Get Carded wallet #8

Yes, one more wallet. (You didn't think I'd been cured of my addiction, did you?) In case you didn't notice, I hadn't made one for Miss Courtney yet! Now that would never do. One for her was always in the plan, and I figured it would make a good Easter gift for her. Here it is, in the perfect fabrics for a fellow kitty-lover (thanks again, Cindy!):

There's even a kitty hiding inside the pleat!

Although it's hard to tell from this next photo, I made the strap a couple of inches shorter... for her smaller wrist.

She spent the day with me yesterday, since she had no school because of their Easter break. So here she is with HER wallet, which she was absolutely delighted with!

I gave it to her on Sunday, and she carried it with her for the entire afternoon. She brought it along yesterday, and she had really loaded it up!

It was stuffed... with cards, paper money and coins!

I thought a fun project for us to work on would be to make her an "official" driver's license to put in the ID pocket. She thought that was a wonderful idea, and here she is, flashing her brand new ID:

I copied the essential details from my own driver's license, so it's very authentic-looking. Well, except for the background image (which took quite awhile to choose the 'perfect' one). :) We took a new photo especially for her license, and we weighed and measured her, too. We even laminated it! Here's a closer look at her "official" new driver's license! (Forgive the sloppy editing out of too-personal information.) 

Have you ever looked that good in your driver's license photo?!

We had lots of fun working on the license, and I was extra-happy to see how delighted she was with it all!

Fantastic. And I love the signature eye photo. :)

Love it! Now to teach Kate how to make her own imitation-credit cards and DLs so she can fill hers!

Love it! Fabric is great too. Is it quilters cotton? Not home dec heavy weight cotton. It is also the best drivers license photo I've ever seen.

Thanks, ladies! Yes, it's quilters cotton. I think home dec weight would be too heavy for these little wallets, as there are some very thick seams with many layers to sew through.

That is so cute! I always really liked both of those fabrics.

Thanks, Cindy! The fabrics couldn't have been more perfect for her. :)
