I needed a small, sleek wallet with a strap on it and the right pockets to carry my essentials for when I go out. I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for in stores, so I drew up a design and made one
The strap and its small size make it so convenient to carry, even when you're in a place without a purse, or in an outfit without pockets.
*money pocket is small, since I rarely carry cash anyway, and has a flap over it to hold in change
*wrist strap so very convenient!
*see through id window for bus pass convenience (made out of an overhead projector sheet of acetate… which kind of buckled when I ironed it all :-/)
*special little pocket to hold a really lucky coin
*super compact, fits into all pockets and doesn't weigh ya down!
The next photo is a close up of a special pocket meant to harbor a very special coin which was given to me by a (crazy?) guy who used to come in to starbucks (he told me to hold onto this till he came back for it. Something about him becoming famous and I get a box seat. Something about the end of the world too, as I recall. He was a nice guy.):
And the original drawing:
PS: these photos were taken before I put snaps on. I put one .5" snap just above the see-through id part, so when it's snapped it holds all the important cards in that pocket. Works
really well, feels extra secure to carry around on wrist.
