Here in the UK we call wallets, purses and this is my new one! I wanted something small, but big enough to hold a decent amount of cards as well as coins, but I didn't want them to bash together. I also wanted a zip. Here's what I came up with!

My fab caravan fabric! Anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with caravans and I bought this fat quarter and saved it for ages until I decided to make a kindle cover out of it. And cut it out wrong. Ah well, the scraps found a use!

The card slots.

Size comparison.

That won't fit in there you say!

Oh yes it will!

This was a super easy project and took me about half an hour. I think I may need more...

Totally love the card pockets....I have one of these that I use all the time, but all the stuff bangs around (like you said) and sometimes I have to pull everything out to get to the coins at the bottom Tongue
Thanks for the idea Wink
