In the www I found a nice tutorial, which I could not resist to try.
Triangle Zipper Coinpurse by Craft Passion
The tutorial is easy to follow. I used a greater size though, 7 inches instead if 5, according to my zipper.
The zipper is not perfect and I’d rather have it in the center of one triangle. The loop or handle turned out oddly, have to improve at next try.
If you want to give it a go, be sure to read the top comments, there are some great hints in it.
Some time ago I sewed a frame purse. I was happy how it turned out, but when I use it, I have to notice that the snap closure opens mechanically. What a pitty. I’ll rather stick to zippers.

Pattern is from Craftsy: Ur Priceless
I doubled the size to fit the frame.
I bought a purse frame and sewed this little bag with a strap.
This one, I’m afraid, is NOT purple.
