This is a cool little project that my friend Annie Lee made for me that I use every single day! This was made as a business card holder but I started using it as my credit card wallet and I love it!
So, this used some of last year’s Candy Cane Christmas fabric and the Big Designer Buttons. She sewed two pieces of fabric together for the cover (so there is cute striped fabric on the inside and polka dot fabric on the outside). The clever part is she took a hair rubber band and stitched it between those two layers on one side to be used as the “clasp”. There is also a line of stitching half way between the two short edges to hold the fabric together and make a clean fold for the wallet to fold in half around. Finally, she added another polka dot fabric piece to each side to make the pockets.
Add a button to the front and it works awesome! Having a diaper bag with me all the time, it is nice to be able to have a small wallet for my credit cards that I can put in the pocket and not have it take up too much space in my overstuffed bag.
If you want to make your own, there is still some retired fabric and a few colors of these designer buttons in the Clearance Rack for a great deal!! The retired fabric is only $3.99 and the buttons are only $3.59! Didn’t I tell you it is an awesome deal? That is 60% off!
Well, hope you have a great Friday…. and only 4 days until I’m off to the Stampin’ Up! convention!
