So cute! If I could minimize my purse inventory, those would be perfect Smiley It's nice to see your work again, I've missed your stuff Smiley

wisted! I love these! Although if i were to try to make one or something i'd want some sort of clear vinyl on the outside so that i could put my school ID in there and flash it easily when i go places where i have to show it, instead of digging for it. Otherwise i love the pandas!

THANK YOU ALL!!! I was expecting so many replies so soon.  Grin

Those are so cute!  Where'd you get the fabric?  I especially love the pandas

I got most of it either from Superbuzzy.com or through sellers on Etsy. I'm thinking I may need to get more!

Really cute! Your fabrics are adorable.

What are the dimensions of the wallet? Are they just big enough for cards? I need a wallet that can fit like 25 cards! Ha ha, but I have a tiny purse, so I need a tiny wallet. I haven't found one yet, and I'm too lazy to try and make one (isn't that horrible?).

I can certainly see why your friends wanted these. They seem to be a great size, with lots of room for what you need. And I think the name is so perfect!!

Yeah, I kind of left that out huh? Whoops!  They are 4 inches wide and 3 and a half inches tall. It really fits a lot. In fact, I have 8 cards, $17 in one dollar bills, $3 in quarters and 3 diaper coupons in mine right now, lol.

I love them! (And I love velcro Smiley )
Did you have some kind of tutorial? I'd love to make some myself. Smiley My wallet is on the verge of falling apart...

I made the pattern up as I went. I had some major trial and error going on. I plan to sell them, so I won't be making a tutorial. But if you really look at them, it's pretty easy to draft up. I tried making it the hard way when I started out, lol.

Again, thank you all. I appreciate the compliments. I am trying to get off my lazy butt and get back in creating again and responses like this fuel my fire!


Long live Craftster and the crafty-craftiness of its crafters!!!

lol they are adorable Smiley I've been working on a similar wallet, I attach a D-ring at the top of my purses for my keys and decided a while back I wanted a wallet to hang there too Smiley

Cute, cute, cute!

cute! I think we definitely could use a tutorial. Smiley  I love those fabrics too.

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

pretty much every single wallet / purse style has already been made somewhere (think how many commercial & independent designers, shops, stalls, catalogues etc there are out there!) - so unless it was the same fabric, same size & exactly the same style i doubt anyone can really say its 'theirs'

(same could be said about some clothes, but theres only so many variations on a small purse!)

**thats not meant to be read as a dig at you, its in response to you wondering if you have accidentally copied someones design!**

Gesh I could do with one of them,,
So embrassing when I have to dig in my bag for bus fare,,
No matter how small my bag is, it never fails

I love the Panda's
