I had some time in the past weeks to do a bit of sewing. I did some projects for Christmas gifts. But, I also found time to sew some wallets for me.
As you can see I used Essex yarn dyed linen blend in black for all of them. I really love the texture of this fabric. I decided to do the zip pocket pouch pattern by Michelle Patterns as I did back in March. I did one for my loyalty cards and one for someone else who requested one. On mine, I added a key ring to hold my growing collection of mini-cards. I combined the linen with some Oval Elements from Art Gallery and with a print from the Glimma collection by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics. On the second, I used two prints from the Lantern Bloom collection by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller.
The last wallet is based on a retired Michelle patterns. I thought it was perfect to hold my business cards and the ones from the Montreal MQG. I only omitted the flap closure. I sew the magnets in each of the pockets instead. The print is Tree Rings by Martha Negley with some Kona in purple for the lining. I just love this print.
At the same time as I was doing the wallets, I prepared all the fabrics to sew a Sidekick tote using the pattern by Anna from Noodlehead. I just finished it yesterday. I’ll try to show somes pictures in the coming days.
