This post was going to be part of my 31-Days of Blog Writing Challenge but that post was entirely too long with this stuff. I had to yank this project out and put it here.
Tula Pink fabric a while back. I knew I wanted to make a wallet with it but I hadn't found a pattern. Then, I found the Pearl Wallet Clutch from Swoon. I have a few patterns from Swoon (they do have a couple free patterns if you want to see what one is like). The digital download versions are fast to purchase and really fit that instant-gratification mindset. I decided to settle down long enough to combine the fabric and the pattern into a fun wallet. (This photo, with the snap in the middle of Elizabeth's forehead can't even be seen on the finished wallet.)
American Made Brand solid. The green is a Connecting Threads solid. You can't see inside the zipper compartment to see a light blue solid; I don't know where that one came from.
Pellon Peltex. Sadly, it isn't the wallet I want. This isn't the pattern's fault. It is clearly written and easy to follow. It just isn't the wallet that fits with my life. It did teach me a few things about wallet construction, so I'm not giving up. There is also a wonderful tutorial by Erin of Diedel*Bug Handmade to make this into a zip-around wallet that I want to try. I'll let you know how it works out.
