I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you get loads of fabric and sewing goodies as gifts. Roses and chocolates wouldn't go amiss either.
On Friday I took the day off making orders and decided I needed a new wallet. Not like the ones I normally make but a new style.
I'm a new follower of Yayi's blog at De Todo Un Poco. It's in Spanish but can be translated. Yayi has the most beautiful creations and loads of lovely tutorials. This wallet was from one of those tutorials. If you click on her blog link above just go to the bottom of the post which will give you the link to the tutorial which is in two parts.
Here's my new wallet. I'd bought this floral fabric about three years ago and finished it then I couldn't find any more but my daughter came to the rescue and found it for me. She got me two meters but I'm going to ask her to buy some more.
My machine didn't do too well on the closure tab. Next time I'll have to either sew it by hand or sew it on my industrial machine.
I've also been thinking of making one without all the binding but that's for another Friday when I need a break. If I do make it with binding then I'll have to choose a thinner fabric. This green one was a bit bulky for a wallet.
This wallet has room for 20 cards.
A zipper pocket for change. I put my zipper in the wrong way round to the tutorial but it's still easy to use like this.
And a larger slip pocket for notes.
