Then you end up with more change in your wallet and the problem keeps on growing.
Enough! This morning I dug around on the internet instead of my purse for a cute solution.
Here we go!
Cutie Pie Coin Purse
Cost = $zero
I cut out a page of an old fabric sample book; found a used zipper in the deep depths of my zipper box; rescued a vagrant snippet of giant rick rack because I cannot possibly part with a molecule of trim.
Time to completion was five minutes.
I think I will make some more. Probably lots more.
Here is the link to the website that has a great tutee.
Just in case you do not have a ruler to translate metric into English measure:
I cut my rectangle to about 7" x 8"( radiused the corners for cuteness) and I cut my zipper down to 5".
Difficulty factor on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being really, really hard - I'll give it a " 2"
This is a project that you don't want to over-think. I didn't use pins, just sewed the zipper in on the fly. Probably not a great project for a beginner because it is a bit tricky to get that zipper to curve around the corner. Someone with just a bit of experience can knock this gem right out.
