Every girl needs a good coin purse for those special occasions. Many beautiful and exotic patterns exist for these useful little keepers of secrets. If you have difficulty finding the perfect purse for your "little black dress" occasions, bead one for yourself that will definitely be "little black dress" approved.
Prepare a nice quiet area in which to work. This type of project will require more than an hour or two of effort. Consider setting up a portable workspace if you need to keep the supplies out of reach of animals or children.
Find the perfect pattern. There are many wonderful websites that provide beautiful patterns for beading coin purses. The trick often lies in finding the perfect pattern(s) to suit your needs and tastes. Narrow your discoveries down to one "gotta have it" design, as these projects require a great deal of time and attention.
Select the color scheme for your project and the materials necessary to complete it. The value of your coin purse will be the work that goes into it. Use inexpensive beads for the bulk of the coin purse and more expensive gems as accents.
Make sure you have all the necessary supplies before beginning. There is nothing more frustrating than finding yourself with free time to work on your beading, only to discover you don't have the materials for the next step.
Get to work. Read the instructions carefully and anticipate possible questions before beginning the project. The retailer who sold you the beads or patterns is often an excellent resource.
Tips & Warnings
- Take your time. Most beading mistakes are made when we hurry. Set aside plenty of time to complete the project or don't begin at all. It's better to go without than to go with a beautifully beaded coin purse that won't hold anything because it was put together improperly.
