New small bifold wallet


I finished this small bi fold wallet yesterday. I kind love it! I was supposed to work on a custom order but when I saw the fabric suddenly got this idea to make a small wallet! 





I am currently using it to see how it will hold up. I do that a lot with my products. I already noted a few things that I need to work on before I start making a few for the shop.

During the Ramadan, I don't sew so much. But I love to sew in between all the activities that's going on. I also bought new fabrics!! We went to shop for Eid last Sunday. We supposed to buy kurta pyjama for hubby and the boys when hubby decided to stop at Linen Club shop! The shop has been on my list to visit for a long time. Although I passed the shop every week, but I never stopped. Well, everything happens at its own time, right?!

The shop has all kind of linens!! and it's expensive LOL. I asked the shop keeper if I can buy half meter cuts. In few fabric shops here, they have a minimum cut. When he said yes I quickly picked up a few. 

Aren't they gorgeous? 

my true story! LOL
That's all my story for this week! I'll be busy making cookies for Eid in the next few days :D 

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a nice weekends

Bifold Wallets

Hello,

I've been very busy with fabrics in the past few weeks. I tried to destash some of my stocks by making them into fabric bundles and fabric duos. And in the process, loads of inspiration going through my mind and one of them was these kawaii (cute) bifold wallets


Matryoshka Bifold Wallet
 I used the pattern from Napkitten Pattern in Etsy. The pattern is a bit confusing at first since it does not have a template. I decided to make templates based on the measurement given.

After you get the hang of it, it sort of addictive. I'm happy because I can use some of the fabrics from my scrap bins. Leftover binding from my passport holders,


While making these wallets, I realized how much I enjoyed making small things from fabric remnants. Sometimes, we tend to be carried away by the current trend, that we lost our own focus. 



I realized I love making small things or something bigger with more details.  I find it more challenging and it gives me immense satisfaction when I can complete it.

I like to try a new technique or new materials since in India we don't have fancy bag making materials. I like to experiment and to see how's the result.

 The bifold wallet, even though it's quite small, it has bill compartment, slots for few cards, slip pockets and coin pouch. I am currently using one. It fits nicely into my fave sling bag.
