I've just gotten back into sewing in a big way thanks to Etsy. I've only sold 1 item (so far) but it's sort of made it okay to sew like a maniac because "it's in the name of a 2nd income, not just time and money wasting". How was that for justifying, pretty good eh?!
After a decade or more of not being able to sew for my son, other than bedding, curtains, etc., he knew I was getting back into sewing so sent me a photo of a fabric wallet he liked the look of. Well, I couldn't race up to my sewing room fast enough. Found a pattern for the wallet he liked and had it whipped up that night. Was tedious which isn't my strong point, but I'm learning.
Here's the wallet:
Anyway, here's her wallet:
Etsy Store. Didn't add my son's wallet on there as don't think it's attractive enough. Looks better in person, didn't get very good pictures of it.
Patterns? Hmmm, I don't really use them. I search around on the internet for ideas and sometimes use tutorials but always change things around anyway. I like my daughter's wallet so much that I'd like to make one for myself also but it's hard finding the time and I always prefer sewing for others anyway.
Would love to see your creations. I'm looking for a good pattern for a women's wallet that folds in half but still has a zippered section and loads of card storage. Found one I loved but when I searched for the like it said "Not Found" so obviously died a natural on-line death ... ugh.
