Tempting Fate

I have owned the same lime green fossil leather wallet for over 10 years. i have tried at various times to use a different wallet but i have the worst luck, having lost 2 of them. i'm probably dooming myself to failure, but i am seriously sick of staring at that bright green color. so i made a new one.
Little Charmer Wallet
I used the Little Charmer Wallet tutorial. i mostly followed directions except that my tab is wider and not angled. the wallet is a little bit larger than ideal but it's a fine size to carry in a purse. i could have altered the dimensions of course but i was lazy.

i went with a grellow color scheme. i've been collecting gray and yellow fabrics for a long time now to make a quilt but i have yet to actually do anything ambitious with them. i used some of my most hoarded fabrics, including some FMF, it's a hoot, echo, the little bit of AH birds that i have left, and my spoonflower honey bears.

Cross your fingers for me that i hold on to this one. i'm linking this up to the My Precious QAL. one of these days i will actually make my gray and yellow quilt.

  2. It is such a fun wallet. I'm glad you used so many fun little bits! And I love those honey bears, by the way. I never thanked for the fun scraps you sent with the Polaroid blocks! Thank you!
