52 craft projects // shopping cart coin case

January 23, 2014

In Germany you need a coin (0,50€ or 1€ or a plastic chip made of the same size) to get a shopping card. That can be pretty annoying especially since you never seem to have any coins on hand when you need them. So I made a tiny case that can be added to the keychain to hold a coin,
Turns out these tiny pouches are also idea to hold small USB sticks.

I like to make these from fabric scraps and add a coordinating case to all orders over 20€. People usually love them and it’s fun to have a coordinating accessory to your knitting project bag, right?
I gave this one to Julia and seeing how ‘raw’ her keychain looked it really adds a pop of color.

    Aldi stores here in the US make people do that as well – I always carry a quarter in my side wallet for such occasions. What a cute idea to make a case for your keys !
