I've been doing some sewing with vinyl lately.  It took me a little bit to get the hang of it, but I think I'm getting there.  Most of the vinyl in these projects are remnants and all the cotton is from my stash.  The cotton in the wallets is interfaced with a medium weight fusible interfacing, the cotton in the purse is an upholstery weight fabric, also a remnant, so I didn't interface it.  I'd love to hear any feedback you may have. 

This checkbook folio was based off of this tutorial: http://elily00.wordpress.com/tutorials/wallet/

I modified the pattern for the billfold style wallet after making the checkbook folio:

And the pattern for the bag is my own, it's lined and closes with a magnetic snap.  I wish I'd thought to put pockets in, but maybe next time:

UPDATE: I made a third wallet last night.  This one holds a 5.5"x3.5" Moleskine notebook on one side and cash money on the other side.  Also with the change pocket and 4 card slots. 

I'd love to know what you all think about this.  Am I the only one who carries a Moleskine around all the time?

Honestly, that bag is gorgeous.  And I love the design of the checkbook wallet.  Great work.

I love the first wallet.  Was the tutorial easy to follow? I have been wanting to try it, just haven't had the time.
