Yay, it’s officially my favorite month…OCTOBER! Bring on Halloween decorations, handmade costumes, and ridiculous amounts of candy. I can’t think of a better project to celebrate this month than a Jack Skellington Coin Purse Pattern. Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our family’s favorite movies with both adults and children so it only made sense to make this tutorial to participate in Expressions Vinyl’s Disney Blog Hop & Giveaway!
Enter below to win an amazing Disney adventure!
Jack Skellington Coin Purse
- Kiss Lock Closure
- StripeFlock Heat Transfer Vinyl – Black
- Jack Skellington Silhouette Cutting File
- Strong Silicon Glue
- Structure Medium Weight Interfacing
Step 1. Unless you found the exact same kiss lock closure (unlikely since I found it in a clearance bin years ago!), you’re going to have to begin by making your own pattern. Don’t worry, it’s really easy! Just take the closure and trace around the edge. Use a bowl to add a circular bottom and then connect the two. Make sure to add a 1/2″ seam allowance around the entire shape before cutting. Use the pattern to cut 2 fabric pieces, 2 lining pieces, and 4
Step 2. Use the free Jack Skellington Coin Purse free file to cut the face and words from black vinyl. I used Black StripeFlock Heat Transfer Vinyl from Expressions Vinyl to add a nice texture and make the image extra dark. Transfer to the two white fabric cut-outs.
Step 3. Sew the outer and inner pieces together. Nevermind the funky pattern shape below! I had to completely remake my coin purse because I didn’t account for the seam allowance on top and the fabric was too small. Follow the pattern shape found in Step 1 and you won’t have this problem!
Step 4. Turn the outer fabric right side out and slide it into the lining pocket. Sew around the top edges, making sure to leave a small opening to turn the piece right sides out.
Step 5. Push the lining into the outer fabric pocket and stitch the small opening closed.
Step 6. Apply glue into the closure rim and insert fabric. Make sure that the fabric pouch is pushed all the way in. You can go back and fully secure the coin purse with a bit of needle and thread through the holes in the closure.
