What a fiddle

29 Sep

Over the past three days I have taken my baby’s nap time, plus a bit more here and there, exclusively to do these two wallets. I have ended up with two because I made so many mistakes on the one I started with, I had to ‘cut and paste’, I mean sew, making these. The pattern is thought up with the help of looking at past wallets of my own and those in charity shops. I tried to follow my initial ideas on the first wallets I made up in August, and now, attempting these two so much later on, I have forgotten how to put them together! That takes up the time and it’s where the mistakes happen, argh. SO PHEW! Finally finished. I am pleased enough, but think I either need to practice like I did with the bags, change the pattern or give up the idea of the fiddly wallets all together. Tell me what you think?.

    I think they look really nice – and would be good to have with a matching bag or something – as a set.

    Thanks Jane, they were so fiddly, I was really scratching my head about HOW to sew them up.

    Floral pocketbooks in swirls of vibrant colour ~ I like the fact that they’re both practical and fun. Also, the stripy pattern made by the overlapping material where the credit cards go.

      Thanks! You have given me motivation to make some more. The colours are brilliant, I do agree.

    The green inside of the wallet joined by the warm orange, small flowers with silver and white cc pockets looks great. I think the white zip change pocket inside is a lovely surprise too. Ags

      Thanks for your comment. I do like the floral bright designs of this oilcloth.
