Fortune Cookie Coin Purse

I had some very small scraps of my favorite fabrics that I didn't want to throw away. What to do?  I happened to spy a cute little coin purse I bought in Chinatown. The perfect solution.
I searched the web for a pattern, couldn't find one so I made my own. 
Download the pattern for your coin purse here. Cut three of the football shapes out of a stiff plastic; a milk jug is perfect. Make sure they are all the same size.
Use a nonravel fabric for the lining. I chose a microsuede. Iron the wrong sides of both your fabrics (lining and outside) to a fusible web like Stitch Witchery or Wonder Under.
Draw around the plastic petals on the web's protective paper on the lining then cut out.
Cut the outside (not lining) fabric around the petals, making about 1/4" larger all the way around.
Cut off the pointed ends to alleviate bulkiness on the ends. (leave 1/8") Peel off the paper. Heat your iron so that it is hot enough to melt the fusible web but not so hot that it melts the plastic. Place the plastic petal on the wrong side of the fabric and with the point of the iron fold up the cut ends and fuse in place. Carefully work your way around the petal, ironing as you go until the edges are adhered. Place a piece of the protective paper (like copy paper) onto the finished plastic and iron for about 10 seconds. Turn the petal over and press the front.
Peel the paper off of the lining and iron onto the unfinished side. Repeat this process with all three shapes.

Place two of the finished footballs wrong side together and with a needle and matching thread, sew one edge together. (use tiny stitches) Add the third football by sewing one of its edges to one of the other footballs. Designate the middle football as the bottom and fold up the other two, with the decorative fabric showing on the outside. Sew the two sides together at their pointed ends. You only need to make a few stitches to hold them.
I embellished my purses with yoyos and self covered buttons in coordinating fabrics. You can make the yoyos by cutting a fabric circle then sewing a running stitch around the outside edge. Pull the thread tight to gather into a flat poof. Cover the buttons using a kit. Sew the button in the middle of your yoyo and attach to your coin purse. These purses open up when you place your thumb on one point and your index finger on the other and pinch.

Tuck a piece of jewelry inside for the perfect stocking stuffer.
