If I see a problem, I try to find a solution... and I had a problem that needed a solution! I usually keep my keys in my pocket when I am out shopping but I had on shorts that didn't have pockets so I tossed the keys in my pocketbook. All was fine until I was trying to find my keys in a dark parking lot with some people "hanging around" that left me feeling much less than comfortable. So I came up with a solution which of course required a little bi t of sewing on every bag I own. The end result has my keys where I can always find them, whether I am wearing pants with pockets or not.
