New wallet

I kept seeing this very cute wallet showing up in my Google reader, and I needed a new wallet.
My poor old Kate Spade wallet that I bought to match my very chic baby bag was showing its wear. Not surprising as it's 7 years old!

So I bought the e-book even though it's in German. Hey, I sew with German Farbenmix patterns, so I figured I could manage it. Plus the lovely Andrea told me that she would help me if I got stuck. In the end I muddled through with the excellent photos and my friend, Google Translate.

My next challenge was to pick fabrics. Initially I was thinking of some machine embroidery and then thought that I should keep it relatively simple the first time around, so I picked fabric that matches my El Porto bag.
