Great, just what I am looking for -thank you and your coin purse is lovely. I have a question why not just cut out a circle instead of two semi circles for the lining. Cathy
I'm not the author, but I thought the same thing when I read this. You could use a knitted fabric for lining, like t-shirt knit, and it would also be stretchy. I would put the lining on before adding the zipper, for ease of assembly, unless you want to have the lining attached to the zipper inside.
