Texas Pride Coin Purse

“Texas Pride Coin Purse” by Sharon Wilson


Take a bit of your state flag or favorite team colors along in your purse to keep change where it belongs!  Designed by Texan Sharon Wilson, this coin purse uses so little yarn, you can knit a dozen up today.

From Beth:

Everyone knows you “don’t mess with Texas!” Texans are a proud bunch, splashing flag-inspired decor and garments across every inch of the Lone Star State.

Texas designer Sharon Wilson used her state flag stripes in the design of this cute coin purse, but it would be adorable knit in your team colors or in any color you happen to have a bit of in your stash. This size requires less than 50 yards of yarn in total, making it the ultimate stash-buster and a seriously inexpensive gift knit. And who wouldn’t appreciate a little help in keeping purse or pockets organized and loose change-free?
