I have been dabbling with leather work for about a year now since I first made a leather sheath for a knife I made. I enjoyed that process so much I wanted to try and make other leather products and one project I wanted to try was making a leather pinwheel coin pouch. A friend had one of these and I always thought it was a neat little object and wanted to try making one myself. Making a pinwheel coin purse is a pretty simple process, if you have a good template or pattern to go by. When I first tried to find a pattern I had very little luck finding one, at least not one that wasn’t for sale for $20US or more!
After searching for a while I eventually found a free one but it wasn’t very well drawn or explained. I figured I should come up with my own pattern and make it available to anyone looking to make one of these coin purses! I also thought I should make a little video showing how easy it was to make.
So here are the patterns, I have a PDF with some simple instructions as well as a .dwg file so you can scale this up or down to fit your needs exactly.

And finally here is the video showing how the pinwheel pouch is made:
