I’m excited to share a brand new sewing pattern with you today, the Tutti Fruity Penny Pincher coin pouches! (That’s pretty fun to say) Each fruit shaped felt purse has an easy-to-install flex-frame closure that pops open when you give the sides a squeeze.

The pattern includes all 3 shapes, each with a touch of embroidery. There’s also a grosgrain ribbon side tab with a ring to hook on to your key fob or wristlet strap. Introducing…

Each pouch is fully lined and takes just a squeeze to make the flex-frame open.  Seriously, these are super fun and fast to make! You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop!



If you’re unfamiliar with them, flex frames are super easy to install, no tools needed. I’ve added sets of 3 frames + 3 rings to my Etsy shop for your crafting convenience!



And if you’re looking for wool-blend felt in the colors I’ve used, I’ve got Felt Packs for sale too!

Penny Pinchers are great to make as gifts for friends, Easter baskets, Mother’s Day, you name it. Tuck a gift card inside for the local smoothie shop, too, why don’t ya?
