I don’t own a coin purse. My quarters go in one box to be used for laundry and all of my other coins get tossed from my purse into a container to eventually be sorted and turned into cash. But I have to confess that the many super cute crochet coin purses I’ve seen online in the last year or so really kind of make me want to carry a coin purse just to have a good excuse to crochet one! Want to see what I mean? Check out these 15 great crochet coin purses:

1. Pop Top Crochet Coin Purse

There is a photo-based tutorial on a Finnish crochet blog called [email protected] Koppa to make this cute crocheted pop top coin purse. Learn more about pop top crochet from my previous post on Brazilian pop top crochet.

2. Basic Crochet Coin Purse

Studio Wonjun shares lots of great photos of this basic, super cute, crochet coin purse

3. Ruffled Crochet Coin Purse

Handmade by Calista has a free tutorial for this ruffled crochet coin purse

4. No Frame Crochet Coin Purse

Most of the crochet coin purses that I like are built around a little purse frame. This example by TomatoTea shows that you don’t have to have a frame to have a cute purse, though. It’s fabric-lined and decorated with a cute button.

5. Rainbow Crochet Coin Purse

This is another example of a no-frame, fabric-lined crochet coin purse. There is a free tutorial for this rainbow circle design at SparklePetal.

6. Striped Crochet Coin Purse

The crochet pattern for this striped coin purse is available through Ravelry. It’s also sold as a kit.

7. Owl Crochet Coin Purse

How can you not love this super cute owl crochet coin purse? And it’s offered as a free pattern download from A La Sascha.

8. Beaded Crochet Coin Purse

I spotted this one on Ravelry although the pattern is not available. It’s designed by Naoko Shimodo and was crafted by Cosava.

9. Lined Crochet Coin Purse

This crochet coin purse is fabric lined and on a frame. The free pattern is over on Token’s Hooky Love blog. The pattern uses post stitches to get some great texture.

10. Floral Crochet Coin Purse

I love the little flower design on this crochet coin purse. The free pattern is available from Liberty Crochet.

11. Silver Crochet Coin Purse

Etsy’s lukesmom6 says, “This adorable little coin purse is made with shimmery silver yarn and beautiful Czech glass beads.”

12. Crochet Coin Purse Necklace

I love the design on this crochet coin purse by Etsy’s Craftelina, which is designed to be worn around the neck.

13. Bobbles and Beads Coin Purse

I am always a fan of the bobble stitch and it really works for this coin purse that’s combined with beads and a great heart-adorned purse frame. It’s by Etsy’s DesignedForGirls, a shop that also has several other crocheted coin purses.

14. Big Bead Crochet Purse

I adore the classy jeweled look of the big beads on this bead crochet coin purse by Etsy’s TheEclecticDiva.

15. Bow Coin Purse

I’m a sucker for a cute crochet bow so of course I adore this coin purse by Etsy’s carmenatelier, which comes in blue, pink and green bows.

Do you carry a coin purse? Is it crocheted?
