Penguin Coin Pouch


Let this cute feathered friend keep watch over your spare change (or even your earphones). We used leather, but you can also make it with leather or felt-- change the colors to create your own breeds!



Penguin Coin Pouch

What you need

PDF pattern download below.
Leather in black, white and orange
Zipper (at least 12cm in length)
Multipurpose adhesive such as UHU



Instructions

Start by printing the PDF pattern first.

002

Trace the pieces on the pattern onto the leather, and cut them out.

003

On one of the body pieces, carefully cut out the long rectangle for the zipper. This will be the back piece of your pouch.

004

Position the zipper underneath the rectangle cutout, and dab a bit of adhesive to hold the leather to the zipper in place.

005

Sew all around the zipper with black thread.

006

 

Carefully trim off the ends of the zipper that go beyond the penguin’s body.

007

Stick the eyes and beak to the white piece of the face.

Optional: Stitch them on carefully by hand or with the sewing machine.

008

Next, place the white body and face pieces onto the remaining black body piece. Dab some adhesive to hold it in place.

009

Top stitch all around the white pieces.

010

Sandwich the 2 body pieces together, dabbing a bit of adhesive at the edges  to hold them together.

011

Top stitch all around the edges with black thread.

012

Trim any excess from the edges, and you’re done!

013

Keep coins or little knick knacks in your very own penguin pouch.

014

All done. If you make one yourself – let us know!
