Patchwork Wallet


Thank you for the kind words about the { impossible quilt}. My w.i.p. projects are on going and I learn to set up a time to finish it! I work better with a schedule. I made another patchwork this weekend. It was fun to play with  new scraps/ colors. I added some new scraps into the bowl and got some new colors. This time, I made a patchwork style wallet.  I really like it! It is measured 8"x8" { open flat}. Two large pockets for bills and I added the inner zippered for coins. A few pockets for cards.  Lined with {Moda Love print in canvas weight} and Amy Butler's blue print { sorry I don't remember the name of the print} .

I love small project that I can finish over a weekend and additional day or two. It makes me feel more accomplished. I love how many of you have been playing with your scraps and make your own patchwork totes, bags, and pouches and lots more ! I love them all.  I love how one idea can be expended to many different ideas. I love how you come and stop by each day and just check out this space and keep me company!

so far so GOOD!

    1. I found the best time to play with scraps is when I accomplished some bigger project sewing or later night sewing! I love to see your patchwork style if you make one!! :) x
