Wallet for Granny

I am very behind in sharing some of the things that I've been making (I'm blaming the Hollyburn Sew-Along, but realistically I'm just slack!). Anyway, better late than never, right? Today I wanted to share another wallet, this one a Christmas gift for my Gran.

After seeing the one I made for myself, my Gran expressed an interest in having one herself. So we went through her fabrics for her to choose what she'd like her wallet to look like.

We found this lovely shell fabric, which is an African fabric with a sort of waxy finish on it. As Christmas approached, I selected some coordinating fabric for the lining and set about making the wallet.

This time I interfaced a lot more of the pieces, as my first wallet turned out to be a bit 'floppy'.

Second time around it was a lot easier than the first, and I'm very happy with how it turned out; look at that super top-stitching! (I know, I'm so modest!)

Now to make myself a new one too...


  1. Noice fabric choices - and I do love a bit of topstitching :) I'd be very surprised if she didn't like it!


Comments make me smile :)
