My Own Thing

I've been dreaming about making a wallet for a while know, but just recently had the guts to do one. So after ALOT of trial and error i've finally come up with this.



It has a change pouch, 2 money pockets, and 6 card pouches. I'm really happy with it but I still need practice with the bias tape (you can tell by looking at the bottom middle of the change pocket).



After realizing that I could do this, I decided that it couldn't be any harder to make my own purse as well. I was right, and this only took one try.



This next picture is just to give an idea of the shape.

That wallet looks great! Did you use a pattern or just make it up yourself? The style of it is perfect!

Both are awesome! You're so talented, Katelyn. If you're taking orders, I totally want one of the bags. Maybe more than one. It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas, you know. If you're interested in taking commissions, I'll pick out the fabrics and let you go to town. :)
