Just wanted to add another wallet I made yesterday; it's slightly bigger than the corduroy wallet 'cause it has bias binding, but I still like it. Very sturdy 'cause I used Wonder-Under and fused the tie-dyed pieces to just white pieces. (Would've used regular interfacing but I don't have any.  Undecided )



I started with a pair of white pants and fabric dyes and ended up with a terribly stained carpet, a really messy bedroom floor and regret that I didn't dye some more fabric yellow for the binding. Sad (There weren't enough for one outer edge.) Oh, and the wallet. Tongue The tie-dyeing didn't come out so bright and colourful but I'm okay with that. Ignore the sloppy stitching, please! Grin

---------------



I originally just posted my pictures in the A Bag a Month Craftalong thread, but fort_loop asked for a tutorial, so here it is.

My wallet is on the messy side and I'm sure there are better ways to sew on the pieces, so forgive me for any mistakes and such in the tut. Smiley

I'm aware that Craftster resizes big images, so to read the text properly, just click here to open the image in a new window.



Let me know if you have any questions!

Great wallet and tutorial but do you have it posted anywhere else that would be easier to read? The print is so small I can barely read the instructions. Also, do you have the conversions to inches? Thanks!

Is it really too small to read, even full-viewed? Undecided I've already saved the text in the image itself, so it would take lots of work to re-type them as real text, sorry. And nope, I think the world should use centimetres, I find it difficult to read like, 1/8" or 1/16" on the ruler. Lips sealed

Thank you soooooo much.  I really appreciate it.  When I get time to make one (which I certainly will even if it is a couple of months from now after my second child is born and I get out from under some other deadlines) I will post or pm you with pics.

Yes, it is really that small even on full view. Some of the text is blurry and I can not read it. I guess I will have to learn how to use cenimeters. Thanks anyways. I really like the wallet but will not be able to make it.

Hmm?  For what it is worth, I am not having any problem seeing the text in the images.  Maybe it makes a difference what browser you use.

I'm pretty sure the illustrations are at least helpful. Cry In any case, I think I'll PM you with the smallish text, what's the use of tutorials if people can't follow it, right?

Alright, I enlarged the whole image by 25%. Grin

Thank you for the tutorial. I'll have to try it soon.
People that have trouble viewing it, can save the tutorial on their computer and make it appear bigger.
