I’m calling it my summer shades coin pouch.
When my coin pouch died a few weeks back I went into my online pattern files and Pinterest to get some ideas. Then I remembered bookmarking this post by KOKKA. A free downloadable pattern of the cutest little pouch. Just what I was looking for!
This pattern is called “a round pouch”. Finished size measures approx. 10cm x 14cm x 8cm. Perfect for bills and coins. The pattern which is typically called a *recipe* is available to download free at the bottom of the post.
My pictures may make it hard to tell the true size but this is tiny pouch! The pattern had two tabs on each end of the zipper to handle, but I left out one and added a 2″ round keyring for convenience.
The pattern has only a few pattern pieces and I was able to sew it up in under an hour. I used Pellon Sf101 for the interior interfacing and used Soft & Stable for the exterior interfacing. The pattern calls for just a fusible interfacing, but I think you could use most any combo of interfacing and achieve a great look.
