One such occasion recently was when the lovely Jessie aka MessyJesse blogged about the wallet she made for herself from a pattern from the Straight Stitch Society via Oliverands.com and I simply could not resist buying the pattern myself and having a go at the have it all wallet!
and actually I had a go at making 3 :o)
|one for me|
|one for eldest daughter|
|and one for daughter no 2!!|
I was unsure I could make as good a job as Jessie had in sewing so neatly but the pattern is excellent with good instructions so this certainly helps with finishing up with something that looks quite professional - even if I do say so myself, mwahhh
I'm rather chuffed at how they turned out - I've surprised myself really!
It was fun choosing the fabrics for the inside and outside - but I guess you could use just one fabric as well.
I love this Michael Miller 'french post' fabric - I've had it for ages and still have a decent amount left. It's probably my most favourite print - closely followed by anything cherry print of course :o)
Just had to have a go at making this cute wallet, easier than I thought it would be. I'm thinking it will make a great Christmas present...
'till next time
