I am very very fussy about my purse (wallet for our USA friends) and have used the same one (which as it happens I purchased in USA) for over 20 years now!! Recently it has been looking rather sad, sorry for itself and I have looked everywhere to find a replacement. I want the exact same style - with card slots and two zipped inside pockets! Ask my daughter how much anguish this has caused - every time I/we go shopping I look through all the purses I can find and never get anywhere.
How bad is it you ask? Well look....... This is a side view and as the press fastener stopped holding some time ago, so I used stick on Velcro..... Now that has lost its sticking power. Is this really sad????
Today I decided to address the issue myself...... firstly I made two (quick, un-lined) small purses (using pieces of fabric left from my Klimt bodice - thinking I could use one for coins and one for credit cards etc, but I am not sure I like the idea now. These will just get put away somewhere, or should I give them away in a giveaway???
Anyway - I have a stack of old jeans I use for various projects and the idea suddenly struck - why don't I just make a new purse the same.... So here it is - credit card slots, even two zipped pockets inside.... it is the same size (ish) as my old purse. The only think I did not think through and am not sure what do is is how to fasten it. Too late for press studs - perhaps a button and loop?? Any suggestions please..
