Here are two wallets I made using the Double Zip Wallet pattern from my book. I think this is such a fun and satisfying project. I love useful things and of course a wallet gets a lot of use! And what a perfect way to use my favorite fabrics. I think I could easily find myself making a bunch for friends for Christmas or just for fun actually. Sorry to sound all gushy. I guess lately I’ve been really grateful to have small projects to work on that are easy to finish. Summer is awesome, but stealing time away to sew doesn’t sound like so much fun when the pool and bicycles and ice cream shop are calling! Know what I mean?
I had picked out a few of my favorite Leah Duncan prints to use for these and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I love these fabrics so much!! I think they lend themselves so well to accessories (and everything else – who am I kidding?!). I love that there are two zippered compartments for coins and other important documents (including my iPhone 6), the interior pockets have places for cards and even a check book.
Hope you’re enjoying summer! School is just around the corner for my girls and we’re excited about things starting, I may have even convinced them to join swim team this fall, yayyyyy!
