Swoon Patterns Pearl Wallet Clutch
For this one, I wanted to try using a vinyl tab, because I made this wallet to match the Tansy Zippered Tote, which has quite a bit of vinyl. I failed miserably at just using the stabilizer pattern piece as a template for my vinyl tab and having exposed edges. I just couldn't get my pieces to line up nicely during sewing. So I cut one piece of vinyl and one piece of interfaced cotton, and continued as directed in the pattern. I love how it turned out and suggest that method for others. I think compared to my first Pearl with just the cotton tab, this one looks more professional.
Here are the items I made with a few prints from Elixir:
I had so much fun making this quick pencil case from Anna Graham's new book,Handmade Style. It was easy to follow and I got to use 3 different coordinating prints. Anna of Noodlehead has loaded this book with great projects; check it out!
