 I found the idea and tutorial for this change purse here:
http://howaboutorange.blogspot.com/2011/08/make-self-zipping-coin-purse-from.html

The tutorial is on the Craft Passion website here:
http://www.craftpassion.com/2011/07/zip-itself-coin-purse-tutorial.html

The tutorial uses ribbon but all of my ribbons were too wide.  However, I had a some awesome Emily Strange shoelaces hang around not doing anything so I used them instead and they worked just as well.  The tutorial is easy to follow for the most part but I hate working zippers and this coin purse definitely reminded me of that seeing that it is all zipper.

Doing its job.


Completely zipped it forms a pyramid shape.


Partially unzipped.


Totally unzipped.

That's really neat, I can't believe that it was once a shoelace.
