Keep your pennies in one place with a cute handmade zipper pouch!

Coins are always falling out of Tom's pockets and I find them all over the house, so I decided to make him a coin pouch for them with his favourite animal on!




  1. Step 1 1

    Print out the template and cut two bear heads from tweed, two bear heads from fleece, one white mouth, two white ear inners and a little pink felt nose.

  2. Step 2 2

    Position the bear's face so that he looks cute.

  3. Step 3 3

    Stitch the bear's mouth in place.

  4. Step 4 4

    Stitch the ear inners and nose in place too.

  5. Step 5 5

    Lay the fleece pieces on top of the tweed pieces and pin in place.

  6. Step 6 6

    Stitch the two pieces together, removing the pins as you go.

  7. Step 7 7

    Pierce two holes where you'd like the eyes to go and slip them in place.

  8. Step 8 8

    Your bear should now look like this.

  9. Step 9 9

    Pin the edge of the zip to the bottom of the bear like this, with the zip upside down.

  10. Step 10 10

    Stitch along the edge.

  11. Step 11 11

    Pin the other edge of the zip to the back of the pouch like this, making sure that both sides match up and stitch in place.

  12. Step 12 12

    Unzip the zip a little.

  13. Step 13 13

    Lay the two bear heads on top of each other, so that the wrong sides are facing out. Pin around the edges and cut off the excess edges from the zip.

  14. Step 14 14

    Sew around the outside of the pouch.

  15. Step 15 15

    Fold your pouch inside out.

  16. Step 16 16

    Thread a needle with some black embroidery thread.

  17. Step 17 17

    Stitch on the bear's mouth.

  18. Step 18 18

    Fill with coins and you're all done!
