The first time I stumbled upon a NES purse instructable, (here
) I made one of myself right away. In the process, and in the daily usage, I found many glitches that I tried to overcome. Such as: coinage make the case rattle too much, and the purse can be opened halfways wide open, dropping all the content. So, this is my third NES purse (v 1.0 was stolen (too cool to let in my backpack unnatended), v2.0 was rendered as a gift to my girlfriend (also stolen from his backpack, thievemagnet this thing is)), so in v 3.0 I managed to backup the whole construction process, to end up with a fully capable and wearable object.
I just worked on a borrowed idea. Credit given where credit's due.
...and keep it safe. It's a wonder how the regular people feel impelled to steal this little gizmo.
