This is a set I made for a friend who is an oncology nurse as well as proud mother of a soldier. I had picked out numerous breast cancer fabrics and she chose this one:)

This set took approximately 4 weeks of on and off sewing while trying to finish all my holiday sewing list as well as enjoying my husband having some time off from doing the Drill Sergeant thing:)

The wallet was my biggest challenge. I've been trying to use new construction techniques so I can avoid the bulky seams which in turn makes for easier toptitching which I'm sure we've all battles at some point lol! Overall I like the way it turned out but there are still some things I'd do differently:/

Ah well...try, try again right? Wink

Hope you like!

All the pieces are great! The pink and camo are so cute together. Smiley

Great set - nice combo of material to fit the interests of your friend!  Question:  is that your design for the wallet or a commercial one?  Good job for sure!

Thank you both!

And yep, my design for the wallet although I used a clear I.d. Window tutorial I found here on craftster:)
