very, very, very, VERY, very late

I joined a swap several months ago called the Scrappy Tidbits swap. We were grouped in fours, and you sent scraps to your other 3 partners. Then you make something with all of the scraps. I chose to make a wallet for each of my three partners, and I'm only 2 months late. I will never, I repeat NEVER sign up for a swap during the Christmas season again.

I found a great tutorial online for this quilted wallet at That Darn Kat. It was a little frustrating trying to figure out the credit card slots on the bottom, but I worked it out by the second one. I also sewed a right to a wrong side one time and almost threw the whole thing in the garbage. But in the end, I think they turned out rather cute. Except one is a little catywhompused, but I just think that adds to the homemade feel - that's what I'm telling myself anyway.

I actually didn't put any of my own fabric on the outside, but used bits and pieces of my three partners. Below is the inside. It has 10 credit card slots and two places to hold bills. It's only lacking a change pocket. My favorite part is the pearl snap.

I won't say cute, but those look really neat! I am amazed at the stuff you can whip up with some fabric, a needle, and some thread :)
