Small Pursellet

A pursellet is a coin purse and wallet combo. This is a small one, designed by me, to carry your folded bills on one side and your cards on the other with your coins in the center. The inside is lined with contrasting fabric and it closes with a zipper. I used a medium weight interfacing in back of the main fabric and lining to give this pursellet some structure. The bottom is squared off which creates a lot of room for everything you need to carry, even the miscellaneous bits of papers we all seem to collect.  

Hand washable, this pursellet can hold it all and is small enough to be carried in a jacket pocket or back pocket of your jeans - great for those times when you don’t want to carry a big bag. 

The approx. dimensions are 6” x 4” with the bottom measuring about 1" wide. 

Here are some recent ones I've made and put up for sale on  Etsy:

Harry Alexander dragon fabric - this is the front.

This is the back.

Hand dyed (by me) fabric.

Floral print.

Hawaiian themed.

Orange dots.

Inside view - empty.

Full - The pockets can hold about 15 cards on each side - the pockets were designed to keep everything separate from each other for easy access. 

I consider the small pursellet my signature piece as I designed it and have been using one for several years now. These are on sale for $15.00. 

I also designed a larger one that can hold unfolded bills - the pockets are designed so you place your cards "head" first instead of the conventional way. This one goes for $18.00:

I have other things for sale as well - bags, water bottle holders, beaded necklaces, herbal product, as well as other useful items. Visit my shop anytime, my doors are always open.
