After making my first coin pursewith the twine-stuffing technique, I wasn’t convinced about the sturdiness of the glue. I always believe in stitches over glue. The clasp of this coin purse has holes for stitching the pouch opening to it, and I like it much better even though it took 10 times more work.
I have no idea how people can make coin purses and sell them for $10. This literally took me a whole day to make. I know I’m slow, and I’m paranoid with stitches unravelling so I backstitched everything by hand and stitched each little hole on the clasp 5 times. It took forever and my eyes were going funny. If I had to sell craft for a living, I’m going to starve. No joke!
