Mic-O-Pear Metal Frame Coin Purse

pear shaped coin purse
After weeks of fine-tuning and sewing to improvise the 3-D pear purse I designed more than 2 years ago, I finally pear-fected it…. here comes….. the Mic-O-Pear coin purse. Why name it Mic-O-Pear? because it mimics the pear, lol 🙂

This pear purse has been in my to-do-list ever since I designed the pear fabric, just that I keep on procrastinating due to the overflown ideas and projects in hand. I am playing catching up lately… Sorry to keep you all waiting for the release of this pattern and tutorial. Finally, I am glad that I have got it done perfectly as the way I like.

In line with the design, I also created another pear purse, the Mod-O-Pear coin purse, tutorial and pattern to follow.

Here is the tutorial to sew a ball clasp metal frame coin purse of Mic-O-Pear….

  17. I was going through the pattern , when I noticed a small error .
    the seam allowance , under materials required is given as 7 cm .
    Its the same in the other post with Mod o pear.

    Lovely pattern and a great idea.

  24. Hi! I’m wondering where I can find the seam allowance tool that you use in the 3rd picture. It looks very handy and is a tool I would like to have. I have searched online and found some other tools but not one that is like this. Help?

  25. Hi I really love this little purse, and have plans to make several as my daughter in law would adore it. Trouble is I can’t download the tutorial, I have tried everything including good old fashioned copy and paste but nothing works….please help. Its a wonderful design and I think its amazing that you offer it for free, thank you for you generosity.
