Here's a design to keep your coins corralled and your keys together. A mini backpack coin purse and key chain! These are a fresh take on a design that I've had kicking around for years.
This time around, I fashioned them from scraps of laminated cottons. I first made mini backpacks years ago, when my sons were young. They could clip a coin purse to their clothes ( my youngest liked to clip his onto his coat zipper). The mini backpacks proved handy for shopping trips or a day spent at an amusement park as a means of keeping spending money safer than stuffed in a pocket.
My newest versions are decidedly girl-y looking with polka dots and pretty ribbon. I believe only one of the early versions is still around, made from a cotton with a snake print, which appealed to my sons at the time. The downside of using cotton is that it eventually wore out, believe it or not, from the dollar bills chafing it on the inside. I don't see that happening with the laminated cottons, plus there's no fraying on the unfinished seams. A great little project to use up laminated cotton scraps! Any interest in a tutorial?
