I was fascinated by the cute coin purse that was hanging around in the blog land and on pinterest.
But i couldn’t find the purse frame that is used to make this purse in our local stores.
During my last visit to Craft land Dubai, i picked up one frame ,just to try how it works…
…and here is the cute thing…..
I couldn’t find a perfect tutorial for this project, but it was easy to make from all the picture clues…
I will try and tell you with few pictures, how i made it .
The number of crochet stitches vary according to the size of the frame.
so you have to find the number of stitches you need for your frame.
Here is how I did…
This pattern goes in round so please use stitch markers
Round 1 : Make a magic ring with 6 Sc.
Round 2: 2 sc on each sc of last round ( 12 Sc)
Round 3: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc on next and complete that round (18 Sc)
Round 4: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc each on next 2 sc and complete the round (24Sc)
Round 5: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc each on next 3 sc and complete the round (30 Sc)
Round6: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc each on next 4 sc and complete the round (36 Sc)
Round 7: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc each on next 5 sc and complete the round (42 Sc)
Round 8: 2 Sc on first sc, 1 Sc each on next 6 sc and complete the round (48 Sc)
Check your crochet piece with the size of your frame
If you need a bigger size, go on increasing few more rounds with 54 Sc or 60 Sc until you reach the desired size for your frame.
If you feel that this is the perfect size for your frame, then stop increasing the stitches.
Round 9 : Sc on each Sc, make sure you are using stitch marker, so that you will not miss the number of rounds you took.
I took 16 rounds of 48 Sc each to get the desired size for my purse.
Before you fix this crochet piece to your frame, make a fabric or felt lining for this..
Make a template out of this crochet piece and cut 2 pieces from your favorite fabric or felt..
Keep the right sides together and sew it with 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Ok…keep that lining piece aside…and now we work with the frame and the crochet piece.
Sew the crochet piece to the frame with the same yarn..
(I have seen online, frames without this sewing holes, in that case you need super glue and need to fix it…
and that you will have to do after attaching the lining)
After fixing the crochet piece to the frame, now it is the time to hand sew the lining piece…
Insert the lining piece with wrong side facing the crochet piece, with a 1/4 inch fold at the top like in the picture…
Do a blind hem and fix it to the crochet…
That’s it…your cute purse is ready to hold your coins…
Here is the cute crochet coin purse….
Now i regret that i didn’t pick more frames.
I want to try this with other crochet motifs and want to try a similar quilted purse too.
Hope I can find this frame next time i go there…
Thank you so much for stopping by…
Until next time..
Have a nice day…nima
