Hippy Colors Coin Purse with Zipper Closure

This is crocheted with Coats & Clark Royale thread #10 and a #5 hook.  Click on the photo for actual size which is 5" x 3½"   The fabric is dense, strong and seamless so needs no lining as a coin purse.  The thread is color fast so one can toss it in the wash if it gets grubby.  I made something similar worked in the round many years ago, I've been using it to carry a comb, chapstick and such doohickeys for years and years.  These things are indestructible. Plus it's easy to find in the bottom of a bag.  I prefer these colors worked in the round because it grows into swirls of color with an especially cheerful effect. I added the little wrist strap for extra utility. It can be zipped inside if not needed.
