For today, I decided to grab that scrap of liberty fabric from the Go To Sew Mystery Box and use a tutorial from one of my favorite bloggers.
The fabric scrap is cut on the bias which is perfect for making bias tape. I considered using it for garment sewing but it was such a small piece. Turns out that that small piece was plenty of bias tape for the Zippy Wallet tutorial from Noodlehead!
I am sure the name of the wallet refers to the fact that it zips up, but it could also refer to how fast this comes together. When I was done, I looked up at the clock a little stunned. It was a fast and fun sew!
And, as with any of Anna’s tutorials, the results were wonderful.
My only regret is that I used a fashion zipper with thick teeth for such a small wallet (slightly smaller than the size of my hand).
…but I just couldn’t resist those polka dots!
I was also speeding along so fast in my sewing that I didn’t notice that I put the back liner on the outside of the wallet, until the last step. Luckily it was also duck cloth, so I left it. I like the extra detail it adds. Happy mistakes are the best!
And hey… the wallet sort of looks like a little camera, don’t you think? Love that.
