Teeny tiny zip purse is one of the cuter small projects I’ve come across lately. It went together fast and easy. I recommend using a nylon zipper. If you also want to put a credit/debit card inside, you might want to increase the width 1/2 inch.
My purple Wonder Wallet has been so worn with use, I needed to replace it I changed the new one a bit from the pattern by putting a zipper pocket in and deleting another pocket. The biggest problem with that was that I did not have a nylon zipper and the metal zipper doesn’t work as well. And judging from the amount of cards I put in there, I probably should have put the Velcro up higher on the coin part of the purse. But I will still get a lot of use from it. It also goes together quickly and is very easy.
Both patterns are real beginner patterns from which you would get a lot of use. Another idea is to start making some now for all those little gifts one needs throughout the year and at Christmas.
