What’s old is new again

Last year I played around with making my own wallet after seeing a ‘Golden book’  coin purse in a local shop. I had some fabulous old sewing patterns and loved one so much, the thought of carrying it around with me inspired my sewing pattern wallets. I have given many away as gifts and even sold some to a fabulous shop at the top of the hill where I live. They do have a relatively short life compared to the Oroton wallet that did me well for a couple of years, but when they have gone past their use by date, I simply find another pattern and make a new one! This one was a Christmas present…

The pattern envelope is sandwiched between clear plastic and stitched. They aren’t entirely waterproof…but then again I never take my wallet swimming!
