Made these little stitchless leather coin purses awhile back, saw them online somewhere and worked out the pattern for the template. The back can be done just like the front (only sideways) with a snap, so the whole thing comes completely open. Or I used a rivot on back, so the thing stays mostly closed. My wife keeps her earrings in them.

Used a Sam Brown stud closure on this second one.
