Fabric wallet

I made this quick and easy fabric wallet in an evening to match my Zip Zip bag. It uses very little fabric and I had plenty left over. It was late when I finished, so in the morning I had to unstitch some. I had a little problem with the folding but it wasn't a big deal and I won't have the same problem again.

This is the outside when it's laid flat. There's a small Velcro closed coin pouch there where the colors contrast.

This is the inside. There's 2 card slots on the right and a Velcro pouch for money on the left. I still need to add a sew in snap but it stayed nice and closed in my purse and pocket when I went out the next day. These would make great wrapping for gift card holders and money. I'm planning to make more of these. You can find the pattern free on Craftsy and the instructions here at Sew Can She's Blog.

I'm managing to get at least one small project done a week. This is amazing to me! God has come into my life and made me so much more myself than I ever thought I could be. This week I'd like to make baby shoes for my nephew and get back to quilting my quilt again. I'd also like to make a small headphone case to match my bag and a coin bag. There's no priority on any of these so I'll see what I get to. 

Happy Sewing! I know I am!

    1. Thanks for letting me know I'm a no-reply blogger. I didn't know I was. And thanks for the comment and your blog. Happy sewing!


Thanks for commenting! I hope to have a reply to you shortly but if not it's because I'm busy quilting.
