The gift that keeps on giving -- my old sweater yields some cute coin purses!

I just can't keep my hands off that old sweater of mine!  The scraps left after making 3 messenger bags were only big enough for these cute coin purses.  Just big enough to hold credit cards, gift cards, or some change, these would be the perfect little extra for your purse.

I lined these in the same pretty floral as the messenger bags.  Making them was straight-forward except for having to turn the purse right side out after sewing.  Closing that open edge by hand was tricky but top stitching covered up any unevenness in the seam.
