So I participated in the last round of the inchie exchange and had some cool inchies to start my collection. Now I've got a bunch of inchies and I don't know what to do with them.  I wanted to make something useful with them that I can use most of the time.  I made a extra large folio wallet with an inchie cover!

I found this cool Heatnbond Vinyl that rules! and I used it to adhere and protect the inchies on the cover.  Then I winged the inside.  There are places for credit cards, notes, money, etc.

Back


Inside


I would do a number of things differently on the next one but I love it just the same!


Here is the link to the Inchie Exchange Swap Gallery Round 2 that I participated in for those of you interested in what inchies are.

Thanks!  Steal away.  I totally love this idea.  I may just have to join a few more inchie swaps to make a purse.

Not a stupid question, I had no idea a few months ago.  They are 1 inch square works of art.  Similar to Artist Trading Cards only much smaller.

I see, thanks for the explanation.  I goggled it and was amazed by all the inchies I saw!  I can see that making them can become very addicting!!

OMG - my heart just jumped when I saw your inchie fabric.  I've never heard of this before.  Talk about a one-of-a-kind fabric! 

Your wallet is wonderful.  Don't get me wrong.  I really like your wallet.  But your fabric is to fantastic.  I'm off to google inchie.  Thanks for that tip.

Now - What is this Heat N Bond Vinyl stuff you are talking about?  You've got me interested.  Don't stop now.
