combined with linen and some pretty fabric scraps (from my generous friend Jacqueline - she has the best scraps!).
I'm going the long way around in revealing what this project is. *I'll give you a hint... this is the outside view and that zipper compartment is for coins.*
This is the inside view, where you can see I had fun combining many different fun prints.
Finally, here is my new wallet folded up and ready to go...
with the coin compartment waiting to be filled! ;o)
I took my wallet out for its test run last night. I'm thinking I may tweak the design a bit yet - I suspect I need more ease in the proportions to allow for the over stuffing I tend to put my wallets through. Um.... no, that over stuffing would not be from a burgeoning supply of cash ( I wish), but more like I tend to jam lists, receipts, coupons and assorted paper miscellanea into my wallets - totally "blimping" them up. No guesses as to why my purse gets so heavy, right? ;o)
