I started to make Gamaguchi coin purses. Gamaguchi is a type of clasp, metal frame, usually used for wallet, bags, glasses cases, pouches, etc. For my coin purses projects, I use silk ribbons, fabrics and gamaguchi.
The Golden Flower Coin Purse
Let’s open the clasp.. have a peek..
PS: that is my son’s photo, over a mouse pad…
The Glittered Coin Purse
I used shocking pink silk ribbon, with glittered golden line on it.
The Flamingo Coin Purse
My pattern this time quite interesting … I made these orange “crazy” lines and colorful stitched beads on red hot and bright orange ribbon… Love it
Vegas Coin Purse
This pattern is quite interesting, mixing two different materials, ribbon and yarn.
The result looks beautiful and luxurious
Maintenance Tips for Gamaguchi Products
Here are some tips I’ve found on the internet:
- Apply a waterproof spray on the purse, to protect it from dust and soil.
- Do not soak the gamaguchi into the water, it can cause damage or discoloration of the frame.
- Use a soft brush or towel to clean.
- If the clasp become loose, open the clasp and then pushed the knobs gently, shown below:
