Crochet Coin Purse With Kisslock Frame

Posted on Last updated: /

Finally, after sharing the previous raffia coin purse pattern, I have come out with another pattern to crochet a beautiful kisslock coin purse that uses a round arch metal purse frame.

It is so easy to crochet, even a beginner can do it with just a little experience in crochet. However, you will need some hands-on practice in sewing up a kisslock frame, alternately, you may use the no-sew kisslock frame which I find that it could be easier in the installation process. Since I do not have the no-sew frame, I did it with my all-time favorite sew-in kisslock frame and they came out perfectly to my expectation.

This palm-size cute little kisslock coin purse measures about 3.5″ x 2.5″ x 3.5″ tall, just the right size to keep loose change and coins. Unlike fabric kisslock coin purse, due to the construction of the coin purse and the characteristic of raffia yarn, this kisslock coin purse holds it’s shaped nicely without any supplementary support from batting or interfacing. It is lightweight with only 1.4 oz (40 gram) to carry around. A roll of raffia yarn (Raffia With Passion) can make up to 10 pieces of them. Or, you may use the leftover yarn to whip them up in multi colors, just like what I have done.

More Details on how to crochet the Kisslock Coin Purse

klr coin purse 1

By using a crochet hook size of 3.5mm, follow the pattern to crochet the circle base for the coin purse with “Raffia With Passion” yarn.

If your tension is correct, you should have a circle slightly smaller than the round kisslock frame after round 6. Otherwise, adjust the pattern a little by adding or reducing the number of rounds to get a similar size.

Proceed to crochet the upright side of the coin purse until it completes round 23 or until it is about 2.75″ tall.
Set iron on medium heat. Block the coin purse by pressing it against a ball of socks (insert into the purse). If you are using other brands of raffia yarn, test with an iron on a small part inside the purse.

When you place the round kisslock frame on it, it is sitting nicely on the edge.

The lining is optional but it will make the kisslock coin purse more skilfully done.
This is the measurement of my lining after deducted about 0.25″ from the actual measurement of the coin purse, i.e.2.75″ becomes 2.5″ for both base diameter and height. As for the width of the rectangle piece of lining, just need to do some maths to get the circumference of the base, i.e., circumference = π x diameter, which is  3.14 x 2.5″ = 7.85 which is about 8″ in proximity.

First, seam up the sides of the rectangle piece, followed by joining up with the base. Lastly, fold down the top edge and topstitch it in place.

Insert the lining into the raffia coin purse, hand-stitch the top edges together.
Make a few stitches at the base of the purse to secure the lining in place so that it will not accidentally pulling out when you take out the coins.

Temporarily secure the joints of the kisslock frame to the purse by making a few stitches through the hole and knot it. Repeat the same to the other side.
Insert the purse edges into the channel of the frame. It is ok to squeeze the fabric a little in order to slot them into the channel if the purse is a little larger than the frame.
Stitch the frame to the purse body via those little holes on the frame with strong thread.

Sew from inside through the first hole, leave a long tail of about 4″ (reserve for thread hiding in a later stage).
Sew from outside via the second hole, pull snugly.
Sew from inside via the same hole but move your stitch a little away from where it came out from.
This sewing method will give a nice tiny stitching marks on the lining side of the purse.
Repeat this stitching method until you finish one side of the frame. Make sure the purse edge is pushed into the channel all the time during sewing.
Tie a knot. Hide the tail and the knot by sewing them into the space between the lining and coin purse. Repeat the same to the tail at the beginning of the sewing.

klr coin purse 10

Repeat the sewing to the other side of the frame to attach the coin purse to the kisslock frame.
Remove the temporary stitches at the side of the frame.
Pinch the sides of the coin purse with fingers and close the kisslock.

I didn't measure the yarn, but with a roll of 250m raffia yarn, I think I can easily whip up 10 of them. Hence, it is estimated to average about 25 meters of yarn for each.
