nggaaa â€¦ still canâ€™t find my notes â€¦ but hereâ€™s a preview of the coin purse tutorial i was blabbing about â€¦
itâ€™s about 7cm wide/tall â€¦ sewn from a thai fabric called â€ pa-ka-ma â€ ( or â€ pa-khao-ma â€ ) â€¦ people from the rural areas ( or maybe the older people in the city ) use this fabric as a sarong/belt/head wrap/hammock/babysling/ you-name-it â€¦
annnddd â€¦ iâ€™ve rewritten the tutorial â€¦ not very detailed â€¦here it goes :
Youâ€™ll need two piecess of fabric ( 37 cm x 9 cm ) . I cut a piece from the middle of the â€˜ pakama â€˜ fabric and one from the ends.
With the front sides facing each other , sew along the edges leaving a tiny gap ( about 1 cm ) in the middle on one of the short side and another on the side ( about 5 cm ). The second gap is where you flip the coin purse inside out.
After you flip the whole thing inside out , stuff it with some polyester filling. Push them in with a chopsitck( remember to push all four corners out ) . Donâ€™t over fill, or you wonâ€™t be able to bend the tube into place.
Fold one end up, this will be the outer pocket . Sew the sides up . I folded the end that have the 2nd gap , so i can just sew the gap and the pocket into place at one time.
Now fold the tube backwards, leaving about 1.5-2cm on top. Sew from the bend to where the outer pocket meets. This will be the inner pocket .
Hold the ends of a piece of cord together , thread the middle part thru a charm, loop it to keep it in place . Tie the open end of the cord up , push it into the tiny gap on top of the coin purse and sew the gap up .
Now put in some coins and wrap it up !
