Money Cuff

Another easy project I put together last night after the kids were asleep was this money cuff. I was trying to find something for my niece's birthday when I came across this tutorial from Christie of A Lemon Squeezy Home. It is such a good idea, and my niece appreciates crafty things. I hope she likes it. I had to work with what was in my stash. When it comes to fabric I have a lot to choose from, but the zipper was a different matter... I stole this one from a pair of jeans I was cutting up for another project. Note to self: keep a few zippers in my stash for spontaneous, late-night projects.

A zipper from old jeans!!! That's fantastic. I like the money cuff too- any of my kids would absolutely love to get one of those! And I have a stash of old jeans waiting to be cut into quilt squares so now I'm excited to hang onto the zippers too. Thanks!

Money cuffs would be great for kids. I'd like one for trips and such wear hauling a big bag around isn't so handy (like amusement parks). Waaaaay more stylish than the fanny pack of the '80's.
