I’ve always been a wallet girl. I like to carry my cash and cards in a neat wallet, sometimes pinched under my arm, or more recently, in a small, boho-style crossover bag. But what to do with change? I don’t use cash very often, but I still end up with jingling coins somewhere in my bag and I hate it. I decided it was high time to take a few minutes and make myself something: a crochet striped coin purse!
So adorable, right?
It’s the perfect size for carrying all your change, and tucks neatly into your bag or purse.
