I have been on a quest to make the perfect wallet for a VERY long time now! I was very excited to see this amazing wallet pattern for sale as I've been admiring it for AGES!
I was hoping to have the pattern to play with on the March Break, but I was a dummy and had it shipped to my work address instead of my home address so I didn't get it until yesterday. So, last night I ran home from work and made a new wallet.
I made two BIG mistakes. The first one being I used fabric two fat quarters that I've been saving for a while now that I really liked. When will I learn???? When making something for the first time I should NEVER EVER EVER use fabric that I can't replace. Secondly, I didn't have any white velcro! What?!?!?!? I seem to remember thowing out a ball of tangled up velcro not long ago thinking that I had more. I didn't. What I did have was some terrible black VERY sticky velcro. I immediately decided to make the wallet with the sticky black velcro and call this a "prototype".
Well, the velco completely gummed up my machine. I finally cleaned up that mess but by now I knew this wallet would never be usable so I just kind of rushed through it, not being extra careful.
Here's the inside. I really botched that up. There isn't even enough room to put my cards in slots on the right side.
I've already cut out fabric for a second wallet and I plan to go get velcro today at lunch so I can work on it tonight.
I'm still so mad that I used those really pretty fat quarters!!! Live and learn.
