Finished wallets galore...

This is going to be a big post, because I, the obsessive sewist (is that a word?)/photographer, took many pictures. Here are the wallets I made in a few days over spring break and just finished today:

My labels came yesterday! I was so excited. They're beautiful. I ordered them from Etsy (here). I love the font and the little design at the bottom. They are a little thin, though, so next time I think I'll get thicker ones and get the writing a little bolder. And I might get them a little smaller. They're even more beautiful without the white blocks, but well, you know.

I made three mini-wallets. I've started adding a little key ring on the side. These are so small and light that you could attach them to your keys when you just need to carry your driver's license and some cash. =) I made two with this fabric on the outside:

But they're different on the inside.

I love this one! It's dark denim with a pink gingham heart applique and pink gingham on the inside.

A large denim wallet:

The embroidered flower (the stem's a little icky):

The dandelion wallet. It's really more of a darker teal color, but the lighting is off in these pictures. The teal color is linen; the striped fabric is cotton.

Spring blossoms wallet. Fabrics: chocolate brown faux suede and polka dot cotton (left over from a skirt):

So there you are: the finished products. =) I'm pretty happy with all of them, some more than others. I'm hoping to make some coasters this weekend or possibly finish my yellow seersucker skirt. I really want to have it finished before Easter...

Until next time,


  1. Your wallets are darling. Where did you get the pattern to sew them? Are you giving them as gifts or selling them?

    You did a very nice job on them. All your talents and efforts really show!
