Get Carded Wallet #10

Jess received the package of all the Typography projects today. She had fun opening and examining everything, and besides all the stuff she'd seen and was expecting, she also found a little surprise!


I'd made her a couple of Get Carded Wallets before, but neither of them was a very good color to go with her new Sandra Saddle Bag, so I decided to make one to match it out of the scraps I had left. Now doesn't this look like the perfect set?


The inside matches the lining of the larger bag, although I had to use some of the main fabric for the center part because of the one-way design of the Lorem Ipsum fabric. It was a pretty quick item to cut out and sew, especially since I'd made 9 of them before and knew how things worked.


One of the things I like best about this wallet is that the credit card slots face the center, so that when the wallet is closed, there's no chance of the cards slipping out.

Now to use up some more of those Typography scraps. I already have a plan....

I love the pleated top of this wallet! Nice work :)

I am also very curious of your next projects: working with scraps must be an interesting challenge, to say the least.

Thank you, my friend! Yes, we'll see just how close I can cut the corners with those scraps. It's a fun challenge. ;)

Good job surprising Jess - kinda hard when you're putting her projects in blog posts. :) Love the little wallet and the creative use of scraps!

Thanks, Blue! Yep, as much as I wanted to show the wallet to everyone else, I had to contain myself till after Jess had received it. :)
