I’ve always loved small vintage leather coin purses but they are very rare and difficult to find so I decided to figure out how to make one myself and now I will share my process with you! This little purse is adorable and so small (under 3 inches wide) you can wear it as a necklace. In addition to constructing the leather coin purse I will also show you a cool knotted and beaded cord technique to attach to the purse with a leather strap along with a bohemian dangle tassel to hang on your mini purse.

Supplies for students to bring:

~Jewelry pliers: round nose, chain nose and wire cutters

~Scissors for cutting fabric

~bead matt or cloth to lay your beads and findings

~clip board (used to make the knotted bead cord, otherwise, if you have a KDIA board bring that)

~any extra charms you would like to personalize it


Pre cut and sewn leather purse and straps, frame, preppednylon cord, 25-30 Czech Picasso 6mm beads (dusty turquoise or neutral color options), quality brass focal charms and vintage style chatelaine fob made in the USA, vintage charms, buttons and lace (will vary), ribbonclosures, 2 tulip filigree cord covers, crochet flower, antique doll arm, crystal, chain, jump rings, eyelet, wire, lobster clasp, rivet brads, charm holder.

I will have tools to share, several types of glues. Please contact me if you have any questions:

Thanks Robin
