  • I love this adorable Heart Coin Purse! I can’t wait to make it for gifts and one for myself. I also think that the step by step instructions are easy to follow and very easy to understand.

  • I think this is a gorgeous project but wonder if it would benefit from some stiffer as when it has coins or whatever inside with will not be rigid enough.

  • Hmm–I’m in the middle of this project, making 4 of them for friends for Christmas. I’ve watched the video a couple of times and cannot find anywhere that states the seam allowance?? The original basting was for 1/2″ –is that also what should be used for the final stitching??
    One suggestion: when making the small tab for the key hook, instead of making a tube to turn, I cut a piece 4X wider than what I wanted for the finished, tab, folded it in half to create a crease. Then folded in the 2 long sides towards the crease just so they meet. Then fold again on the crease and stitch close to the open edge. No need to turn!

    • Hello flxigrl, you are right, the seam allowance isn’t mentioned in the video! Yes, it does look like the seam allowance for stitching the heart together is 1/2″. Great tip about making the tab!
