Zebra Coin Purse

Zebra Coin Purse

Mother’s Day is only two weeks away; have you finished your gifts yet? If Mom likes jungle-themed accessories, here’s a quick and easy gift for her.  Use a black and white ombre yarn, and it will determine the zebra stripe pattern for you. It only takes about 3 hours to crochet this adorable zebra coin purse. It’s large enough to hold money, credit card, and keys but small enough to fit in a jacket pocket. You could even attach a chain to the purse frame to make it a neck wallet.
