scrappy wallet…

I’ve had the itch to sew again, finally
but I had no idea what I wanted to sew. 
then a friend suggested I make a wallet that matches my checkbook covers
so I got out my scrap tote.
yes I have a tote of scraps, 
you never know when you will need a small scrap! 
I used my actual wallet as a template/guide and just decided to wing it.
no pattern… no online tutorial.
I can not even tell you how proud I am of this baby.
It needs a little tweaking which I will do for my next one
yes I said next one
you need one to match every purse come on now! 
check it out! 

what more could a girl need?
A licence, debit card, and Biggby coffee card!
Is it not just the cutest thing. 
I am hoping to get a faster system down for these
and then add them to the shop!
