Introduction: The Easiest Coin Purse Ever

About: This profile is awful, It's my old user from 2017. Please ignore the cringe.

If you have a lonely old sock, and some change rattling down in your bag, This is perfect! It's really easy to make, and useful, it is fabric, so it can collapse or be folded. So let's get started!

Step 1: Whatcha' Need

What you'll need for today's project:

  • Embroidery needle, or cross stitch needle
  • lonely sock, or pair of old socks (preferably clean :P)
  • Thread to fit your needle (I wanted mine to match, and I suggest it to you too.)
  • Scissors
  • Loose change

Time duration: About 5 minutes

Step 2: Get Started!

Thread your needle, and tie a knot at the end. put your needle right under the lip of the sock, and pull your thread through, and do a simple In-Out Stitch, (If you don't know what that is, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00cylUp-SBM it's appropriate for all ages, just watch the first half)

Until you reach back around to where you started, make sure your last stitch comes out, not in! I suggest starting at the front of the sock, But you can start at the back.

Step 3: Finish Up

Once you've gone all around the sock,then tie a knot with a bit of slack, and cut off excess.

Step 4: You're Done!

Told you it was easy.

Step 5: Hmmm...

I've been making quite a few instrucables lately, But Give me an Idea for one! You give me a concept,

And I'll make it an istructable! Needs to be appropriate, and the best one gets theirs made!

Happy Making!

    Hey! Thanks for looking! I used a neon one, but the camera made it look rusty.

    Ah, I can see that in 1 or 2 of the pictures, but I actually thought of Christmas when I saw it :)

    Oh Yeah, I remember that! You can use a drawstring bag for just about anything.
