I picked up some scraps of fabric from the bulk bin at my local shop for $1 and wanted to see what I could make with them. Lots of hawaiian print. At first, I thought "pockets" since I'm really on a tote gig right now, but then I thought about wallets. So this is my attempt.

Plenty of room for cash, now if only I had some.



I forgot to take a before pic of the fabric, but here's the same fabric in black with the little piece I had left over.

I didn't have any snaps or velcro, so it's just a folder wallet for now with a piece of cardboard between the back and the cash pocket. It'll hold up for now. The pockets, which I didn't measure at all when I started are just the right size for all my cards. A lucky break there!

So what can you make with a $1.10 of fabric that is only 13"x17"? A wallet and still have some fabric left over! Cheesy

What a great way to use up extra fabric.  And I love that print...very cute!  Now what will you make with the other piece of fabric?  Smiley

Heh. Another wallet, I'd imagine. I have another Hawaiian print I could use it with for a bag, but the other one (that I have more of is a light teal blue) just wouldn't go with black. Perhaps a headwrap for my dreadlocks...

Oh the possibilities.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
