Sideways Ribbed Coin Purse

Please note that this purse will come out rather thick.

US size 10 needles
approx. 50 yards each  2 skeins
2 buttons
tapestry needle.

Purse is worked flat then seamed. No need to create button holes.

Gauge unimportant.

Using both strands held together as one, cast on 30 stitches.
Work k1/p1 ribbing until piece measures 4 inches from start.
Bind off.
Turn 90 degrees so it is lengthwise.
Fold one end about 3/5 of the way up, and sew into place. 
Flip inside out. 
Remaining piece is the flap. 
Sew buttons onto the purse, NOT the flap. 
Button them into place through the space between stitches.
