Thank you!  Grin She picked a few of the fabrics and the color scheme so I can't take all the credit  Tongue 

I didn't use a pattern, just made it up as I went along, using my checkbook for reference to make sure it fit.  I'm not sure I'm crazy about the long strap, I like the look, but maybe just should've added the stripe and had a shorter strap. 

I used a lightweight interfacing on each piece which made it stiffer but not bulky.  The edges are zigzagged... a LOT.

Love all the details. I like the idea of the long strap wrapping around the wallet. Your choice of fabrics is excellent. Love all the contrasts and the little details like the zig zag stitch. You should sell them! Or maybe you are?

Dont worry I'm not stalking! haha Wink.. The wallet it super cute!!.. as all of them are!.. Why not just zig-zag the stripe down and use the end for a fold-over shortie strap closure?.. Looks great though! I want to be your friend too!!

Hey you stalker you  Cheesy Thanks!  I would zigzag the stripe but the way I did it I've have to take the strap off and turn it around.  Just doesn't work out the way that I did it.  There was no method to my madness... which is how I ended up with a weird wrappy strap  Cheesy

I am not usually a fan of cloth checkbook covers, BUT yours looks fantastic. Not floppy looking or bubbly, you did a great job.
