I used double strands of acrylic yarn for the body and single strand of the mercerized cotton yarn when crocheting the trim of this purse. This is a very easy pattern! Make lots of these tiny cute purses in different color combinations. Great as last minute gifts, party favors, for charity fund-raising and for selling at craft fairs :) This purse can be used to keep coins and other small items like jewelleries, gemstones, marbles, thumbdrive, medications, notes, buttons, miniatures, candies, etc or put some potpourri inside and throw them into drawers, cupboards, cars, etc... for that sweet scent or fragrance. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, crocheting in the rounds GAUGE Size of finished items depend on crocheting tension, crochet hook size and type/thickness of yarn used. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The coin purse measures approximately 3 inches/7.62cm across its top edge and 2.25 inches/5.72cm in height.
