Happy hump-day ya’ll! I hope your week is going well and you are accomplishing items on that big to-do list we all have. Today I’m taking a break from my sewing studio to share with you a new e-pattern release from Sara over at Sew Sweetness! It’s called the Greenbacks Wallet Trio and I was fortunate enough to test her new pattern. I made wallet #2, which has a front closure, side swivel clip and wrist strap and a cell phone pocket on the back. This pattern is for the intermediate sewist and can be completed in a short amount of time.
I used a Heather Bailey print for the exterior and quilted it to a layer of SF101 and automotive headliner. A cute swivel clip and strap attaches to the side making it easy to slip over your wrist if you’re on the go. I also used a velcro closure for the wallet and phone pocket instead of a snap because I tend to cram my wallets full and wanted a wider secure area. Are they not cute?!?! I am really enjoying my new wallet – plus it gives my old wallet a much needed break!!
Inside there is plenty of room for credit cards, a checkbook and other card goodies you carry around. If you head over to Sara’s site today, you will find more information about the pattern requirements, purchasing instruction. Plus, you’ll get to see more testers and their interpretations. Everyone did such a great job!
What I love about Sara’s patterns are that she includes lots of visual guidance. Also, her directions are always very clear and easy to follow leaving no doubts. Here is a shot of the back so you can see the cell phone pocket
If you’re looking for a new challenge or need a new wallet, give this pattern a try. you won’t be disappointed! I am getting ready to get more of this Heather Bailey print to make the other 2 wallets in this pattern. I do love my coordinating pieces!!
I am now taking the rest of the day to play catch-up around the house. Hubby has the day off, so we went out to lunch alone *YAY!* and I’ll be cleaning up from family visitors as well as editing pictures from O’s band concert last night. He is 1st chair trombone in the 6th grade and has remained in 1st chair all year, so we are very proud of our young man. Last night was a big one for him.
