No. 13 of my Finish Along List for Q2 is finished!
Once upon a time… or let’s phrase it like this: Do you remember my Christmas market? It was on the 16th of December. So it was more than four months ago that I promised to sew a wallet for my co-worker Diana.
I am so sorry, it took me so long. Thank you for all your patience! xo
Her order was to be a pink version, fabrics to be picked personally from my stash. Finding a date for that took a while but finally happend on the 29th of January. And the pink idea went down the drain as she decided on a grey outside but colorful inside. Isn’t it fun to see that tiny sneak peak of the color?
At first I was not convinced. But I love the result. Come take a look for yourself:
She picked a turquoise solid (Kona cotton) for the main interior. And two fabrics for the dividers. One pink “Diving Board” Alison Glass and one black-and-white with stars (sorry no fabric info).
The inside, small zipper is grey like the outside. The outside zipper is a wide version in white-metallic. It looks fancy and sofisticated with the grey outside fabric. Btw it is a plastic version. It is still a pain in the… to sew together but I would definitely not do it with a metal one.
If you are interested in sewing your own, you can find the pattern here. It is in German; no idea if it was ever translated to English.
So finally a project to cross of my WIP list. Such a great feeling :)
Hope you are all having fun and making progress! Best wishes

It’s a beautiful wallet Melanie. Don’t feel bad about the lateness . I owe my co worker a secret gift since January.
Very nice finish! She picked pretty fabrics and I love the zipper pull.
Not only is this adorable… it looks SO PROFESSIONAL!!! I’m swooning over here!

Awesome wallet!!! I’m sure it is worth the wait. I love the colors. And the sewing is perfect.
Wow, das ist wirklich ein tolles Ergebnis! “Wie gekauft” ;-) Klasse!

Yes, yes, yes — I remember your first wallet with this pattern. This second one is just as lovely — I know your colleague will use and love it! (P.S. Where did you find the zipper you used for the exterior? The pull is pretty cool.)
Well, I am partial to the inside becaus you know that I am partial to color ; ) sometimes it takes a while to get motivated to get started on a project, but once you’ve given yourself the push, it comes together rather quickly. See, zippers get easier over time, right?
