That is what it's been around here, between the company we've been getting, working out in the gardens, tho I have been managing to get in some sewing time. My cousin came to spend the weekend with us. It was fun, we thrifted, crafted and just spent the time catching up, it's been awhile since we've done that. Growing up I spent a lot of time at her house, probably more time there than at my own house.
I thought to make a new wallet, so I dug out the pattern that I had origianlly found over at Thimbleanna's blog a few years back. I did make it and thought I had posted about it but I just can't seem to find it, oh well. I had some batik fabric scraps leftover from another project and no I just can't seem to throw them away. But hey, someday they do come in handy.
I added a check book cover since at times I still need a check. Living in our area there are some businesses that don't take debit/credit cards, so I need a check, and there's that awesome garage sale stop where I may not have any cash on me where they'll take a local check.
I added a bit heavier interfacing so that the pockets and check book cover aren't so flimsy, and I added velcro in a few spots that my stuff tended to fall out of in my other wallet.
It looks bulky but it really isn't and it's surprisingly light, even with all my junk in it. Now I'm off to work on the other project that I've started, and it has to do with the fabrics below.
