Mini Travel Wallet with Zipper Closure

When you get new zipper foot, you have to make another zip around wallet. This time I made mini travel wallet!


Well, I don't like changing foot while I am sewing, but sometimes it's worth the effort. Trust me. It's easier to sew zip around wallet with zipper foot. 
And unlike domestic foot, industrial machine foot is slimmer which make sewing zipper is smaller space is much easier. 
It turned out neater even though I still don't like the foot changing part. LOL. 

 I really love this! The wallet turned out super cute. What do you think?
The wallet is available in  HERE (psst it's free shipping!) and if you want to try making the wallet yourself, you can get the pattern in my ETSY shop or my WEBSHOP. The original pattern is without the zipper though. but you can follow the tutorial HERE

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Sewing

Scooter Family Travel Wallet with Zipper Closure



Don't you love this cute scooter print? I got the fabric from Indonesia few summers ago! i knew then this fabric would be great for travel wallet. Don't you think? I decided to go minimalist with color and I love how this turned out. 


I am thinking of making improvement for the family passport wallet pattern. I tried to record a video as I was working on this wallet, but it was not so good. I will try to record another one when I make my next wallet. I still have the video , if any of you need it urgently, you can email me after you purchase the pattern.  

Meanwhile this wallet is ready to ship and  available on my Etsy shop. If you want to make your own you can get the pattern on my Webshop or Etsy  You can find the additional Zip Around Closure tutorial HERE
I hope I can post the video soon. Now I gotta go. Today is the eldest son second concert with Cadenza! We're all so excited. 

Until next time,

Have a nice day!

Small Travel Wallet and Social Media

I made another mini travel wallet from THIS Pattern and this time with the improvisation based on this tutorial. 
This is one of my fave combo. I am using handloom and block print fabric here. If you have not tried the handloom a.k.a shot cotton, maybe you should. They have unique colors! Like the blue fabric in this wallet, has a shade of purple.

Anyway, recently I read this blog post at Sew Can Do where she was saying she's leaving social media. I had my share of problem with Facebook and Instagram too, like I wrote in this Post. I absolutely agree with her that we're at their (i.e social media) mercy. We never know when our page will suddenly disappear without rhyme or reason. As always, it's better not to put your eggs in one basket, right? 

saw this on Facebook :P

What do you say? What's your experiences with social media? Let me know in the comment below! 

Until next time,

Happy Sewing
