A pretty present

A friend had a birthday today. The other week she mentioned in passing that she liked the wallet that I made, and she wanted me to make her one. She wanted to pay me, and I scoffed at her and told her that I'd make her one for her birthday.

Before I made the wallet I had a quick chat with my friend. I came home and looked through the stash, and I saw THIS fabric. It was one of my first Euro fabric purchases, and I think it is perfect for a wallet. I love the colours and print. I wanted to keep the wallet for me which means it is perfect to give as a present to a good friend.

Channah, thank you! I used this pattern http://mein-liebstes.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html It's in German, but has lots of photos and Google Translate is pretty good.

Thanks for the link Sara. I know two wonderful teachers that I want to make wallet and bag sets for this year (yes I'm planning ahead) and this looks like the perfect wallet. Although maybe its just because its had your special touch?
