I was inspired to create this pattern by my debit card. No matter what I did, my card kept getting so scratched that scanners wouldn't read it and I would have to call the bank to request a new card. I always kept my card in my wallet but somehow it was still getting scratched.
This little cozy has proved itself to be a great solution. Since I started using it about two months ago my card has remained scratch-less. It is also very convenient to stick my ID and credit card in the cozy, throw it in my pocket and spend a day at an amusement park. I love being able to use the "guests without bags" line at Disney!
