mickey mouse coin purse free crochet pattern

The last two years I made a few crochet purses and recently I came along some nice Disney versions. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a pattern for a crochet Mickey Mouse purse so I made one and wrote down the steps. Here you go, a free pattern to make a crochet Mickey Mouse coin purse!

Below you can find a video showing how to crochet this coin purse.



Materials

– Crochet hook 3.5mm
– Fingering cotton yarn. Any brand will do. You’ll need 1 red, 1 black and 1 yellow skein
– Purse frame. Mine is 10cm but any size is okay! The pattern is adjustable to any frame size.
– Sewing needle that is small enough to go through the holes of the purse frame

In case you need help with finding purse clasps/frames, I selected some pretty (cheap) ones which I found on amazon.

This colorful set – of which red and yellow are perfect for Mickey! – costs $9 and has no shipping costs. They’re 8.5 cm which is a bit smaller than the ones I used, but you can still use the pattern. It will tell you how to adapt it to any frame size.

I really like this one, I think the red hearts are perfect for a Mickey Mouse purse. A set of 5 frames costs 7 dollars and 3 dollars for shipping.

Most of the time I use this version. It’s pretty basic. A set of 5 frames costs 4.50 dollars and 2 dollars for shipping.

Abbreviations

ch: chain
sc: single crochet (US)
inc: increase (2sc in next sc)
**: repeat between **
(): amount of stitches you should have at the end of the row

The red bottom part

Keep increasing till you have reached the size of your clasp folded open.
Start with red yarn
Round 1: 6 sc in a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: inc x6 (12)
Round 3: 1sc, inc x6 (18)
Round 4: 2sc, inc x6 (24)
Round 5: 3sc, inc x6 (30)
Round 6: 4sc, inc x6 (36)
Round 7: 5sc, inc x6 (42)
Round 8: 6sc, inc x6 (48)
Round 9: 7sc, inc x6 (54)
Round 10: 8sc, inc x6 (60)
When you use a 10 cm clasp with fingering yarn, 60 stitches will probably be big enough. If not, keep increasing till it’s big enough.


Now we will stop increasing and continue making one single crochet in every stitch for the next 7 rounds.
Round 11 – 17 (7 rounds): 1sc in every stitch (60)

The black ‘body’ part

Change to black yarn
Round 18 – 26 (9 rounds): 1 sc in every st (60)

The yellow buttons

Use yellow yarn
Round 1: 6 sc in a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: inc x6 (12)
Cut the yarn and leave a long end for sewing. Use a needle to sew the buttons on the front of the purse.

Attaching the clasp

This is a hard job to do, believe me, ghehe. You will need a small needle and thread. Put 4 markers around the purse evenly. Make sure you’ll have the color change on one of the sides. This way you won’t see the color change at all when your coin purse is done. Please take a look at the video below to see how I sewed the clasp. If you really have difficulties getting the job done – we’ve all been there, no worries – try using some glue. This way it will be more stable and it will be easier to sew. Be careful with the glue though, you don’t wanna drop it on your new purse.
