"Valentine Heart Coin Purse"
My valentine heart pattern is a very cute coin purse and makes a great Valentine Day gift.
The valentine heart motif may also be used to decorate a sweater, scarf, or an afghan rug.
This cute coin purse is shown as a plain pattern, however you may dress it up if you wish. A lace edge, some sequins or beading will make it more glamorous.
