The combination of a zipper and a flap will make sure your coins never fall out! It's just perfect as your kid's lunch money pouch. And have I mentioned the little zipper tape-hiding tip?

Do you need something that would not take up much space, and something that would be simple - yet practical? This coin purse is especially handy for when you don't want to carry around a full-fledged wallet, and need something really small to tuck into your jacket pocket or even attach to your tote bag, for a quick everyday visit to a nearby grocery shop or bakery.

Use my coin purse pattern to make them in batches - keep them on hand for a quick hand made gift.

I designed this coin purse one with a main zipper compartment, a slip pocket  PLUS a flap, so you not only have two compartments, but also an added security from losing the coins. It also has a small loop for a key fob, keyring tab or a wristlet strap.

And after I figured out a little folding trick to hide all raw ends of the zipper tape, I decided this needs to be included into a pattern for you. So here are the main features:
