New Fabric Coin Purses + Sale!

It’s been a while since I added some new fabric coin purses to my range, but now there are two new ones! The space designs are the most popular so I’ve added Planet Earth to the gang and Mt Fuji seemed like an obvious choice too.

These coin purses are all handmade by my mum. They’re small enough to fit in your handbag or pocket, with zips to keep everything safe inside.

Now that there are 14 different coin purses, it’s getting difficult to keep them all in stock and I’ve decided to cut things down to just the most popular designs – Planet, Sun, Ghost and Cookie + Earth & Fuji. I’m clearing out the rest with 25% off so go get one while you can! I’ve split them between my shop and Etsy, so if the character you want is sold out, check the other shop.

Of course, you can still sew up your own purse as all 14 characters are available as cut and sew fabric in my Spoonflower store for only $5 apiece.
