Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

A Few More Fun Little Wallets

Over the weekend I made a few more little fun wallets for Christmas gifts, and the more I make them, the more I think everyone I know should have one! (see the original one and the pattern here) They really are the perfect size for cash, credit cards and business cards, but what I like most is they are the perfect size to fit in your back pocket without being too bulky. They are also the perfect size for my nieces to carry as well.

I already envision a few gift cards being given away in these this holiday!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Definately a great going to try them myself over the weekend :)

  2. These are sooo cute! Love the colors and patterns. Hope you link them to my Pink Hippo party @

  3. What a great way to give cash/gift cards! I always feel so impersonal when I give those as gifts, but this would be a way to say I did take time out to think of the person!

    Thanks for linking with Sugar & Spice.

  4. These are adorable! They would be so fun to use for giving gift cards or cash. I might just have to make some. :)
