Shop: new coin pouch and find us in Little Paper Planes!

zipper pouch from Istanbul, Turkey Last summer I was eating butifarra amb mongetes in a Catalan restaurant in Gracia, Barcelona with some friends, new and old. When it came time to pay the bill, we all pulled out our various wallets/coin purses and I looked over at one of the new friends, from Barcelona, and we laughed as we had the same exact coin purse! I asked her where she got hers - and she said Istanbul! Which is precisely where I got mine! Fast forward, I was thinking about small items to show the Treasure Island Flea, where we'll be later this month, and I remembered this handy coin pouch. I have a ton of leftover gorgeous fabric from my sewing days, and so I spent most of Tuesday sewing one-of-a-kind pieces.

Recycled fabrics and jean zipper coin purses

The result, a handy little coin pouch to throw in your bag or purse. They measure about 5 1/2" x 4", with slight variations as I am hand cutting and hand sewing each one in my Mission studio. Each has a unique liner and the zippers are actually jean zippers. The tabs help you open and close easily. I store things like bobby pins, tampons, and lip gloss in mine. It's nice to have one for each category so you always know what's inside what.
