Handmade Wallet again

My friend's daughter is cyclist and she's got few medals up her sleeves already
One day the mommy saw my wallet and asked if I have bicycle print
I said of course I do {see, this is why I need to buy certain fabrics}

After pulling out a bunch of fabrics to match, I came up with this one


I add a little hand embroidered monogram there



and since my previous wallet was taken by my dear sister 
I need to make one for my self


Finally I got to use my linen! 
I bought FQ bundles from Etsy few months ago


I'm quite happy with the result

I love to keep my debit and credit cards in the zipper pocket
I feel safer that way ^_*




I remember a friend recently complaining about her work 
she was not quite happy with her work
even though I told her, she's done very well
considering she just picked up sewing

Well, for me, HANDMADE should LOOK handmade
 all the imperfections will make it more special

Btw, did you notice the binding?
I just recently decided to learn to make a proper bias binding
I always thought it's tedious to cut diagonally and sewing all those strips together
I googled and found several tutorials 
but I love this tutorial on you tube



2 things you must REMEMBER while making bias binding 

1. spray starch your fabric before hand. This will help you while you run it through the bias maker. and since bias cut fabric tends to stretch, the starch will help you to control it.

2. Mark it properly 

And here's what I got 


So, when you're not in the mood to sew
why not trying this one
this surely save you a lot of time

Wallets available for custom order at CHEZVIES

Until then

Happy Sewing
