The Penny Inn

  • The Penny Inn will surprise you with just how much stuff you can pack in there, including your mobile phone! You can keep your cards, cash and receipts all organised and make good use of one of the zipper pockets to stash some cash away for a rainy day!

  • The Penny Inn features a gorgeous flip lock main compartment closure, opening into 8 card slots with optional slip pocket, two large slip pockets, a zippered coin section, an additional zipper pocket and a phone slip pocket.

    The second wallet section, secured by a snap tab, features an additional 12 card pockets, an ID window and a slip pocket as well as another zipper pocket.

    You can choose to add a wrist strap, or an adjustable cross body strap. Both are secured via detachable hooks, so why not make both straps so you can swap them as desired. Or remove them completely so you can pop your wallet in your bag instead!

    You can see our blog post sew along with Ellen HERE!
