Necessary Clutch Wallet

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.
