Six wallets finished!

                                  These are now for sale in my Etsy.. !!!!
                                          Got a favorite team???

                                         Or something cute or manly??
                                      phewww I got these done fast! lol

These wallets are my own pattern. I always hated on a hand made wallet how you fold it flat and it all bulky and wonky.. I added 3 rows of stitches on the spine of the wallet.. And I double stitched around the whole thing to give it a bit of a professional look = D      

One day I want to make a PDF pattern of this and ..cough cough.. sell the pattern.. But we will see lol
They are really easy to make and the card slots as you can see are a bit deeper then others. The cards won't peek up above , as I had trouble with them falling out.. so now they stay snug inside the pockets.
 I tried to make a clear I.D. pocket on the bottom but it did not work out well and after I sewed them all up I had a brain fart.. just sew it down ON TOP of the finished card pockets, instead of as a pocket themselves.. get me? I will try it next time.

I made a Ipad / notebook case from Michelle's patterns , but still need to attach the buttons.. I LOVE all her patterns!!! I have several of them!

On my list to do in the near future is a Reversible Lunchtime Pouch by Projectsbyjane . I just bought this pattern and its on sale right now along with her other PDF patterns!  I own all but 2 of her patterns.. lol
Not sure how long her sale will be, so snap to it!
When I look at this bag I think Lego's for some reason!!! SOOOO I might have a idea for a little boy gift this year!!!

I think today I'm being so nice and advertising my favorite crafty people!!! Sasha over on Stitchedbysasha has added LOT of pretty things to her Etsy shop recently!!! Lots of nice eye candy over there! If you are knitter she sells knitting / project bags.. or they can be used for just about everything!

It must be the holiday season coming because I'm on a crack down to sew..My goal is to get every gift I'm making finished by the end of NOVEMBER!!!  I want to relax in December .................and make cookies and candy!!! hehehe

You know me, I can not post anything without a mention of my Z-bug, Zoey.  I like to think of this as a little journal for her to read someday years to come.. and laugh at herself..
But, me and Zoey was in the Dollar Store a few days ago.. I was looking in the clearance aisle.. (my fav aisle) and she was looking at some things on the bottom shelf. ... a few minutes later I heard her say.. Gramma.. do you need some lotion?? I wasn't thinking about what she actually asked.. so I said hmmm no Zoey we have plenty at home.. then I sort of looked down and saw her little hand filled with a BIG glob of lotion.. OHHH MY GOSH !! What else to do?? rub it all in.. her and me!!! LOL She was giggling so hard as I was rubbing it on her tummy and arms.. my arms. my face , ugh.. you get the picture.. I got to laughing as well.. I told her why did you do that?? She said.. it smells good!!! So needless to say we left there smelling very good!!.. Doug asked me if I bought the bottle.. I just blinked and
I guess I should of huh??? I was just ready to get out of that store.. lol


  1. Your wallets look perfect!!! I'm so happy you were able to list some items!!! I hope your sales role in quick =D I definitely think you should make a pattern for them to sell.
    OH MY GOSH!!! LOL!!! I could just imagine Zoey with a blog of lotion in her hands hehehe. She's so silly and so cute!
    Thank you for the shout out Suzee! I've been trying really hard to list one or two items a day.

  2. I've never had a brain fart! Your wallets look good. Looks like you're on a roll. When I buy wallets, I usually try to fit in my $50 bill because Singapore $50 is quite big. Thanks for mentioning my pattern! So are you saying in December you won't sew anything? Anything?

  3. You are such a clever wallet maker!!! So fun to make them in team fabrics!! That Zoey is so cute, I loved the story about the lotion.


Come on.. don't be shy.. leave a comment.. love to hear from you!
