Qwerty Wallet Holds Cash, Credit, but Not Your Keys
Perfect for those of you who like a little geek with your chic (or is that the other way around?), this quirky QWERTY keyboard design wallet helps you keep all your personal items in order. The wallet offers plentiful storage for credit cards, cash, spare change and even a checkbook, but no matter how hard you press on the keys, it still won’t control your computer (although it really should.) Designed by California indie crafter QuietDoing, the QWERTY pocketbook [$44] is covered with a bold black and white keyboard fabric, coated in clear vinyl (for added durability), and lined with a lime-green and navy-blue vinyl interior.
