I needed a new wallet....

 My old one was OLD. I've had it for 15 or 16 yrs! It was getting worn out, and I really needed a new one.

 Sitting like this, it's 8x4.5". I didn't want one that folds up small. I needed one that wont get lost in a diaper bag, come next Spring :) You all know how when you carry a diaper bag, you don't want to have to carry a purse too. So this will fit right in, and it wont get lost.

It's 8x14" when open like this.

 It has plenty of room for my cards, a zip pocket for cash/change and a hidden pocket for my checkbook.

I still have to put some velcro on the tip of the point and the back of the zip pouch, so it stays shut. But I didn't have any, so made one without.

I am not sure what I'm going to work on today. Maybe it's a good time to start getting some 'C' presents made.

What are you up to? Do you have a list of 'C' presents that you need to make too?

Have a great day!!

I'm linking up with Jenna this week, at SewHappyGeek. Thanks Jenna!
And with H&M at QuiltStory, thanks H&M!

PS, don't forget to drop me a comment and leave me your name, if you're a wantobe quilter! LOTS of prizes you could win over at the Stash, come August.

  1. Love your new wallet! Making one just the way you like it is so much nicer than hunting thru stores with the resulting frustration of not finding what you like!

    As for "C" presents... the big kids are getting quilts but I'll have to ask the parents of the little kids (grandchildren) what they would like... they all got quilts last year.

  2. Cute! And so funny seeing paper money! (we have plastic notes). Did you know your tab up the top says "lone sar"?
