Linen Stitch Coin Purse
Linen Stitch Coin Purse by Mimi Codd
Knitting
4 inch purse frame
Needles & yarn
US 3 - 3.25 mm
Hand Maiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk
0.25 skeins = 109.3 yards (99.9 meters), 25 grams
Notes

Purchased frame from Sugar Carousel on Etsy

Used 16 grams of leftover Sea Silk.
Work measures 4.625” wide before finishing. It’s a bit too big; I’ll make the next one narrower by 4 stitches.

I did my seams on the sewing machine but next time I’ll hand stitch.

White super tacky craft glue (the kind that dries clear) secured the knitted fabric inside the channels of the purse frame and then, after letting it dry for a couple of days, I stitched through the holes on the purse frame with sewing thread and a small sewing needle. Nail polish remover (with acetone) cleaned up the excess glue on the metal.
