How do you get more out of a pattern that you might be getting bored of? Alter it!

I have used the pattern for this wallet a bunch of times and changing the size really helped it to feel new again. It was much quicker to make this small one compared to the original, and also much cheaper since it only used a fraction of the fabrics.

It's roughly 4" wide by 3 3/4" tall, and I think it turned out adorable. Let me know what you think!

Thanks!

I've since made another wallet with a bunch of different changes.







It has a bunch of extra card slots on the flap, an extra divider, a windowed ID slot, a pocket on the back, and it closes with 2 snaps.

I made a blog post about it with a bunch more pictures here.
