Mariner Cloth Minimalist Wallets

Mariner Cloth Minimalist Wallets - NoodleheadWhen I first saw Alison post about her new Mariner Cloth collection I knew it was a must-have. The texture! The stripes! The colors! I’m guessing I might have ooo’d and ahh’d out loud even. Alison (and Chen) must have totally picked up on my excitement so they sent me a sweet package of a few of the colors. It’s really so pretty in person and I’ve already got plans to buy more. It’s such an interesting cloth. It’s a loose weave and could be great for so many things! Right away I was thinking some long lumbar pillows or cloth napkins or an apron.

I decided that I’d try it out with some Minimalist Wallets and I love how they turned out. I had fun pulling fabrics and mixing and matching the fabrics, zippers, leather, and snaps. I did make a test run and decided that the Mariner cloth needed just a bit more interfacing for added stability, so I added that to the small wallets and it worked great. I added an layer of SF101 to the second Main Panel and a layer of 809 to the front pocket. For me, it ended up being just right. I love experimenting with different fabrics like this one! It’s a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Plus, knowing a few small tweaks like adding a bit of interfacing makes substrates like the Mariner Cloth just right for these wallets.

I definitely need some of the black and white to make a few pillows for my bed maybe or living room or both! I know my girls would love the Thistle, Eggplant, and Raspberry, too. Hmm, I’ve got some planning to do I guess!

You can find the Minimalist Wallet PDF pattern in my shop, or in my booklet Everyday Essentials (at your local quilt shop or my shop). I have zippers, snaps, and leather, too if you need any supplies.

Alison Glass Mariner Cloth is trickling into shops now (including Alison’s shop)! I’ve spotted shops like Pink Castle Fabrics and Fancy Tiger Crafts having it in stock.
