I'm back again with another Necessary Clutch Wallet. This is the third one I made. The last two were in upholstery fabric and I wanted to see how the wallet felt made up in quilting cotton. I was a bit worried it would be a bit flimsy and not have as much structure as the other two but I was really pleased with it and it was so much easier to sew than the other two. I was able to make this one solely on my domestic sewing machine.
I'd bought some of this fabric about 4 years ago and couldn't get hold of any more. The last thing I made was a wallet and makeup bag set that you can see on my blog header. Luckily my daughter found some again and bought me four meters.
My wallet still isn't perfect so I guess I'll just have to keep making more till I'm happy with it LOLL.
The magnetic button was too far down so it was tough sewing around it as you can see on the inner row of stitching.
I missed those little threads when I was snipping. Why is it they only show up on photos LOL.
On this wallet I added fabric zipper tabs to reduce the bulk when sewing into the sides.
See what I mean about the magnetic button being too far down. Of course if you use the twist lock like in the pattern you won't have this problem.
Ok that's enough wallets for now. I need to make 5 bags. Luckily they're not needed all at the same time.
Happy Sewing to you all.
