the techniques involved and can be downloaded as a pdf.

Specific gauge is not required, however you are looking to achieve a relatively dense and firm fabric to attain the correct structure for the purse.

Finished dimensions:
Aran – approx. 4”/10cm tall & 4.5”/11cm wide

Chunky – approx. 5”/7.5cm tall & 6”/15cm wide

Easy – magic ring (instructions given), single crochet, working in the round, increasing and decreasing (instructions given), working flat in double crochet, basic sewing skills (attaching a button), keeping track of rounds with stitch marker.

Make to sell:
You may make these purses to sell, either for charity or personal profit if you are a small scale crafter. All I ask is that you place the following text credit, either in your online listing or on a small piece of paper with the finished item: Design from
