Little Wallet.....

It's a small finish but a finish none the less.
Valorie Wells Little Wallet.
I picked up the pattern during a visit to Iowa.
I chose Moda's Hideaway because I had layer cake square scraps that were just big enough for this.
plus I like Hideaway.

 This pattern is very well done. It was a breeze to complete.
I may make these for Christmas gifts this year.

Oh and by the way,
I noticed an odd similarity to the wonder wallet I made last year for Spring market.
The Color.
Apparently I have a "thing" for turquoise in my purse.

I bought that exact pattern and I love it too! I think it will make lovely gifts and it can help to use up my scraps! =)

I've been making these ever since I got my first one by Vera Bradley (it's actually not her wallet but called the credit card keeper). I think that was about 10 years ago! Of course, now it seems that everyone has a version-a little curve here, a point there...they are all cute! (I do love your turquiose!)

This is one of my favorite wallet patterns. I add a keyring to the side of mine and use it all the time! I gave them away as christmas gifts last year and they are a big hit!

Very cute wallet. I'm not familiar with that pattern, but definitely want to check it out. I agree this would make fun Christmas gifts too.

Very cute wallets. I have made a lot of wonder wallets. How do you like Valerie's wallet in comparison. I am wondering if it would be worth buying the pattern or just change the wonder wallet on my own.

So cute! I have this pattern and may just need to make one today! Love the idea of using it for Christmas gifts, too!

I have 3 stuffed up versions of that little wallet, and you have just reminded me that I need to try again. One I stitched by hand and it the fabric frayed a bit. One I placed the pockets in the incorrect order so the larger pocket obscured the contrasting smaller pocket, and the other one my top stitching was wonky.

LOL! All me and not pattern related, but it does come together very quickly and definitely easy to make more than one at a time, especially if making as gifts!
