Mod-O-Pear Ball Clasp Coin Purse

pear shaped purse pattern
This pear shaped gamaguchi purse is another version of Mic-O-Pear coin purse I published a few days ago. Adapting the frame’s vintage mama-look, I created this pear purse in a mod style, thus, named it Mod-O-Pear. The sewing method is a little different from Mic-O-Pear but installation of the purse gamaguchi frame is the same.

Ball clasp frame purse or gamaguchi frame purse is popular during the 60’s and 70’s, it was a must-have for a girl to own a gamaguchi frame purse. I still remember my mum have at least 2 and she still used it when we were a little older. Sentimental value that counts or perhaps it is so easy and convenient to open and close with just a 2-finger twist and pinch!

  18. Hello, can I hand sew instead ? I do not have a sewing machine.

  19. Where can you buy quality metal coin purse closures, please? The ones I have found online look shoddy. I have a 25 year old coin purse whose closure is still in great shape with regular use (the outside fabric is fine but the liner needs replaced) and I would like to make some for gifts and would like them to have a closure that will look nice and hold up well (your coin purse is delightfully whimsical and pretty!) Thanks in advance!
