A while back I had posted about my Purse I'd made from custom fabric I designed http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404611.0 .  Since I had swatches and extra fabric laying around, I decided to make a few coin purses and clutch wallets for my tiny Etsy shop.  I need another source of income to pay for my costuming habit lol.  The Coin Purse pattern was drafted by me as I went.  It started out as a 4"x4" square with the top corners rounded off.  The zipper opens about 6", going 3/4 way around the purse to allow easy removal/addition of loose change or odds and ends.  There is a little loop for keys or what ever you want.  It coordinates really well with my purse and my own wallet.  I'm so tempted to keep one for myself, but I only had fabric for two.  Surprisingly, the little coin purses took about as long to make as the wallets because of the rounded corners with the zipper.

They look so smart and professional that you have to look carefully to see they're so geeky!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Very nice fabric and workmanship!  I like the shape of the little coin purse.

Thanks :-D  I designed the fabric to blend into the other styles of logos out there but still have enough geeky symbols on it, that a true fan would notice.  I have two purses I love, but they scream out Star Wars and have photos from the movies and art on them.  They're great, but when I need something a little subdued, there just wasn't anything - so I made it!
The coin purse shape was completely on the fly.  I knew it had to have a zipper, because I hate loose change rolling around my purse that fell out of my wallet.  That meant it had to open wider too, so it had to zip 3/4 way around.  I've ordered a cotton sateen fat quarter in brown/gold (like Louis Vuitton) to play with because I had a request for that color scheme.  I think I may make another purse from it with a long skinny strap for my Etsy shop.  I'm also working on other sci-fi theme ideas.  I don't want to order fabric until I see how well these do though.
