I needed gifts for lady friends and family, so whipped up these wallets using scraps from my vintage and random fabric stash. They came together really fast and it was fun putting together rad fabric combo's. I think they turned out pretty great, the snaps making them look super professional. Each recipient has remarked on how often they get lovely comments at checkouts!  Cheesy





I used different coloured or pearly snaps to close them.



Places for cards, cash and a coin department on the inside. Inside is also where the colour combos come alive.



Thanks for looking  Cheesy

thank you both,  Smiley
sylrpt- the shape was based on a wallet I had several years ago, and loved to death. I made a few tweaks and drafted up my own pattern for it. And the fabrics are what bring them alive, I think  Cheesy
Thanks again.
