I had some candy cane striped bias tape that was dying to be used and a wallet that was falling apart.  I cranked this out, a simplified version of an earlier prototype that never really worked out for me.




The black is just quilting cotton with heavy interfacing on the outside piece and light interfacing on everything else.  I didn't put a coin pocket on it because I was unsure of my ability to work with a zipper and still get the straight lines I wanted, plus I wanted it to be pretty compact.  I think I'm going to make a separate coin purse.

I want to put a stencil on it, but I don't know what to do.  A skull and crossbones would fit the design, but I'm not enough of an "arrrg!  pirates!" kind of lady to print it on something I wear every day.

I LOVE IT!! That bias tape makes the wallet totally pop! I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Smiley -x-

That's really cute.  I like the candy stripe bit.  I think you should stencil a piece of candy on it.
