Coin Purse sew along June - Week 1

Another sew along. This time round it's a small coin purse. I'm quite nervous as it involves a frame. I'm never good at tools and hardware. But, a challenge is good for me. so here goes: my materials bought from a local online seller which has become a good friend of mine: Edina's craft. I've got the pattern pieces, the frame, suitable thread, fabric for outer and lining, batting and of course hand sewing needle to sew the frame.

cut the fabric and batting according to the pattern given. As you noticed, the batting and stabilizer were smaller than the outer fabric. Iron them to the fabric of your choice.

fold into halves, pin them to ensure the edges match and stay that way when you sew.

Sewing time. I used 1/4 seam allowance.
Don't forget to leave at least 2" unstitch section on the lining piece.

Now, fold both sides of the sewn fabric to get a triangle at each corner.

measure about 2" from the end of the triangle and mark with a straight line. Do this for each corner. The lines will be your sewing guide. 

Sew each corner on the lines that you've marked earlier.

Cut away excess fabric. be careful not to cut the sewn lines.

For part 2, come back again next week for updates. This is not my tutorial. I just thought it's best to show you how i completed the pattern.
