so, as explained in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253696.0;topicseen i've been down for a couple of days...
anyways, i've been badly needing a new wallet, as my old one is tatternd, worn, dirty, and too big and bulky to fit in my back pocket.  the only reason i hung onto it for so long was because it had the "aum" symbol embroidered on it.  for reason of comparison, i give you the dingy old wallet:

notice the worn spot.

eew i hate velcro because hair gets in it and it looks gross...

that stupid zippered pocket went all the way to the end, it was really not useful.
aaand here's the new wallet!

hand embroidered myself!

outside of wallet, it's similar to the tea wallet, but the button is on the back so it won't take away from the embroidered front, and i added a huge outer wallet for money

action inside shot...kind of nervous about the cards falling out, so i put the really important ones in the big outer pocket

the outer pocket. guys, i literally had *no money* to demonstrate here! lol
i'm so proud of myself, it turned out way better than expected! and it's a lot slimmer, so that now i don't have to have my boyfriend hang onto my wallet when we go to concerts or bars! huzza!
as always, thanks for looking!

Tea wallet into a card wallet, brilliant!  The embroidery is also awesome.

Hey.  That looks great.  I did one of those signs on a blanket that me and my neighbors made for a friend.  It is made out of sweaters.  I dont know if you could do it on a wallet though might be too bulky.  Or maybe use a very thin sweater.  It was kind of tricky though.

the embroidery looks so pretty and i really like the fabric used on the inside! i was afraid of cards falling out of the wallet i had made too....mainly because one did fall out and i almost lost my debit card  Roll Eyes  all i did to fix  it though was put a small velcro strap going over the card slots... it really didnt add bulk and it sure makes me feel better!

It's amazing, I can't believe you did that by hand. A friend of mine has a tattoo of that symbol.

And of course you have no money to demo it with, you go to Valpo, they take all our money.  Smiley
