Another cute animal character coin purse has just added to the pattern and tutorial library!!! It has come a long way, please welcome Annette, the Hedgehog Coin Purse, named after my sister’s pet hedgehog.
After 5 years of tottering up and down in my to-do-list, finally I have designed and sewed a new version of the hedgehog purse that I am absolutely pleased with. Not only that the pattern is more adorable, it also comes with the choice of zipper and gamaguchi kisslock metal frame purse closure, in addition, the hedgehog comes in 2 poses; roll-up and standing. You can choose which combination you want to sew for your hedgehog coin purse.
The size of the hedgehog coin purse is approximately 5″ (W) x 4 1/2″ (H) x 2 1/2″ (D). Beyond just use it as coin purse for you to put some loose change and keys, you may also use it as a small cosmetic pouch to keep your lipstick, mascara, blusher, eye shadows and a pack of facial tissues too.
I have been wanting to add hedgehog pattern into Craft Passion since 5 years ago, right after I sewed a pair of this version and received some response asking for pattern. Sorry to keep you waiting for so long, it is not that I don’t want to develop the tutorial for the first version, the way I sewed was difficult to handle; especially the spikes, as they get into the way when seaming the front and back parts. Before I came out with this design, I have sewed another few but none of them is as perfect as this. Now, I am totally in love with this hedgehog coin purse pattern, way easier to sew though it involves some hand sewing but trust me, it won’t hurt 🙂
Added a metal chain strap to the gamaguchi hedgehog coin purse, perfect for an evening night out for the girl. If you want to transform the zipper hedgehog coin purse to strap purse, just add 2 fabric loops at the zipper ends and hook a strap onto them.
Hope to see you sewing the Annette, the hedgehog coin purse soon.
