Besides sewing DiDi as a coin purse, you may tweak the sewing instruction a little and sew it into a Key Pouch to keep your keys cozily in it, so that the keys don’t scratch the lining of your purse or tangle up with loose corded items in your purse. Make a pair of them as twin Didi Deer Coin Purse and Key Pouch, great as a handmade gift for friends and family.

Materials

Tools

  • Sewing machine, with normal
  • Sewing needle, pins, matching threads
  • Scissors
  • Water Erasable fabric marker, for light color fabric
  • Tweezers, blunt point tips, for turning small part inside out
  • Fabric glue, or Quick-dry adhesive (UHU)
  • Printer, 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock paper for the template and papers

Instructions

  1. Gather all supplies listed above and download the DiDi Deer Coin Purse Template. Print the templates on cardstock paper and cut them out accordingly.deer template
  2. Cut out the fabric and batting pieces according to the quantity stated on each of the templates. The fabrics and battings have to be at least 1/2″ bigger (1/4″ on each side) than the template in width and length respectively.
    For making an open pocket at the back of the coin purse, provision of 3/4″ seam allowance at the top of the back pocket is needed. This is for double folding of the raw edge at the top of the open pocket.
    Trace the outline of the template on the wrong side of the fabric accordingly.deer 1
  3. Sew an open pocket at the back of the deer coin purse:
    Double-fold the top edge of the open pocket and double topstitch with 1/4″ apart.deer 2

    Place the pocket template on the back-piece of the purse. Match the pocket into the traced outline of the back piece. Mark the pocket's position.
    Place the fabric pocket piece onto the back piece. Align the top edge to the marking line that you have just made.
    Make a few stitches on the seam allowance to secure the pocket in place.deer 3
  4. Sew coin purse back piece:
    Place batting on the table, followed by a piece of purse body fabric with the right side facing up. Then place the pocket purse piece on it with the right side facing down. Pin all 3 pieces together (batting and 2 purse fabric pieces).
    Sew around and leave an opening at the side of the purse but avoid the pocket area.deer 4

    Trim fabric seam allowance to 1/4″.
    Trim the seam allowance of the batting to 1/8″ or as near to the sewing line.
    Set aside.deer 5
  5. Sew coin purse front, ears, and muzzle pieces:
    Sew each of them a similar way as the back piece, i.e with 1 batting and 2 fabric pieces.
    For the muzzle, instead of leaving an opening on the seam, make a one-inch slit on a layer of fabric of the muzzle for turning inside out.
    Trim fabric seam allowance to 1/4″.
    Trim the seam allowance of the batting to 1/8″ or as near to the sewing line.
    Cut out the eye-piece, the antlers, and the nose from felt.deer 6

    Make a one-inch slit on a layer of fabric of the muzzle for turning inside out.deer 7
  6. Turn pieces inside out and hand stitch to close the opening with a slip stitch or ladder stitch.
    Press with a warm iron to smooth out the pieces if needed.deer 8
  7. Sew DiDi Deer face on the front piece:
    Mark the position of the antler, face, and ears patterns on the purse that doesn’t have a pocket on it. You may mark by eyeballing position, trace the shape with an erasable fabric marker.
    Sew them around with matching color thread.deer 9

    Mark the position of the muzzle, eyes, nose, and mouth on the purse. Sew around the muzzle with a slip stitch. Sew the button eyes and nose then glue the mouth.deer 10
  8. Sew to join front and back pieces:
    Place both front and back purse pieces together with inside together. Sew them together with a slip stitch, from zipper marking to another zipper marking. This will leave the top edge with a 4 inch opening for the zipper installation.deer 11
  9. Sew Zipper:
    Unzip the zipper. Position and align one of the zipper tape's center to the center of the purse opening.
    Pin the zipper tape to the purse along the edge, with the zipper teeth about 1/8″ away from the purse edge. The top and bottom stops of the zipper should meet at the zipper markings on the purse respectively.
    Hand-sew with slip stitch to attach the zipper to the purse starting from one end to the other.deer 12

    Repeat the same to the other side of the zipper tape. Make sure the center of the purse is aligned after zipping up.deer 13

    Neaten the zipper tape by rolling the edge into the zipper and slip stitch it.deer 14

    This is how the zipper tape looks after completed.deer 15

Spray some water to erase all the markings if you using a water-soluble fabric marker. Leave it to dry and the DiDi Deer Coin Purse is done.deer 17
