~Handmade Shabby Chic Wallet~

Dear friends,
It has been awhile since I posted any crafting or sewing projects. Well, I have been crafting and sewing, but I never had the chance to take pictures and show you. :)

I am really happy to have my sewing and crafting corner - it's a place where ideas pop in my mind– my happy place.

Today I finished making a wallet. I own a small purse and big wallet which bothers me... so, I decided to make my own, smaller wallet!

 

This is what I used: fabric, thread, cardboard, double sided tape, lace and ribbon.

 

First, I designed the shape. I wanted it to look like my passport case so I drew the shapes on the cardboard and cut them out.

Second, I covered the cardboard with fabric using double stick tape and combined both sides together. This is where I added the pockets too.


Now, after you put them together, sew the edges with ribbon. 



I also created a flower design from lace for the latch to keep it closed.
 

After sewing the sides, I put lace around the ribbon.


All done!

 
  

I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful.  

~Let all that you do be done in love~
