With a trip to the rainy Pacific Northwest looming, I wanted to make some quick items.

First was a wallet. I love these simple little wallets, but the one I have is falling apart and made of cotton, which would never dry if it got wet. So I made several of these for my sweetie and me.

Then I made gadget bags to protect my gadgets. One is for my phone and the other is for my book reader. All from left over ripstop and nylon camping fabric. Hence the green and brown. I made a bunch of camping bags several years ago.

Wow, great work! They turned out really well.

Yeah, water protection is never a bad idea around here. Enjoy your trip!

Great items. The wallet is my favorite. I like the rainbow stripes you added, it makes them more appealing.
I am thinking of making a wallet for myself too but i keep hoping I will find one in store. i don't like sewing zippers. In case I try it, I have a question. Did you put something inside the fabrics of the wallet to make it stiffer?

Those are really neat and practical.  I love the rainbow embellishment. It just makes them.

The green nylon fabric is pretty substantial, so I did not add any lining. I also wanted lightness and easy dry. It really depends on the fabric. Many ripstop nylon fabrics are pretty light, I might use some kind of liner then.

Maeing your own means you can customize to your needs. I love mine!
