My Etsy store has now been closed.
My Craftsy store still exists, but only stocks free patterns.
I hope that these closures are temporary, but only time will tell.
For the time being, my patterns will only be available from (see link above).

Thank you for your patience in this time of transition

The Matching Wallet Complete (Finally!)

It ended up being quite a bit harder to complete this than I expected and in contrast to the last wallet that I made there was A LOT of unpicking and re-sewing.

I still think that the fabric was slightly too thick , so some of the hems are thicker and less tidy than I would have liked, but I am pleased with how the finished article finally turned out. I am especially proud of the fact that I managed to alter the pattern and add a notes pocket to the wallet.

Have a look and see what you think...

Don't you think it will look really cool in combination with this bag?

    The wallet looks awesome, and I think you very clever for working out how to put in a notes pocket - ask me the next time we catch up about reducing bulk on heavy seems, I have a couple of tricks you might not know of. I love the ticking stripe bag also - very chic!!

  3. Very smart! I love the floral lining inside the stripey fabric for contrast too.

  4. They look terrific, what a great combination. I'd love a matching wallet for a favourite handbag. x

  5. Definitely a cool combination - the wallet looks like it would have been very tricky to make, you did a great job with it! Really like the fabric choice too :D
