Inspired from Napkittens pattern. This is for my mother in law and I almost kept it for myself!

It took me a week of frequently interrupted sewing from my 7 month old and 2.5 year old but I triumphed! YAY I am proud. I had a hard time trying to machine stitch the binding for the outside so I hand sewed it and I have raw fingers and I must admit I am not that satisfied but I cannot sit for another hour trying to fix it, my fingers have taken enough abuse for now.
C&C appreciated!

Sorry about your fingers but it is a lovely wallet and the fabric you used is beautiful.

Thank you both very much. I made another today for myself. I had originally put bright blue binding on it, thinking it would bring out the blue in the fabric... big mistake. My husband said it looked like a wallet from The Simpsons. I like the pink binding but I just might have to try and make my own binding of the same fabric for a more cohesive look...
