    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.

    That is true. "Elementary" and "dear watson" both appear in "The Crooked Man," but not together.

    I guess I am thick headed today, can you sketch out the flat pattern. I just ain't seeing it.

    Agreed, I have been lost trying to figure this one out as well.
    I will blame the rainy day for my slowness. :dblthumb:

    Here is a flat pattern for this, you will need to work out it being an exact triangle instead of a funnel, or the back piece sits funny. But enjoy, It was a pain in the behind to work this out just off seeing it, so if I can help you guys out. No problem at all. Its not from th folded paper, it does curve up on left side a bit. Hope this helps.

    Neat little coin purse. Never seen a design like that before. Those would make great little gifts for folks or stocking stuffers.

    Nice! Like a flag, or paper football. Cool idea. Thanks for sharing.
