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.

Front


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.

Stupid question though, what exactly is an inchie?  Huh
I'm assuming it's a 1 inch square?
Told you it was stupid!

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.

This looks great!  I've never heard of these inchies before, but now I'm intrigued!

I've been trying to work with heat and bond vinyl, but can't seem to find any stores that carry it.  Any suggestions on where to find it?

This is absolutely fabulous. Now I have to learn to sew so I can make this. I'm jealous of some of your inchies, too.
Great idea.

I really like the idea. I saw some great inchies here already and I was always like "what can I use them for?". I don't really like to make things that aren't useful. This is a great way to combine inchies with a function.
