A New Wallet

Hi!

I have been on the look out for a new wallet for a few months now.  This summer my wallet tore up, and I have needed a new one.  I haven't seen any in stores that I like, but Gussy Sews has some beautiful ones.  Some homemade ones.  So I figured I would make myself a wallet.


I used two different choices of fabric, lining, a hair band and a button for the closure.I added a section for my cash.

 Along with some card holders for the inside.

Then added the button and closure to the middle.

I had everything on hand already.  I love those types of projects.  I knew what I wanted to have in it, so I just had to take a minute to get my thoughts straight on how to sew it like I wanted.

I am so glad that I made myself a wallet. It was pretty simple.  Took a total of about an hour, maybe.  Probably shorter.  Would you want a tutorial on how to make yourself one?  I know you could do it.
If I have enough interest, I'll get a tutorial up on one soon!  Now I just need to make a matching sunglasses case.  Maybe that will be a project for this weekend. 

I like to party at these awesome places.

Thanks so much for reading.  Have a great day!

  1. Great fabric - bright and cheery. That will never get lost at the bottom of your purse! I've never made a wallet. I may give it a try - maybe for Christmas presents!

  6. What a pretty wallet! The color really pops. I need that kind of color in my purse that is essentially a black hole. :)
