I got this mushroom fabric a while back and finally decided to make a bag and coin purse out of it!
Both the bag and zipper purse are lined and have pockets in them.

I wouldn't consider myself an 'expert' seamstress, more beginner/intermediate so if you know the basics of sewing and have a sewing machine (well it would be easier to have a sewing machine), you can make this too!!

The final BAG is approximately 13x9 inches with the pocket being about 5.5x5 inches

The final COIN PURSE is approximately 6.5x4.5 inches with the pocket being about 3.5x2 inches

EDIT: The above final measurements are with a 5/8th inch seam allowance
Note:  For those of you who don't sew regularly, I'd recommend back-stitching wherever you are ending a line of sewing.  This will strengthen the hold.
______________________________
For the BAG you will need:

4 pieces of fabric that are 15x10 inches (2 lining, 2 outer)
2 pieces of fabric that are 7x6.5 inches for the pocket (1 lining, 1 outer)
matching thread
sewing machine (for ease)
iron/ironing board
cord or something for the purse handle

_______________________________
For the COIN PURSE you will need:

4 pieces of fabric that are 7x5 inches (2 lining, 2 outer)
2 pieces of fabric that are about 4.5x3 inches for the pocket (1 lining, 1 outer)
a lightweight 5 inch zipper (or a longer one that can be trimmed)
matching thread
sewing machine (for ease)
iron/ironing board
