Today I made a very much needed new wallet for myself.
I used the "Betty" wallet pattern from the book
"Bags - the Modern Classics" by Sue Kim.
So many cute bags of all sizes!
All the pattern pieces are full sized so you
don't need to enlarge them.
I only wish the patterns didn't overlap
so you could cut them out without having
to use tracing paper.
The pattern was FTS (fun to sew) and went
together in less than 2 hours start to finish.
I added the little cross stitch piece by Sue Hillis designs
that I just finished stitching.
I used a clear button on the front because
I didn't want to take away from the cute cross stitch.
I realized that I didn't take a photo of the backside...
it's done is black canvas.
I stayed true to the pattern except
that I added medium weight fusible interfacing
on the pockets for some extra "body".
I also added an additional shorter
pocket (the gingham) for my coupons :)
And lastly I added the elastic
for my pen.
I don't know about you,
but I always need my pen!
So here's it is all filled up :)
I can't wait to take Betty shopping ......
I do have some JoAnn's coupons in there.....
