Yesterday and today I worked hard on this wallet. The exterior is the blue floral pattern that coordinate with the stripes. Though it may appear to function well, it does not. It is my fault, not the pattern. The far right pocket can hold stamps, but not a credit card. I hate how the edges are crooked and mostly not lined up. And it doesn't even fold evenly in half. The picture doesn't show just how bad it is.
However, I am not through. I will try again. But a different pattern this time! Maybe two!
The picture above is the Easy Peezy wallet...a free pattern I found. I like the pattern, and might even try it in the future if I buy some good felt. If you look at the pattern, it calls for felt and fabric. Silly me wanted two fabrics. (You know, to match my new purse that I haven't started yet...and yes, these are the fabrics. I did use interfacing to give it some extra form.)
So instead of a quick and easy wallet, I have a wallet that doesn't quite function. And it was NOT quick (due to me and my sewing issues and complicating the pattern with two fabrics). Unless one of my readers has a use for a , it will become my three year old's wallet. If interested, leave a comment telling me you have use for a wallet that is unloved by its maker, but have no expectations!
I have a pattern to try out and am trying to make my own, too. (CRAZY, huh? I have such limited sewing skills...) But I will ask you a question. Have you ever heard of the Wonder Wallet? I'm intrigued, but don't want to spend $7 on a pattern when there are free and less expensive ones out there. I'm also looking for a daily wallet.
