Foxy Passport Wallet with curvy edges and Konmari Updates

Guwahati, Assam, India
Hello,

How's your week going on? My week's been pretty busy but in between I went to spa and pamper myself. The Marie Kondo book "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up"  has arrived and I'm currently reading it. I will finish the book and will plan my "konmari" move ^_^.  So far in my sewing room, I already put all my tools and hardwares in one corner. Arranging the fabric stash would be the tough part. I am thinking of destashing fabrics which does not spark joy anymore. So if you're in India and would love to get the first news of my fabric destash, make sure to join the group on Facebook or follow me in Instagram @chezvies_shop.

In the meantime, I finished this wallet yesterday. This is another take on my Passport Wallet pattern. I had this fox fabric for a while and I thought it will be a fun travel wallet.

New style Passport Holder

I combined it with  brown polka dots fabric. I always come up with one idea and I usually improvise as I go along. As I was cutting interfacing for the flap, I decided to make a curvy flap. It looked really good and I loved it.


Passport Card Holder

As for the card slot, I wrote a tutorial in this POST to get a patchwork style card slot.


And then as I was going to the binding part, I was in two minds- curvy edges or straight edges. I thought making bias binding was too much of work. But I wanted curvy edges, so I stopped working and went about doing other chores. 
In the evening I went back to my sewing table and decided let's make the bias! And it's so worth it!!
Travel Wallet

Upon reading Marie Kondo Books, I realized that, doing or keeping something that truly "spark joy" give us an immense happiness and satisfaction. With all the  instant updates we always see in social media, sometimes as a handmade maker, we feel rushed. We jumped to the rat race and forget to enjoy the process. If you've been thinking for decluttering your space (and life), you might love to read the book.. Yes I know, I've been thinking along the same line too "why do I need to learn to tidy up?" but after reading the book, there are a few things I learn, like "putting things away created the illusion that the clutter problem has been solved".  That definetely sound like me LOL. 


That's all for today. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy reading my post. Leave a comment if you'd like me to make video on bias binding. 

Until then,

Have a nice weekends,
