Choose a worsted-weight yarn in your preferred color. Ensuring it pairs harmoniously with a crochet hook that matches the yarn weight for an optimal crafting experience. The recommended hook size is usually mentioned on the yarn label. This combination ensures that your stitches are even and the coin purse has the desired texture and flexibility.

Begin with a Magic Ring:

Crochet the Base:

Work single crochet stitches into the magic ring. Continue until you reach the desired diameter for the base of your coin purse. Remember to keep your stitches tight to create a sturdy foundation. Slip stitch to the first single crochet to close the round.

Build the Sides:

Chain one and start working single crochet stitches in the back loop only. This technique creates a defined texture and structure for your coin purse. Continue working in a spiral, without joining rounds, until the sides reach your preferred height. Regularly check the size against the zipper to ensure a snug fit.

Create the Coin Purse Flap:

Once the sides are of the desired height, begin shaping the coin purse flap. Start decreasing stitches at regular intervals to create a gentle slope. This ensures a neat and attractive closure for your purse. Adjust the flap length according to your preference.

Add a Zipper:

Make sure to sew the zipper securely onto the inside of the coin purse using a yarn needle. And matching yarn, ensuring a neat and functional finish. Ensure a secure attachment, allowing for smooth opening and closing.

Finally Prepared:

After crocheting, weave in loose ends and trim excess yarn. And check for adjustments to ensure the zipper aligns seamlessly with the opening of your coin purse. These final touches make it ready to use, showcasing your crafting skills and adding a stylish flair.
