The Zip-up cardholder is a small, beginner-friendly project. It features two card slot pockets on the front, so you can keep your bank cards or travel card handy. On the back, there is an additional bigger slip pocket where you can keep your shopping receipts, or like me, a spare mask. The main compartment is fully lined and can be accessed by opening the top zipper. It is big enough to store spare change, notes, and house keys.
