|Girlie Wallet (inside)|
What do you think? I made up this quick wallet Sunday afternoon. I got the idea to make a "side" folding wallet after once again messing up my measurements for a checkbook cover/tri-fold wallet. Eyeballing is not measuring! Anyway, I think it's pretty cute, but I'm not a big fan of the elastic closure. I just think it looks a bit cheesy...like no one would know that is a recycled ponytail holder! Call this a prototype then. I shall make another wallet minus the elastic...how about velcro? Too little boyish? Accepting suggestions!
Unfortunately, I didn't get much sewing done this weekend. Besides the above wallet, I managed to make a sleep mask for my daughter. I'm not sure why she wanted one, especially since she sleeps with the hall light on, but I promised her I'd make one, so I did.
I found the directions for this mask at Wolf and Willow. There was a PDF pattern available, which came in very handy. I modified the pattern just a bit by drawing the closed eyes onto the fabric with a fabric marker instead of cutting out and sewing black cotton to the pink mask. All and all it was a pretty quick and easy project!
Sadly, I didn't get a purse done for myself this weekend! I'm struggling with finding a pattern I really like. Again, I'm all ears for suggestions!
Talk to you soon!
