Fiona strikes again!08:00
That darned Fiona, she's always sticking her nose in where a new pattern is and subjecting herself to the torture of hand sewing!
I had the very great pleasure of testing the Greenbacks Wallet from Sew Sweetness which comes with three options.
|I used Cath Kidston Provence Rose in blue for the exterior, white binding and then a myriad of stash fabrics for the pockets/accordion and lining. The zipped pocket inside used to be a pink hankie. Thanks Ben!|
I thought the other two options were great though and I've got my sights set on the #1 option with card slots on the back and a zip pouch on the back.
|I chose to leave the card slots on the left undivided so that I could have some note and receipt storage. I'm terrible for carting a ton of receipts around with me!|
Then I got to the binding and I had to sew it by hand and it was awful and I almost lost my fingerprint on my right third finger. Then it was done and like they say the pain of childbirth does, the memory of the hand stitching faded into a memory and I was just so pleased with how it looked. (The pain of hand stitching wasn't to do with the pattern, it is just because I'm USELESS at hand stitching and really need to work on it)
|Great size for a clutch right?|
It's massive as a purse, it's far more the size of an organiser clutch and will happily fit my phone, receipts and as much cash as I don't have!
|See how large this is? It's almost as wide as my serger. There's not much I won't fit in here!|
Do you like to take your whole bag with you when you go out or do you shove as much as you can into your purse/wallet and just take that? I currently have cards, receipts, cash, tissues and phone in my old purse and it's really not that large!!
