Little girls may enjoy making and flaunting handmade coin purses. The charming crafts make thoughtful gift items and birthday party favours. Kids can design one-of-a-kind purses using anything from recycled household items to felt and leftover fabric. To give the purses a decorative look, supply kids with eye-catching craft items like beads and buttons.

Juice Pouch Purse

You can recycle an empty foil juice pouch into a usable coin purse. Cut a juice pouch across the bottom using a craft knife and wash and dry the inside. To create the purse, sew across the top and then the bottom of the pouch using zigzag stitches. Turn the pouch over and apply one square of self-adhesive Velcro at the top and one square at the bottom. Fold the pouch in half, logo-side out, and sew along the sides, leaving the top portion open to form the coin purse.

Pocket Purse

Transform old denim pockets into a usable coin purse. The whimsical purse is created by sewing two pockets together along their seams. You can use fabric glue instead. To make a shoulder strap, sew a long, wide ribbon to both sides of the pockets. Kids can make the purses their own by decorating the outsides with iron-on decals, flat-backed gems, buttons and fabric paint. Attach snaps or Velcro to the inside of the purse to secure it closed.

Fabric Purse

Use sturdy cotton fabric scraps or faux fur to create crafty coin purses. To make the simple craft, cut two equal-size rectangular pieces of materials and sew them together along three edges, leaving the top portion open. Sew a button to one side of the opening and make a slit in the other side so you can slide the button through. Sew a piece of ribbon or cord to the top of the purse to create a shoulder strap or leave it as is.

Plastic Purse

Design a vibrant coin purse using a colourful plastic envelope featuring a Velcro enclosure, which you can purchase at an office supply store. Open the envelope and use a hole punch to create holes near the top of each side. Slip the ends of a ribbon through each hole and secure them with knots to create the strap. A child can put the finishing touches on the purse using stickers.
