Make a Mini Back Pack Coin Purse and Key Chain

Hello and welcome!  This is where I originally shared a tutorial to make a cute mini back pack coin purse.  Unfortunately, continuing troubles accessing the PDF link to the pattern pieces occurred for many of those interested in sewing one.
 
To serve you better, this tutorial has just re-formatted as a PDF pattern.  Revisions will be completed by July 9th, 2013. Done!
 
The pattern is now available on
 
 You will need a membership (which is free) to be able to download my pattern.

 I appreciate your understanding and your patience!   I hope you will enjoy the new format.
 
Thanks,
Katherine

    I tried to download the PDF, but (maybe it’s my mac) I see the page on my screen but there’s no possibility to download or print.

  17. I love the mini backpack coin purse, but I'm not sure what size it is. the pattern seems a bit small, should i take it to staples and enlarge it? Is it the actual size that prints out.

    Thanks for your help.

  18. Hello, Cassandra.

    The pattern is small, but it's at the size intended, so no need for enlargements.

    The height measurement given on the pattern should be the size you get when you print it.

    Print the pattern, then measure the height with your ruler, to make sure it's printing to the size given (3 3/8"). If not, check your print settings to make sure it isn't set to scale things down.

    Hope that helps.

    Happy sewing!
    Katherine
