Crochet Pattern: Coin Purse Keychain

By Candace – 10 Comments
Here’s a keychain that has both form and function. It’s a cute miniature tote bag, and if you install a zipper or other fastener, you can use it as a coin purse. Try making a brightly colored one and using it to hold the change you need to feed the parking meter at the beach.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 2 1/2″ (6.5 cm) wide, 2″ (5 cm) tall

Medium Weight Yarn (10 yards)
Crochet Hook G (4.250 mm)

8 hdc = 2″ (5 cm)
4 rows = 1″ (2.5 cm)

    A button would be cool to close it.

    Zippers come as small as 6 inches in sewing stores. They’re simple to shorten, lots of tutes on the internet to see how to do that.

    Once a key is attached to a crochet key chain like the above, is there a way i can detach it without actually cutting the string/handle of the key chain?

  5. blt says:

    To fasten the top, try those small circle velcro at the top

  6. blt says:

    Another great idea: weave a string of yarn at the top around and tie ends to make a bow for the outside!

  7. Hi, I tried this, but it became so much bigger than I thought ( 7 cm wide and 8 cm tall) , how can I make it smaller? Please
