Vintage Inspired Coin Purse Free Crochet Pattern



I loved designing and crocheting this vintage inspired coin purse and I think you will enjoy making it!  In addition to working a pretty stitch pattern, you will learn how to sew your crochet piece onto hardware. Java is a beautiful yarn that creates perfect stitch definition, with just the right amount of sheen. My daughters have been 'fighting' over this sample. Thank goodness it is a quick pattern to create, with a minimal amount of yarn, so I can easily make more!

Love this pattern, but where do you get the frames?

Jocelyn Sass said...

Susan, I purchased all my frames at Michael's Crafts and Joann Crafts. If they are no longer available, you can buy them on Etsy! I hope this helps!
