RIVET CHANGE PURSE
~ This is an "Abbreviated Pattern" ~
It does not include detailed step-by-step instruction or images. (It does include a construction summary.) If you know how to sew on a zipper, turn a pouch through a lining, and install rivets, this one's breeze!
This precious little change purse is a simple, fast and easy sew. The pattern provides pieces, templates, visual diagrams, and a one-page Reference Companion with what you need to know — all at-a-glance on one page! The convenient rivet placement template makes layout easy. There are no corners to box. Instead the corners have a slight rounding for a refined finish. This purse is a great companion to a larger bag, and is also perfect for times when you need a quick gift.
The level would be considered advanced-beginner if it were not an abbreviated pattern.
- 1-Page Reference Companion (key info to sew it up)
- 5 Pieces (plus 2 provisional pieces)
- 3 Rivet placement templates (for use with 6mm, 7mm and 8mm rivets)
- 1 corner rounding template for exterior seam stitching
The purse was designed to be sewn using a non-woven such as vinyl or leather, but a quilting cotton can also be used if properly stabilized. The lining uses quilting cotton interfaced with a fusible woven; or you can use a waterproof canvas if preferred.
- Main Exterior Front and Back: 15" x 10"
- Front Exterior Accent: 3" x 5"
- Lining: 15" x 10"
- Fusible Woven Interfacing (e.g. Pellon SF101) for the lning.
(You'll need more if using cotton for the exterior)
- 7-Inch Zipper: #3, #4.5 or #5 - your choice. (Trimmed to size later)
- 8 Rivets: 6mm recommended, but up to 8mm can be used.
