I designed this little wallet for my youngest daughter who will be attending formal school next year. She does not need a whole lot of cards, but just her student ID card. She will not be carrying a lot of cash either, just a couple of dollars daily. This is why the BTS (Back-to-School) Wallet is a simple, yet functional wallet, perfect for every school-going kid!
This compact little wallet features an ID Window ideal for storing an ID card or a picture of your loved ones! Double slip pockets allow you to slip in cash or extra cards easily. Keep your coins safe in the zippered pocket. Flip the wallet around and you'll see an overlapped compartment - a perfect little spot for storing tissues, spare mask or a feminine product.
In fact, this wallet works great even for an adult looking for something lightweight to carry around! Its a BTS (Back-to-Simplicity) Wallet for them! This minimalist design forces you to be selective in your choices about what to carry around every day. It is a design that users of all ages will appreciate.
I would love to share this design with everyone! I hope you will enjoy making it as much as I do!
