Can't-Lose Keys

Martha Stewart Living, March 2013

To avoid losing her keys at the bottom of her large purse, deputy editor Jenny Comita tethers them to a ribbon anchored to the bag's strap. We tried it with a strip of leather: Loop one end through the key-chain ring. Secure the loop with a few dabs of tacky permanent glue, then attach the cord to the bag's upper interior with a safety pin.
