So here I goanna show you how to sew a coin purse with clasp frame, just follow step by step!
In the previous post, I show you how to make your own pattern for this coin purse project. So after you make your pattern piece, let make a coin purse!
- Fabric glue/White glue
- Clasp frame
- Paper cord
- Fabric of your choice (outer piece)
- lining fabric (inner piece)
Step 1 :
Using your pattern, cut out 2 piece inner and outer fabric.
Step 2 :
Align your outer piece right side facing each other.
Step 3 :
Same to the inner piece, sew round the bottom arc shape.
*If you are using plain fabric for the inner piece, decide which side you wan to be the outside or can use any side.
Step 4 :
After done with sewing, turn over both pieces.
Slot in the inner piece, pin it in place sew and leave a hole on the top to turn over later on.
Step 6 :
Turn over and adjust the corner nicely. Top stitch the hole. You can use by hand or by machine. By hand will be nicer but this will be cover by the clasp so it won’t be seen.
Next we goanna attach the clasp to the fabric.
Step 7 :
Use the chopstick or stick and add glue to the clasp inner part, spread out the glue. (as picture shown)
Step 8 :
This part is quite challenging. Once you have your glue in, attach the clasp to the fabric. You have to adjust it until it stick to the glue, than use the small piece of paper cord to slot it in.
Use a plier to clip the clasp gently, to make it tight so that it can clip on the fabric.
I’m using this paper cord, it comes in a roll. You can also try look out for packet or small portion in your local crafts store. They also comes in different thickness. Do check out for the size. If you are doing small coin purse, get the thinner ones.
So here is how to sew a coin purse with clasp frame. Hope this post helps you in your project, but if you cannot get it or understand, don’t worry.. I will do up a tutorial video soon and will guide you thru step by step. Stay tune for my update on my YouTube channel!
