Thanks to this tutorial - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=273186.0 by stitch 81, I was game enough to try to make a travel wallet.

Most of the pockets are crooked, and theres a bit at the top where the stitching has come undone, and I stiched too far over the top of the ticket pocket, but other than that I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

I also broke my first needle, which took longer than I thought it would so progress!

I like it. That outside fabric is great.

Oh, and go Aussie!

I love both fabrics. Great job. I haven't advanced that far yet in my sewing. I don't use patterns as I have an issue with rules and authority.  Grin

How difficult is it to put on snaps?

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

Thanks Smiley Once I'd put it together I wasn't too sure about the pink fabric, but it's ok for a first attempt, considering its only the second thing I've ever sewn haha.

The snaps were pretty easy, but the ones I used came with a kit, with a tool to bang them on with - which I got my husband to do because I have a thing with hammers and fingers. It looked easy from where I was standing!
