Play Wallet

Anna has been really getting into imaginary play and her current favourite game is 'shops'. We have traded many things including tan bark, flowers, socks, but I thought she might like to trade with something a little more realistic!


We like to pretend to buy (or sell depending on who is playing which role - shopkeeper or shopper) and lately the smaller items from the pantry have been the items of choice. I got a free download of Mollie Makes Magazine Issue 5 on my iphone and it had a great and very easy wallet tutorial, so I made Anna a little wallet so she can pay for her shopping items with money.

I only needed a really small amount of fabric and I got all of it from my scrap bag. You can see the exterior in the above picture, and here is the interior:


 The wallet is a great size for some cash and a few cards, and I think I might make a couple for myself for times I need something smaller than my everyday wallet.

Here it is with some cash and cards - for Anna I use monopoly money but for this pic I put in the real thing!


It fastens with a simple button and elastic loop but you could get really creative with this simple design and customize it in many different ways.

Cute huh? Great for kiddies and mamas alike!

Linking here with lots of other amazingly creative people.

  1. Just as well Anna doesn't know the value of money, or you would have lost at least $30... LOL!!! She'll love playing with it. The wallet looks fabulous! It's a great size for an adult when you're going out at night. Thanks for sharing the link. I'm going to have a look.
