I have been lurking for some time now and decided it's time I actually post something.

I always end up having to make last minute gifts, so I figured I'd try my hand and this wallet making business. This is a present for my friend Natalya. She and I share a love for photography so when I saw this pin up girl, I knew it was the perfect thing for the wallet.

Inside



This was much simpler than I thought it would be, and although I'm not completely happy with it I think it's a pretty decent first attempt.
I need to find a better way to finish it and hide the thread, but other than that I think it's aye-okay.

I love retro prints!  Did you print in on paper and layer it between clear and white PVC?  Your wallet is so well made, it looks very professional.

Thank you.
I printed it on matte photo paper and sandwiched it between two squares of clear vinyl.
