This adorable watermelon zippered bag with matching coin purse is sure to make anyone smile. Perfect for Summer time or any time, they will hold so many things and are super sweet all the time. You don't even have to go out in to the heat to the watermelon patch, you can make your very own.
These would be great for coins, chapstick, jump drives, lunch money for school, marbles, you name it! My husband even snagged a small watermelon as a coin purse for himself!
The fabric is what makes it look like a watermelon but you could easily use any fabric and it would be just as cute!
The watermelon fabric I used is a Timeless Treasures fabric.
