Pattern Description:

These sweet little coin purses are sure to delight both their knitter and anyone who happens to get their happy little hands on them. The pattern includes instructions for both the Star Stitch Purse and the pretty Bramble Stitch Purse.

This is a fun little instant gratification project. They are teeny and fast to knit with just enough pattern to keep them interesting. Great for a sweet little gift. Super cute in solid wool or self striping and ombre wools. You will need to purchase a teeny purse frame to complete the project. Most fabric/crafting stores sell them and you can also find them on many notions retailers online.

If you are having trouble finding the metal clasps, here is a link to an online shop that sells the purse clasp that I used in my projects:
