The pattern for theses purses can be found here
Once both purse bodies are complete, sew them to the purse frame as follows:
With right sides facing out, slide the purse body into the frame and center the flower.
Thread needle with last color used, attach the yarn to the underside of the flower, close to the purse frame, insert the needle from back to front and begin sewing the purse body to the frame.
Note: The purse body may slide while sewing it to the frame, so make sure to hold it tight.
Once the purse body is sewn in, it should look like this on the inside:
Sew the second purse body to the frame in the same manner, with right sides facing out. The wrong sides will be facing together.
A reverse sc edging will be worked along the bottom of the purse to join the purse bodies together. Reverse sc sts are worked in the opposite direction to single crochets, from left to right.
With the bottom of the purse facing up, insert hook (on the left side of the purse frame) into the 1st
sc of each purse body.
Work the reverse sc stitch around the entire bottom edge of the purse, making sure to go through the sc stitches of both purse bodies. Once you reach the other side, end off and weave in ends.
This will make a nice edging and close the purse at the same time.
Note: Additional yarn colors that were used in the coin purses below: #3674 shrimp, #3671 azure and #3673 lavender.
I hope you enjoy these coin purses!
