Try This: Leather Heart Coin Purse

Leather Heart Coin Purse Tutorial
Try This: Leather Heart Coin Purse

Is it too early for hearts?  Spoiler alert: The answer is a decided no.  It is never too early...or late...for hearts.  And this is the perfect heart project because it only takes about 5 minutes.

Read on for the easy step-by-step.


Leather Heart Coin Purse Tutorial
MATERIALS: 2 Leather Hearts*, Button Stud Closure, Glue, Hole Punch, Craft Knife

*I picked up my pre-cut red leather hearts on my recent trip to Tokyo.  You can buy your own, un-dyed pre-cut hearts online, or easily cut out your own from craft leather. I found several, affordable pieces of red leather remnants from Etsy sellers like this one.  If you do cut your own, my hearts are each about 3" tall. 

Leather Heart Coin Purse Tutorial
ONE: On the back of each heart, apply a small amount of glue along the perimeter leaving an opening about 2" long unglued.  As shown, the glue should be applied as mirror images of one another since you're going to sandwich them together.

TWO: Stick the hearts together, and punch a hole through both hearts in the middle of the unglued opening.

THREE: On the front heart, use a craft knife or box cutter to cut a small slit below the hole.

FOUR: Screw the button stud closure on through the hole in the back heart.  Enjoy!

    1. Have you tried Etsy? Lots of supply sellers on Etsy offer fabric samples and remnants for really cheap prices. Local craft stores also offer craft leather (usually about 8x11 or smaller) in limited colors like browns and black.

    2. Old leather jackets, purses, etc. If you don't have some check out a thrift or resell shops - often great buys there. Always keep your leftover pieces for future leather projects.

    3. I am going to try this with upcycled inner tube rubber: you can get it free from most bike shops (they end up with buckets of leaky inner tubes to be trashed.) Most leather crafts can be tweaked to work with this awesome eco-friendly free medium. I'm bloging about my experiments at whitelightwhiteheatdesign.com

  4. Using a metal or favourite sturdy button would look nice too! Use 2-buttons: a decorative shank for going through the slit and a flat sew through for the back of the heart to anchor the shank button too.

    1. That's a great idea since it seems these little button studs can be hard to come by.
