I saw a cute idea in "Bend the Rules Sewing" by Amy Karol for a small coin purse. I made it longer and skinnier (I only had larger zippers and wasn't patient enough to wait), used felt for the inside lining to make it heavier, and added an inside pocket for small stuff. I made two thus far - one for me and one for my mom...but they are quick and easy and I have lots of remnants and vintage zippers left in my stash, so I think more are coming!
The book has many cute patterns and ideas - I want to make the felt elf hat for our dress up basket!!
