This week I made a Necessary Clutch Wallet. This is probably my 7th one and they get a bit easier for me each time. I will admit I find them a little frustrating, but I love the final product, so I guess the struggle is worth it. 🙂
This time I used my favorite Cotton and Steel canvas fabric for the flap but kept the rest of the wallet pretty basic, mostly black. This kitty makes me smile every time I see it. I have this fabric in both colorways and I keep a small stash of it.
I find the final step in the pattern to be the hardest part (creating the accordion). This last wallet was better at this part (no cursing!!), so maybe I have rounded the corner!
I reference this Youtube tutorial video by Janelle MacKay every time I make one of these. She has helpful hints on ways to make things a bit easier.
This wallet is available in my Etsy shop.
I also worked a bit on my June Quilt. I have a bunch more to sew on that, but it’s coming along.
