And Sew...

A coworker has been asking me to make her a new wallet for months now.  When the big snowstorm came (lol) I decided to pull some fabrics and make her a new wallet.


Hmmm, well I might have gotten a little carried away.  :o)

Here they are open so you can see the inside pockets.


I had a lot of fun choosing coordinating fabrics and buttons.  I even added a yo yo and bead to one.

They were like potato chips....I couldn't stop with just one.  They do make nice gifts.  I decided to keep the red and blue paisley one for myself.

I am working on something new in the sewing room now.  If all works out I should have something to show you this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

oh I totally understand how this happens - once I set out to make a potholder and it ended up being a twin size quilt - LOL! The wallets are lovely - you put the fabrics and buttons together so well.

Myra they are so cute! Those two pink/mauve colored paisley ones are my favorite.
That's funny how you couldn't stop at just one. Not as many calories as potato chips!

Love your wallets! You had made one for my daughter when i won one of your giveaways and she loves it. Great quilts and very creative. Sorry I don't have a tip for you. I usually take stained things to my mom.

Take Care

Wow - you really did get on a roll, didn't you?

Annie said...

Those are so great. I can't believe how many you made. I've seen patterns for those, but I can just hear my old sewing machine balking at sewing through so many layers on the sides. Yours must have great piercing power!

These are all just awesome!

Roberta said...

These are soon cute, very clever.
