Sewing Tutorial: Kitty Coin Purse

I made this kitty purse for my absent minded daughter who always lost or misplace her belongings. The size is just nice to keep some coins and small notes that she can put it in her school uniform’s pocket. The dimension is 8.5cm (W) x 8cm (H) [3 1/4″ x 3″].

Like mother like daughter, I was an absent-minded kid myself too (looks like she inherited my bad gene, lol). Well, she lost the crochet purse I borrowed her. She knew that she is in big trouble since I love that purse a lot (she begged me a few times before I agreed to borrow her while waiting for her new purse). That purse was a master piece which I am going to write the pattern out and share it here one day. I had a mixed feeling when she told me that she has lost it at school. Sad that the purse is lost, happy that she expressed regrets about her carelessness  and will try to be careful next time. With the blessing of God, she found it back from the school’s lost and found department! I am happy, not because that the purse is recovered but my daughter has learned to become a more responsible person! This incident has accelerated the process of getting this kitty coin purse done. I made 3 different colors, 1 for her and 2 for spare, just in case she lost it again lol…. {browse through the photos above to see the other 2}

Originally, this kitty was not the one in my mind, I wanted a tiger but it came out too cute, so… I ended up having kitty instead!!! Why tiger? The upcoming Chinese New Year is a Tiger Year :) Am trying one out now, hope I can make it looks more fierce!!! [Update: the Tiger Coin Purse free pattern is out for grab :)]

Well, let’s go to the tutorial of how to sew the Kitty Coin Purse!
