Zippy Keychain Wallet Tutorial

I don't really enjoy carrying a purse, so this mini wallet is perfect for carrying my keys and essential identification. Inside, there is a zippered pouch for holding change and a window pocket for holding ID and folding money or credit cards. Hook and loop tape holds the wallet shut so everything stays neat and secure. I have been using this type of compact wallet for more than two decades and here I share how to make them. Make one in every color to match all of your purses!
