Leather Coin Purse – Free Tutorial | Craft Passion

This leather coin purse is approximate 3″ x 4″, 1/2″ bigger than the no-sew leather pouch . It is perfect to be used as a coin purse and a card pouch. The pouch template is the same as the leather key pouch I shared previously, I just altered the dimension of the fold, changed the position of the button stud and sewed up both sides.

Apply a small amount of the burnishing gum to the flesh side or edge of your leather spread evenly then firmly work into the leather with a smooth wooden dowel or piece of scrapper. I found that using fingers to apply the gum works too. Leather the edges with burnishing gum as well.

threadingthreadingThis is how I thread the nylon sewing thread. This method will help to prevent the short tail from coming off from the eye of the needle. It is optional and you may do the normal way of threading.
