Crochet Tutorial : Beaded Coin Purse

posted in: DIY | 0

In this Crochet Tutorial Video, you can find out how to make a Beaded Crochet Coin Purse with a sew-on clasp frame. This project requires basic Crochet skills such as knowing and being able to do a magic circle, and a single crochet.

To create this beaded crochet coin purse, you must single crochet on the round, beginning with a magic circle and 8 single crochet. The circle must increase by 8 stitches per row for 6 rounds until it reaches a total of 56 stitches. This six round circle will be the bottom of the coin purse.

To keep your circle round and avoid having and hexagonal bottom, start a round with an increase only when the previous round ended with an increase. An increase is when we place 2 crochet (in this case 2 single) in one Stitch.  In the same sense start a round with one single crochet in one stitch only if the previous round ended this way. So your increases will not align forming corners.

From the 7th row and on the circle will stop increasing and it will progress with one single crochet in each stitch for 20 rounds. Each single crochet placed in the base and 20 rounds of the perimeter, will have a bead attached to the back side. In the 21st round, the project will end with a Beadles raw of 56 plain single crochet.

Materials & Tools

– Brown Cotton Pearl  Crochet Thread No 5

– Sew on Clasp Frame  8.5cm (Diameter)

– Brown frosted Glass Wheel Beads  ( 3mm)

– Steel  Crochet  Hook No 1.6mm (US  No 6)

– Jewelry Wire 9cm (28gauge)

– Embroidery Needle

– Scissors

To incorporate beads to crochet, slide a bead down towards the hook, near your active loop, pull a loop and yarn over. The bead will be secured to the back of the stitch. At the end of the project, you will turn it inside out and bring the beads to the outside of the coin purse.

All the beads must be threaded before you begin your project. If you have difficulty sliding your beads on the thread it is important to leave spaces of 20-30cm after every 20-30 beads, while threading them. This will make the beads easier to arrange as you progress.

For this coin purse, you will need approximately 1400 beads which are about 3meters of threaded yarn. Scary as it may sound, in this Video Crochet Tutorial you will discover a little trick that will make bead stringing practically a piece of cake.

To attach the coin purse to the frame you must fit it into the gap at the front side of the frame (usually front and back are the same so just pick a side). You will then back stitch and sew them together with an embroidery needle threaded with the tail of the coin purse yarn.

The needle must be inserted into the stitch loops, of the last round of the coin purse and then into the frame holes from the inside of the frame. The diameter of the coin purse is calculated so that it will leave a small space of 3 stitches on each of the frame joints.

This 6 stitches (3 on each side) will be sewn without being attached to the frame, just to bring the needle to the other end. Finally, the thread will be secured inside the gap of the frame, so that it won’t be visible and the excess will be cut.

It is important to stuff your finished Beaded Coin Purse with some sort of filling so that it will form a better shape. That being said I leave you to watch this Crochet Tutorial Video and make a beautiful Beaded Crochet Coin Purse.
